New on the Avalanche GTR 650 EVO-R are the gull wing doors and front headlamps from the current Carrera GT. Updated are also the the LED taillights from the most recent 911 and a new carbon fiber rear skirt. Power remains at 650 hp and 950 Nm of torque.
The Gemballa AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R comes to us courtesy of GEMBALLA Automobiltechnik GmbH & Co. KG, a German tuner which tries to expand the simple song and dance number that is the Porsche 911 turbo into a full-fledged musical extravaganza.
Hurricane, typhoon, tornado...no, let's call this one the avalanche. And what exactly is the analogy to the car here of a multi-ton pile of snow that comes down on you? Hey, has anyone ever measured the horsepower readings of an avalanche?
In any case, this is a facelift and the main points to note are the new, specially-designed butterfly doors and front headlights borrowed from the current Carrera GT. Updated are also the the LED taillights from the most recent facelifted 911 and a new carbon fiber rear skirt with integrated diffuser for the quad-pipes of the aluminum sport exhaust system.
But the Gemballa AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R is still a marvel of tuning with its custom made bonnet and side skirts and other parts forged from metal and welded to the body shell. Leonberg-based Gemballa also makes use of carbon fiber parts to keep the weight down such as with the front lip and wings.
Performance stays the same at 650 hp (478 kW) and 950 Nm of torque maxing out at 6,200 and 4,600 rpm, respectively. 0 to 100 km/h for the all-wheel drive AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R clocks in a 3.4 seconds and top speed is a breezy 332 km/h.
