From 300km/h to 0 in 3.79 seconds
Having started in 1961 as a small mechanical workshop, Brembo has specialised since the mid-1960s in the production of brake discs and calipers. In a very short space of time it grew to become official supplier to Ferrari and to the leading automobile and motorcycle racing teams. An absolute global landmark in the braking systems industry, Brembo transformed a mechanical component so successfully into “a sculpture with outstanding performances” as to win the prestigious Compasso d’Oro design award twice. The company operates in 15 countries on 3 continents and relies on the services of over 12,000 people. Of these, a considerable number (about 10%) are engineers and specialists involved in research and development.
