Gemballa breaks the ugly stick on Tornado 750 GTS

Gemballa breaks the ugly stick on Tornado 750 GTS

Gemballa Tornado fq

Aftermarket tuner Gemballa has been responsible for some pretty over-the-top Porsche models in the last few years, but the new Tornado 750 GTS rules supreme for ugly visual impact and unnecessary amounts of horsepower.

Using the Porsche Cayenne Turbo as a base, Gemballa starts by hacking off an incredible 250kg thanks in part to carbon-fibre bodywork that provides increased downforce and vents air to the front brakes as well as away from the engine compartment.

The turbocharged V8 has been upgraded with displacement being increased to 5.0-liters, and upgraded pistons and connecting rods have been added with racing turbocharger providing extra boost. The result is 750 horsepower and 775 lb-ft torque, 0-100 km/h (62 mph) in just 4.3 seconds, and a top speed of 300 kph. In addition all the power can be given exclusively to the rear wheels if the customer requests it.

With astounding performance but unfortunate looks and a ridiculous €400,000 price tag, Gemballa may have a tough time selling many of the planned production run of fifty cars.
