Gemballa is a company based in Leonberg, Germany, which is near Stuttgart. Founded by Uwe Gemballa in 1981, it is most notable for providing aftermarket parts for Porsche.
Custom interpretations of the Porsche Carrera GT by Gemballa received much attention and praise. Now Gemballa is playing with the carbon edition of the Mirage GT, first seen in February. Gemballa is known for creating amazing variations, and will likely take the Mirage to an entirely new level of awesomeness, though it will be an exclusive awesomeness, as it will produce only five samples.
The Gemballa GT stacks a powerful 750 horsepower up against its competition, and the Carbon Edition hits about 670. The untweaked Carbon Edition packs about 50 horses more than the Porsche Carrera GT stock.
Now lets get down to specs. Gemballa tuned the GT rather nicely, allowing it to blast from 0-62 miles per hour in about 3.7 seconds. After about 9.7 seconds, it can rocket passengers to about 124 miles per hour-if they have a need for speed. The boost ups the stock record nicely, and it gave the GT a top speed of about 209 miles per hour. Pretty impressive Gemballa-perhaps you can tweak and trick some of our fast exotic rental cars.
