Say what you want about the year Gemballa has had, but you can’t deny that when these guys buckle down and bring their lunch pails to work, they’re one of the best in the business when it comes to tuning high-powered sports cars.

One product line that has been associated with Gemballa has been the Mirage GT, which is based on the Porsche Carrera GT. Over the years, Gemballa has released a number of Mirage models based on the Carrera GT, including the Carbon Edition, the Matte Edition, the Black Edition, and the Gold Edition. Recently, the German tuning company released the latest iteration of the super aggressive Mirage GT, christening it the "Matte Blue Edition".

Similar to its predecessors, the Mirage GT Matte Blue Edition is powered by Gemballa’s own V10 engine that produces 650 horsepower and 464 lb/ft of torque, up from the standard output of 612 horsepower and 435 lb/ft of torque the standard Carrera GT comes in. Those figures translate to a 0-62 mph time of 3.7 seconds (down from the stock version’s 3.9-second time) with a top speed of 208 mph, which in turn is up from the Carrera GT’s 205-mph top speed.

Aerodynamically, the Mirage GT Matte Blue Edition comes with the same aerodynamic kit as all the other special edition models, which is to say that we expect Gemballa’s rather over-the-top aerodynamic package on the front, side, and rear of the car to be highlighted on the Matte Blue Edition. Likewise, this version of the Mirage GT will also carry the same interior treatment, including the carbon seatblends, and the two-tone - in this case, its black and white - leather finish.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

It seems so perfect on my eyes! This GT Matte Blue Edition will surely be a big hit on the market and I bet that this one is really a powerful one.

I love the paint job of this Matte Blue Edition. Gemaballa is really an awesome car. I also found that the engine is a complete package for a Porsche car.

IMO, matte is the best paint job I’ve known no matter is the color! However,I was a bit disappointed with the output since the engine and the whole package is just the same with their special edition. So,what would i expect on this car?

Well, I have to say that Gemballa is one of the iconic sportscar tuner that produces the best performing cars. BTW, I want to see this car makes in way on the Nurburgring and attempt to make a record.

I was right! the first thing that popped in my mind when i saw this car is the Carrera GT! I like all matte color,and matte blue look good on Mirage. I would love t read more about the performance and specs of the car to appreciate it more!

Yeah, you’re right, there are actually a lot on this car that is worth the look. For one, the blue color is definitely a great choice for the /car’s exterior.

Ok, let’s stop talking complaining about the color! Gemballa should come up with more sleeker roofline and better headlights. Is there other tuner versions for this one?

  (676) posted on 03.11.2011

Yeah, Gemballa seems to be bent on regaining their top form. Good thing that they are focusing on their top models, including the Mirage GT.

Blue is really a nice color on this one. Gemballa really did well on this one, considering that this is the same edition as their other Mirage GT releases.
