I imagine if you're posting this you probably already know how much a set of those typically costs as factory option for other vehicles, correct?

Ya they are ridiculously expensive, maybe an add on option like the Audi RS3 or just for promo hype purposes...

Ceramic? - No....those are just the normal R35 Brakes. The R35 uses conventional materials. Full-floating two-piece rotors, The outer rotor is cast iron and the hub is aluminum. The pads are also conventional materials.

You'll find the R35 brakes on the Version S (Sport) and the Nismo (when it comes)

It absolutely will not have carbon ceramic brakes lol. Putting brakes that cost 1/4 of the car would be a horrible idea. And the leaked production cars already confirmed it'll be getting the same 4 piston Akebonos that the current 370Z uses.

Yes 6 piston brakes and still sporting that weak viscous LSD - what a mismatch.
