Maico disc brakes (1963-)
In 1963 German Maico offered disc brakes for VW 1200 and Karmann Ghia. In the early 60's there was lots of possibilities to get your VW moving faster, such as Judson and Mag superchargers, Express and especially Okrasa kits. Porsche engines were also quite often used in Volkswagens, and the only way to get your VW to stop before Maico disc brakes was install Porsche brakes. Maico's weren't so good (read the test below) and only quite few pairs exist today, because they weren't long-lasting enough.
