In the process of rebuilding their tuning empire after the devastating loss of Gemballa founder, Uwe Gemballa , the company has arrived at the 2011 Top Marques Monaco with two new packages: the Tornado based on the new Cayenne and the 2011 Mistrale based on the Panamera sedan. Both models are defined by the most impressive design, cutting edge technology and the finest materials.
For the Mistrale, Gemballa is offering two stages of engine updates. In stage one, the twin-turbo V8 engine has been tuned to deliver 610 HP and a peak torque of 626 lbs-ft. Stage two takes power to a more incredible 700 HP and 737 HP. This significant output is achieved through the use of larger turbochargers, a modified intake system, high efficiency intercoolers, sports exhaust, free-flow catalytic converters and bespoke ECU remapping.
"We have significantly reduced weight, but without compromising strength, safety or comfort," explained Andreas Schwarz, CEO of GEMBALLA GmbH. "Rather than cutting into the steel panels and bonding on new parts, as is common in the aftermarket industry, we completely replace entire panels with bespoke carbon-fiber ones that use the original mounting points," he said. "These new panels, which include the bonnet, front wings, doors, front and rear bumper/valance, save a total of 70kg."
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.

When we hear the world Gemballa thoughts of highly modified Porsche Cayenne s and super tuned Carrera GT s, however it comes at no surprise that this Gundam winged Ferrari Enzo super car comes from the same stable as Tornado s and Mirage s. The Gemballa MIG-U1 will be limited to only 25 units, every single one of them being individually adjusted.
Gemballa is remaining a bit tight lipped about the specifics surrounding the MIG U1 and won’t reveal any of the tuned super car’s official details until the invitation only launch in Dubai. The kit looks like it started as a take on Ferrari’s FXX program and then morphed into something more reminiscent of a stealth bomber with its pronounced wing and assortment of scoops all covered in a coat of Championship White. On the inside, the Enzo’s business only attitude has been given a bit of a plush makeover with special quilted red Alcantara covering the seats, steering wheel and interior trim as well as an in dash LCD screen to control the MIG’s in car entertainment system. Once again the German tuner has shown us their ability to take an already attractive high performance machine and completely transform it into something unrecognizably out of this world.
Updated 01/14/10: Thanks to an optimized engine management and a specially tuned exhaust system, the 6.5 Liter Ferrari V12 now develops a maximum output of 700 HP. Meanwhile Gemballa revealed all the highly modified Enzo’s possible exterior colors. Check out the gallery to see them all.
Gemballa has added an all new take onto their Tornado lineup of modified Porsche Cayenne SUV with a new forward opening hood and new lighting at all four corners. The Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS has a much more compact face thanks to the new Carrera GT head lamps that are housed underneath the new hinged sheet metal and manages to completely transform the character of the full size Cayenne much like when Ruf created the Dakara . Aside from the wide body fenders and traditional Tornado kit, the 750 GTS also features a reinforced chassis complete with sport suspension and an electronic lowering module that compliment the big brake kit housed inside the 22 inch Gemballa GT SPORT forged wheels.
On the inside Gemballa added a few high end features like night vision thanks to a tiny camera mounted in the front bumper and a set of sport buckets wrapped in luxurious leather and Alcantara back in the cabin that is adorned with a host of carbon fiber trim accent pieces. However Gemballa doesn’t call this Tornado a 750 GTS for nothing, after working their magic under the new engine cover and applying a few in house tricks, the German tuner has managed to extract a total of 750 HP from the twinturbocharged V8 Porsche .
The new Mirage GT Gold Edition comes with a few exterior accents finished in gold and a golden carbon fiber weave. The Gemballa creation features a host of ultra-light aerodynamics components, a ground-breaking hydraulically height-adjustable coilover kit and a some carbon fiber elements painted gold adorning the interior of the uberCarrera. The engine has been tuned to deliver a maximum output of 650 HP and 464 lb-ft of torque. This insane amount of power means that the Mirage GT Gold Edition can sprint from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 208 MPH.
The super car tuners, Gemballa, have just revealed the low down on their Mirage GT Carbon Edition that was announced back in February . This very unique creation gives Porsche Carrera GT owners the opportunity to fully transform their German speed machine in to this wild carbon creation, for the measly sum of 298,000 euro, or about $423,000. However the production run will be extremely limited, Gemballa is only planning on popping five examples out of the mold. So hurry up and place your orders.
The aero package was designed for speed; it includes a front apron with larger openings and extra ducts on the sides, just like the lower side skirts. An area of low pressure sucks the Mirage to the road at speed thanks to an integrated diffuser underneath the car and an oversized GT wing up top.
The Gemballa slices through the air thanks to a little extra power from a retuned ECU and free flowing exhaust system. The result is 670 HP from the Porsche built 5.7 Liter V10. The Mirage GT Carbon Edition will be able to go from 0 to 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds and hit a top speed of 208 MPH thanks to the new aero.
Yesterday we revealed you Gemballa Avalanche GTR650 Evo based on the Porsche 997 Carrera. Today, another masterpiece from the well-known tuning company made its debut, the Gemballa Avalanche Roadster GTR 600. Based on the Porsche 997 Turbo , the vehicle is powered by a 600 hp engine, sprinting from 0-100 km/h in less than 4 seconds while the top speed is beyond 300 km/h.
The kit of the car consist in a GT front bonnet, Avalanche front skirt, GT2 Evo Carbon front spoiler lip, a GTR Evo rear skirt and a GT rear spoiler. More information will be available after the official unveiling!
Based on the Porsche 997 Carrera, the Gembala GTR650 Avalanche made quite a buzz when it was launched, back in 2006. With 650 hp the car was capable to hit 200 km/h in just 11.2 seconds while the top speed was limited to 335 km/h. The vehicle’s engine delivered an impressive 820 Nm of torque at 4800 rpm. We say impressive due to the fact that a standard Porsche 997 Carrera delivered half of the torque, „only” 400 Nm at 4800 rpm.
Gemballa unveiled an Evo version of the GTR650 which involves a new aero package, featuring a GT Evo front bonnet, an Avalanche front skirt, GT2 Evo Carbon front lip, GTR Evo rear skirt and a GTR Evo Carbon rear spoiler. More informations when the official information will be unveiled!
