Gemballa announced big changes for the future. First of all, it will divide its business areas into three separate divisions. The development and production of the first own Gemballa Hypercar will be done in the Hypercar Division (HD). Additionally, the Luxury Customization Division (LCD) will group together the previous areas of vehicle refinement, performance enhancements, limited small series and one-offs. The Gemballa Classics Division (CD) will now be responsible for the maintenance and restoration of classic Gemballa vehicles.
Second of all, there are going to be a lot of cool cars launched in the future. One is a supercar called “GTR 8XX Evo-R BiTurbo” that will deliver an impressive 1,000 horsepower and 818 pound-feet of torque. It will go from 0 to 60 mph in 2.3 seconds and up to a top speed of over 370 km/h (230 mph). The first version will be launched in the summer.
And then there is the beast you see in these pictures. It is called Avalanche 4×4 and will be launched sometime this year.
According to Steffen Korbach, owner and CEO of Gemballa: “First and foremost, we will continue to focus on customizing and increasing the performance of Porsche models, but we are also open to other brands. The prototype of the Gemballa Avalanche 4.2 RS based on the Porsche 991, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, is now to be launched this year in an exclusive small series based on the Porsche 991 and 992. The performance data will outshine all comparable vehicles. In 2016, we already discussed the development of a 4×4 variant of the Porsche Cayenne as the Gemballa Tornado 4×4 and the Porsche 911 as the Gemballa Avalanche 4×4. Designs for both vehicles have been in the drawer for a long time.”
