GEMBALLA AVALANCHE ROADSTER
based on Porsche 997 Carrera/Turbo
Another French word adopted into English, Avalanche is universally understood as a force of nature that sees tons of snow cascading down a mountainside, burying everything in its path. The GEMBALLA AVALANCHE ROADSTER is another convertible unstoppable force. The original Avalanche from 1984 had a rousing 385hp. This was enough power to enable it to visit the far side of 300 km/h, making it one of the fastest cars of its time. The current 997 Turbo-based model boasts 671 hp and 925 Nm of torque, and covers the 0-100km/h sprint in 3.1 sec. Visually, this elemental force on wheels has a three-piece front spoiler and large air intakes spread across its under-bumper area. Modified side intakes and a larger, fixed rear spoiler complete the bodywork modifications. In 2014, the GEMBALLA AVALANCHE will celebrate its 30th anniversary, and simultaneously usher in the next generation of supercar to bear this legendary name. Its spiritual successor, based on the 991 Turbo S, will be rolled out in 2014. Its performance will surpass that of the current 997-based GEMBALLA AVALANCHE.
