The Panamera models have a braking system equipped with six-piston aluminium monobloc fixed brake calipers at the front and four-piston aluminium monobloc fixed calipers at the rear. The brake calipers on the Panamera, Panamera 4 and Panamera Diesel are finished in black; on the Panamera S models they are silver coloured and on the Panamera Turbo models they are red.
The brake discs are grooved and internally vented for optimum braking performance – even under extreme conditions – and rapid heat dispersal. The brake discs on the Panamera Turbo models have a diameter of 390 mm at the front and 350 mm at the rear, whilst on the other models, the discs are 360 mm in diameter at the front and 330 mm at the rear.
The anti-lock braking system (ABS) ensures uniform deceleration. A brake pad wear indicator informs you when the brake pads need to be replaced.
The electric parking brake, which you can activate and deactivate manually, releases automatically as you pull away. With the hill-hold function, you can pull away without ever rolling back.
