Gemballa has revealed its wild new Porsche 911 Turbo in full a couple days after dropping a series of teaser images. The vehicle, dubbed the Gemballa GTR 8XX EvoR BiTurbo has a complex name, an over-the-top design, and more performance than anyone could ever possibly need.
Rather than performing a costly engine swap, Gemballa opted to retain the 3.8-liter twin-turbocharged flat-six of the 911 Turbo and perform a series of comprehensive modifications. Sadly, the tuner hasn’t specified what exact upgrades the engine has benefited from, but at least we do have a series of key figures to lust over.
For starters, the GTR 8XX EvoR BiTurbo pumps out a brutal 807 hp and 810 lb-ft (1098 Nm) of torque. That’s a huge bump over the 572 hp and 516 lb-ft (700 Nm) of the standard 911 Turbo S and shows that Gemballa is just as wild as it was a decade ago with the Carrera GT-based Mirage GT. Not even a 911 GT2 RS would be capable of keeping up with the GTR 8XX.
In fact, Gemballa asserts its 911 rocketship will hit 62 mph (100 km/h) in 2.38 seconds before screaming past 124 mph (200 km/h) in 7.5 seconds. The vehicle’s top speed sits at a casual 211 mph (340 km/h).
While many 911 owners like the sports car for its subtlety, Gemballa’s overhauled 911 Turbo screams “LOOK AT ME” and makes certain Italian exotics seem rather bland. Up front, there’s a bespoke hood with large air extractors and a new front splitter. The tuner has also fitted flared wheel arches which extend the width of the car by 30 mm at the front and 50 mm at the rear. This has allowed for the fitment of wider wheels and tires than a typical Turbo. but once again, we haven’t been provided with specifics.
All in all, this is a Porsche 911 Turbo for those that want to make a very loud statement and go hypercar hunting if they so wish.
