Brembo commissioned famed action sports designer Troy Lee Designs to paint one of the company’s all-new B-M6 brake calipers for the 2018 SEMA Show. The Troy Lee-painted B-M6 can be viewed in the Brembo booth #23261 in Central Hall.

In 2011, Lee designed the Flying Lizard Porsche Le Mans livery. The design celebrated the entry of its first-ever two-car lineup into the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The livery was applied to the #80 911 GT3 RSR that was driven in the GTE Pro class by Jörg Bergmeister, Patrick Long and Lucas Luhr and finished sixth in class. The blue-and-orange livery offers a subtle nod to the ’70 J.W. Automotive Gulf 917 Kurzhecks made famous by Steve McQueen’s Le Mans, while the scheme incorporates the names and national flags of all the drivers who have secured overall victories at Le Mans behind the wheel of a Porsche.

The Brembo B-M6 is a six-piston aluminum monobloc caliper designed for the front corners of sports coupes and sedans, high-performance SUVs and supercars that use either cast-iron or Brembo’s CCM-R carbon-ceramic discs. It accommodates brake discs up to 410x36mm. It is available in five colors: black, red, yellow, white and fluorescent yellow.
