Gumballa Porsche Turbo

The AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO R the chairman and founder Uwe Gemballa follows this success story and presents the face-lifted version of the previous AVALANCHE-generation. Equipped with a awe inspiring car form design and an auto body which has been broadened with Thyssen steel, the super sports car
sets benchmarks for production quality and design accents.

But that is not enough: the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R offers elaborate, supreme technology and with 650 PS its tuned engine delivers an enormous top speed of 332 km/h.

Already at first glance, the AVALANCHE explicitly underlines its ties with the extreme sports car fraternity. Especially designed gull wing doors and the new front headlights from the Carrera GT, leave significant visual form features. The same applies for the powerful metal extensions which were specially produced in a Thyssen Group subsidiary and then directly welded to the body shell. The GEMBALLA technicians developed a custom-made bonnet and side skirts as well. The front wings are replaced by a carbon version. Following the facelift of the current Porsche 911 induction engine models, GEMBALLA gives the AVALANCHE a visual refreshment as well. A part of this modernisation is the entirely re-designed front skirt. The integrated carbon front lip conveys the air to the large cooling slits and gives the car an even more lowered look.

Also the rear section of the AVALANCHE contains a makeover: the most striking feature is the use of LED tail lamps from the current Porsche 911. Moreover, this is additionally enhanced by a new rear skirt.
