Aluminum brake calipers?

Are the standard brakes on the 350Z cast aluminum? I was taking a look at them and they seemed aluminum, instead of iron.

I'm pretty sure they are not made of iron. Safe bet would be that they are treated aluminum, since they don't rust.
They actually do rust. They are steel, coated with an anticorrosion. When I have sanded them smooth before powdercoating, they quickly develop light surface rust if not bathed in a metal prep that prevents it.
