Gemballa has introduced its new GT.

Based on the McLaren 650S, the model features a subtle carbon fiber body kit that includes new side skirts which give the car a "lower and sleeker" appearance.  The coupe has also been equipped with a new rear bumper that features an integrated diffuser which promises to reduce lift.  The changes sound relatively minor but Gemballa says they help to provide additional downforce for increased cornering speeds.

A closer inspection reveals 20- / 21-inch GForged-one lightweight alloy wheels.  In order to ensure the wheels fit properly, Gemballa installed new carbon-fiber inner wheel arches which provide additional space for the enlarged wheels.

Owners looking to spruce up the McLaren's interior can order a bespoke cabin that has everything from premium leather upholstery to special floor mats.

On the performance front, the GT has been equipped with an optimized ECU which enables the biturbo 3.8-liter V8 engine to produce 670 horsepower and 536 pound-feet of torque.  This presents an increase of 20 hp and 36 lb-ft of torque. Gemballa declined to say how faster the car is but the standard McLaren 650S accelerates from 0-62 miles per hour in 3.0 seconds before hitting a top speed of 207 mph.

The entire performance package costs $38,286 (€33,900) and includes VAT.
