Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS)
ABS reduces wheel lock under heavy braking situations by momentarily releasing brake pressure at the wheels required. This improves stopping distances on most surfaces, improves braking efficiency and enables better steering in demanding braking conditions.
Electronic Stability Control (ESC)
Exclusively calibrated by HSV, the ClubSport R8 LSA’s ESC system monitors steering wheel angle and speed to make turning corners safer. If loss of traction occurs, ESC activates to apply brake pressure to individual wheels and, if necessary, reduces engine power.
Electronic Brake Assist (EBA)
In emergency braking situations, few people apply the required pressure to the brake pedal. EBA activates to optimise brake pressure performance.
