Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition – details released

Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition – details released

Gemballa Mirage GT fq

The Porsche Carrera GT has finished its production run, but that doesn’t mean German tuning house Gemballa has to stop having fun with it.

The latest Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition got some attention back in February, but details and images were scarce, both have now emerged. The name gives it away and the modified Carrera GT features a lot of carbon fibre trim, but the carbon on the latest Mirage isn’t just for show: the aerodynamic changes improve the car’s performance by channeling airflow in and around the supercar to keep it breathing free and gripped to the tarmac.

Naturally, Gemballa hasn’t stopped there. The Porsche V10 powerplant has been tuned to produce 670 horsepower and 465 lb-ft of torque, enough to propel the GT up to 100 km/h in just 3.7 seconds and on to a top speed of 334 kph. There’s also an electro-hydraulic adjustable suspension to keep that carbon fibre low points clear of curbs. The package costs a ridiculous 300,000 euros, which doesn’t even include the cost of the donor car, and production will be limited to just five examples.
