Gemballa unveils the ‘Tornado’
Gemballa says its two newest creations, the Cayenne-based Tornado and Panamera-based ‘Mistrale’, are ‘works of automotive art’.
In fact, the German tuner adds that ‘if the highest levels of individuality and exclusivity are requirements for greatness, these offerings qualify’.
While you chew on that for a moment, both models get most of their outer body panels replaced with carbon-fibre equivalents, 22in wheels and Brembo brakes.
The Tornado (above) gets 580bhp while the Panamera-based Mistrale gets 610bhp and 626lb ft of torque. If you’re ‘really hungry’, Gemballa can offer 700bhp and 737lb ft for both models, thanks to ruddy big turbos, a sports exhaust, high efficiency intercoolers and bespoke ECU mapping. That’s quite an appetite.
Naturally, Gemballa will deck out the interior using many cows and lots of Alcantara, and frankly, we’re speechless. Just 30 will be made of each. Discuss.
