“The Gemballa Mirage GT – Turning your Porsche up to 11“
How to stand out in a crowd of exotic super cars: Step 1 – Purchase $450,000 Porsche Carrera GT. Step 2 – Call up your accountant and set aside $300,000. Step 3 – Fly your newly-acquired super car to Stuttgart, Germany. Step 4 – Give world renowned Porsche-tuner Gemballa your $300,000, and in a few months time they’ll transform your standard Carrera GT, into a head turning, fire breathing, super car monster, the Gemballa Mirage GT.
“While only 1,270 standard Carrera GTs were built from the Porsche factory, only 25 chassis of these ultra rare, bespoke models will be built. Each one hand specified by the customer, Gemballa offers a complete bespoke package. From the wildly outrageous aerodynamics that the new body panels provide, to the tuned engine and exhaust, this car is a unique expression of the owner and gives him/her the chance to exhibit his/her own tastes in ways that a factory chassis couldn’t provide. Down to the color of the stitching and the weave of the carbon fiber adornments on the interior, to the angle and pitch of the rear diffuser and winglets, this car is extreme wheel to roof scoops.
“The engine receives a healthy upgrade as well, up from the original 612 horsepower, the Mirage now sports 670 horses, and 630 Nm of torque. Couple those with power to the rear wheels through a 6 speed manual transmission that accelerates to over 60 mph in just 3.6 seconds.
“Currently there are only 2 chassis in North America, and with the limited run of just 25 cars coming to a close, if you are looking to have one of the wildest Porsches out there, call Gemballa quickly to place your order. Values of used cars trade around $750,000 and up, and with a limited run, the market most likely won’t go any lower. This car offers the chance to have a bespoke vehicle to show your neighbors your style, and ensure that no matter how many PCA meets you go to, that you have one of the rarest cars in the crowd.
