Last saturday I was driving my car like a beast. I din't change my brake pads tough my current ones I believe was long time gone.
So, driving like mad man trough the city I have hit harder the brakes. I've heard a freaking sound and in the same time the brake was all the way to the floor, dead brake.
I'm fucking lucky because my speed was almost 3-3km/h.
I'll change the fucking callipers and will put some vented disks.

I have seen near the front right wheel all my brake fluid.
The hose to the calliper it's not broken. I believe that my calliper got very hot and braked.
What could be the reasons for breaking my master cylinder.

LOL Kynyption :D:D

Seriously though let me explain for tavioman.
It may be that the master cylinder failed first and caused the grinding noise you heard and your pads may be fine. This is usually how the master cylinder fails, it happened to me when I was pulling into a mall.

For over two months I have heard from right front wheel a friction sound when I hit the brake. It was a sound like two iron plates are rubbing together. My plates where over 2 or 3 years old. Everything was over with a huge pop near the wheel and all my breaking fluid was out. All the fluid has come out near the respective wheel. How can the master cylinder cause this??

Your caliper piston seal probably blew maybe. Have you considered taking the caliper off the rotor and inspecting the damage since you posted this yesterday?
