CAR giant Daimler/Chrysler is about to introduce ceramic brake discs - developed from space technology.
The discs are produced using ceramic material reinforced with carbon fibre, which make them almost indestructible.
Initial field tests have shown they can still reliably bring a vehicle to rest even after being used for more than 200,000 miles.
AT this year's Birmingham International Motor Show at the NEC in October a whole hall will be devoted to the retail sector. In 1998 more than 100 firms exhibited.
