GEMBALLA GT Concept Sema Show 2017

GEMBALLA presents the new GEMBALLA GT Concept at SEMA Las Vegas. At two locations of the extensive exhibition grounds, GEMBALLA presents its new GT Concept to the interested audience as a world debut. At stand 62122 of the company Toyo Tire, as well as in the foyer of the South Hall Area. And there is much to see. Already at first glance of the vehicle’s silhouette, the potent transformation of the Porsche 991 Turbo series into the GEMBALLA GT Concept becomes evident. Masculine bodywork expansion in line with striking front and rear modifications creates a self-assured appearance. However, the latest development of the Leonberg-based premium tuner, GEMBALLA, provides much more than a fascinating new aerodynamics concept: The performance increase to 828 hp in combination with the configurable performance handling system makes the GT Concept one of the strongest and fastest sports cars for use on the street as well as on the race track. The GT Concept benefits from a wealth of experience with individualised Porsche supercars that hardly any other automobile refiner can draw on: numerous lap records on the Nordschleife, the Hockenheimring and the Sachsenring have clearly documented this since the company was founded in 1981. The ultra-light carbon bodywork components form the best tool for future records. The interplay of front skirt with integrated splitter, rear skirt with diffuser, rear fender and adjustable rear wings ensure aerodynamics to reduce friction as well as a spectacular design. The fender attachments broaden the bodywork on the front axle by 30 millimetres and on the rear axle by 50 mm, and create space for wider, more adhesive wheels. Especially for the increased requirements of the power Porsche, GEMBALLA fits a finely adjustable chassis and an aligned wheel-tyre combination. Because of the production of the 21-inch alloy wheel GRS-F1 made using forging technology, it is especially light and therefore significantly improves the handling and driving properties. The wheel-tyre combination is used in 9,0Jx21-inch dimensions with a size of 255/30ZR21 at the front and 12.0Jx21-inch rims with 325/25ZR21 at the back. Large ventilation openings in the newly designed rear apron offer a view into the heart of the GT CONCEPT - the largely modified power unit: The performance of the 3.8 litre boxer biturbo engine has been increased by the GEMBALLA engine technicians from a standard 540hp/397kW to 828 hp/609 kW at 7,000 rpm. At the same time, the maximum torque has increased from 660 Nm to 952 Nm at 5,200 rpm. The Performance Turbo system includes intake manifolds and air intake housings made of carbon, reworked cylinder heads and valves, new throttle valve bodies, high-performance air filters, a folding-controlled sports exhaust system with metal catalytic converters and a new engine and gearbox management system. Measures that are plain to see. At 2.38 seconds to 100 km/h, the GT Concept outperforms its serial counterpart by more than a second. The new top speed is sensational: Due to increased performance, the top speed is well over 360 km/h. However, negative acceleration is equally improved. GEMBELLA optimises and reduces the stopping distance by fitting a carbon-ceramic sports braking system. At the front axle, 6-piston brake calipers grip 380 mm thick disks. At the rear, 4-piston brake calipers and 360 mm disks delay propulsion. In the interior, GEMBALLA combines the finest materials with proven motor sport components. The upholsterers only use selected leather hides and the best alcantara for the covers of the fittings, bucket seats and the roll bar. Precisely crafted embroidering of the GEMBALLA logo in the foot mats and the head rests provides an additional visual focus.
