2010 Gemballa Avalanche GTR 750 EVO-R

Many Porsche 911 models have been christened with the Avalanche name since the mid-1980s when Gemballa came out with their first Avalanche tuning package for the sports car. Since that first project, the Gemballa-911 models bearing the name have become masterpieces in their own right and Gemballa is ready to show the world just how special this model is.

At the upcoming 2011 Retro Classics, Gemballa will prove that they offer the best tuning programs for the Porsche 911 models by bringing back the Avalanche GTR 750 EVO-R for display. This is a model that has been tuned to deliver an impressive 750hp and hit a top speed of 208 mph. Next to this impressive engine update, the Evo-R will also be heavily modified on both the exterior and the interior, with a new set of 20" racing wheels and a black and orange exterior combination to boot.

Thanks to the engine updates provided by Gemballa, the Gemballa Avalanche GTR 750 EVO-R now delivers 750hp. As if the sheer number wasn’t enough, Gemballa also added a new sports exhaust system with four-pipes, a new sport brake system, and a new set of Coilover Suspensions.

This is one tuning package where, if you’re interested, you better give Gemballa a serious call. For the rest of us that just like to live vicariously through the wealthy customers willing and able to purchase the Avalanche, we’ll stick to ogling it at the 2011 Retro Classics on March 13, 2011.

Competition

There are thousands of tuning packages for the Porsche 911 Turbo, so choosing one for comparison is like Tiger Woods having to choose which mistress to take home for the night. Just recently Sportec revealed the SPR1 FL that delivers an incredible 858 hp, but there were no changes made to the exterior. Gemballa has changed it up for the outside look of the car, but they stand at about 100 hp less than the SPR1 FL model. Six in one hand, half a dozen in the other.

SpeedArt also has a pretty impressive package for the 911 Turbo called the BTR II 650 EVO . As you might have guessed it, the package develops a total of 650 HP and 900 NM of torque and will hit a top speed of over 208 mph. We’d easily still take the Avalanche over the BTR II 650 EVO any day of the week.

I’ve heard a lot of good things about Avalanche GTR. First talking about bearing the name of masterpieces, another is the tuning programs available doing for it, and the last the modified and distinct styled of its exterior and interior design.

Wow. Nice cool car. The color combination looks really great. It will surely boost because the whole body is made-up of carbon fiber. Well, compare to other cars, I think this Gemballa Avalanche will have a hard time with it’s competition.

Well, I notice that the headlight of the car is different from other Porsche. There is no sign that the idea is from Porsche 911. I do like the color of the car. The orange one is unique since only few manufacturers are using it.

I want to congratulate the Gemballa for perfectly modifying the Porsche 911. I haven’t seen any Porsche touched in this car. However, its kind of disappointing that the power of this car is not that impressive.

This is perhaps one of Gemballa’s best works. It is quite balanced in terms of style and performance. Certainly a great way to start the year right.

I am really a big fan of Gemballa’s work, so I was a bit worried for them with all the issues that they had to go through last year. But with this one, it seems that they are now finally back on track.

It seems that Gemballa is finally starting to return to its feet once again, after all that they have gone through last year (including the death of their founder). Pretty impressive job on this one.
