Your car brakes are suddenly a fashion statement

High-fashion brake calipers will be one of the next frontiers in automotive design, as big, low-profile tyres and open-faced wheels grow more common. At least that’s what the brake manufacturers are saying.
According to Brembo North America president and CEO Dan Sandberg, the company already makes calipers in more than 100 colours, including 12 shades of red (for years, bright-red Brembo calipers have been a badge of honour for performance cars), but now automakers are using them for more targeted purposes.
