Brembo Reminds People: Our Calipers Don't Just Come in Red
Brake specialist Brembo is almost synonymous with the color red. And while you can get their calipers in a wide gamut of colors aside from red like black, silver, and even neon yellow, they’re reminding carmakers and aftermarket tuners that they can be much more creative.
Shown at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show, the Brembo Art Calipers are some peculiarly styled calipers finished in camo, animal print, and many more.
While Brembo says the exhibit is meant to show that they’re “playing with the latest trend in fashion, art, style, and design,” they also said that they have no plans to mass produce these “art calipers” for now. However, it serves as a reminder to carmakers and even aftermarket tuners about the infinite possibilities Brembo can do with something as mundane as a brake caliper.
It’s almost impossible to think an animal-print brake caliper will appear in the next high-performance supercar or luxury SUV any time soon, but expect more of these art calipers to crop up at aftermarket shows around the world.
