Ceramic Brakes Will Be Available

What goes up must come down, grippy tires and good brakes will keep you safe

Quote:
Excellent deceleration characteristics and high fade resistance come courtesy of the high-performance composite brake system on the GT with internally ventilated, perforated 360-millimetre brake discs all-round; on the GT S with discs measuring 390 millimetres in diameter at the front, to cope with the higher performance, as well as red brake callipers. A ceramic high-performance composite brake system is available for both models as an option.
Its advantages: lower weight, longer service life and even better fade resistance thanks to the ceramic brake discs with a diameter of 402 millimetres at the front and 360 millimetres at the rear

I've driven cars with ceramic brakes and prefer the less expensive non-ceramics. I don't drive hard enough for the ceramics to make a difference.

good point, ceramics need higher temps to reach optimal efficiency, difficult to achieve on the street indeed.
