Mercedes SL55 AMG brakes with 8-piston front calipers on a 350Z

Met up with some friends last night - one of them owns a Volkswagen Golf R32 and a 350Z.

This is probably the coolest thing that I've seen done to a Z33. He managed to source a pair of SL55 AMG 8-pot vented discs brakes (front) and put it on his Zed.

Stops like nobody's business, as he demonstrated quite well last night and on some pretty wet roads.

And the clearance is actually pretty big! I thought I wouldn't be able to fit my fingers into the space between the caliper and the rim but its actually not tight at all.
