The Porsche super tuners Gemballa have just revealed their latest toy, the Mirage GT Matt Edition, a flat black version of the hottest Carrera GT ever made. The matte wears a bodykit that is identical to the Cardon Edition revealed back in February except that this one is given a stealth like appearance by the lack of reflective surface.

The interior is a stark contrast from what’s outside, the colorful center caps on the wheels are the only aesthetic touches to the exterior, but the inside has been recovered in beautiful blue and grey suede. Even the headliner now matched the seat inserts, steering wheel and dash.

The GT is powered by a Gemballa V10 engine that delivers 670 HP and 465 lb-ft of torque. The new stealth special edition is capable of hitting a top speed of 208 MPH. The vehicle’s acceleration has been improved as well; reaching 60 MPH in 3.7 seconds and 125 MPH in just 9.7, the stock vehicle can hit those speeds in 3.9 seconds and 9.9 ticks of the chronometer respectively.

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.

Press release after the jump.

Answering the age old question like who is better Superman or Batman? Our friends at GTboard have conducted some very official closed course testing that pits the pride of Stuttgart the Porsche Carrera GT against the prancing horse from Maranello the Ferrari 599 GTB . Who is faster, the mid-engine 5.7 Liter V10 in the carbon fiber bodied Porsche, or the front engine V12 sourced from the Enzo connected to an F1 inspired Superfast transmission. Watch the video to find out. By the way, Batman would drive the Porsche.

Why mess with perfection. From the factory the Porsche Carrera GT is capable of tremendous things. Mostly thanks to the 612 HP 5.7 Liter V10 mounted behind the driver. But the appearance of the supercar from Stuttgart did well with the Koenigseder treatment of an aggressive aero treatment and a shocking orange paint job.

The Porsche Carrera GT may be out of production for over two years now, but that still doesn’t make it any less desirable. It also doesn’t meant the tuners don’t need to stop upgrading the car.

9ff, the tuning house that has made some earth-shattering cars from Poreches like the GT9 , has gotten its hands on a Carrera GT. It’s called the GTT 900 pack, and it was showcased at the Essen Motor Show in Germany this weekend.

The standard V10 unit was upgraded by about 50 percent to give the car a new total 900 horsepower. Improvements include new camshafts, less restrictive exhaust manifolds, and a special muffler with a unique valve system and end-pipes. A just in case people didn’t think you were special enough for driving Carrera GT, 9ff added bright red "look at me" paint.

Porsches are usually known for their exceptional braking, but in the case of this Carrera GT it seems this Porsche never got the chance to prove it. We don’t have any information on what turned this into a $440,000 paper weight, but we’re still going to shed a tear for the knowing that the world has one less of the rare supercar (under 1300 were produced.)
