With more corner grip and straight line stability, it was fitted with larger tires than those of its predecessors. Like its predecessor, the Chevrolet relies on Brembo carbon-ceramic brakes, which restrain the American sports car after 31 meters.

6. Mercedes-AMG GT R Pro

For the GT R Pro, Mercedes-Benz-AMG launched a smaller version in 2019 that was more intense than the powerful GT R.

With the 720S main car, McLaren aimed to widen the gap with the European competition. To accomplish this, horsepower increased from 650 (in the last 650S) to 720 horses. In addition, Woking engineers provided 720S better aerodynamics and carbon fiber design lights. Performance improvements not only because of the new engine, but also for the seven-speed two-speed two-clutch gearbox. According to the manufacturer, the supercar can go from 0 to 100 km / h in 2.9 seconds and reach a mark of 200 km / h in 4.9 seconds, before losing 341 km / h. 1283 kg of dry weight is brought to a stand by carbon-ceramic brakes, which bring the car faster after a distance of 29.7 meters per 100 km / h.

4. Lamborghini Aventador SVJ

Lamborghini designed the Aventador SVJ using high-light materials, such as carbon fiber for the body. The Sant’Agata Bolognese race car is powered by a 6.5-liter, 770 hp V-based V12 engine. With a dry weight of 1525 kg, distributed 57% backwards, the weight / strength ratio is 1.98 kg / cv. To power the engine, Lamborghini opted for fixed pistons six pistons in the front and four pistols in the rear. Both calipers were designed in a co-design to fully integrate with the car design. The result: an impressive and light brake system that, in the event of a power break of 100 km / h, brings the Lamborghini to a stop after 29.9 meters.

3. Ferrari 488 Pista

With 488 Pista, the second Ferrari enters the top 10 sports cars with the most efficient stopping systems.
