Manufacturers often struggle when it comes to the production of high-end automobiles. Engineers and designers need to come up with a perfect balance of stunning aesthetics and performance. Moreover, there are instances wherein certain limitations are imposed to make the machine street-legal. This is exactly why enthusiasts who want to unlock the potential of their ride turn to after-market services. Here we have a prime example of what could be done, the Gemballa GTR 8XX Evo-R.
This project starts offs with a Porsche 911 Turbo, which is by no means an underpowered vehicle. The default configuration already flaunts more than 572 horsepower and 516 lb-ft of torque under the hood. Thanks to the shop’s expert tuning, this unlocks a jaw-dropping 807 horsepower and 810 lb-ft of torque boost in performance. We are awestruck by how they were able to draw out more from the stock 3.8-liter flat-six engine.
A generous amount of carbon fiber wraps the body to reduce the overall weight of the sports car. You can see only a shadow of the original Porsche 911 Turbo as its body kit also tweaks its appearance. These visible changes include a vented hood, three intakes on the new front bumper, and a towering rear wing for additional downforce. The Gemballa GTR 8XX Evo-R also sports wider fenders that measure 1.97 inches on the rear and 1.18 inches up front. You can even request to have the body kit in a glossy or matte finish. The amount of customization and tuning that goes into this project lets you accelerate from standstill to 62 mph in just 2.38 seconds.
