Stormtrooper Enzo

Gemballa reveals its most, er, adventurous project yet – a jet-fighter-inspired Enzo

Stormtrooper Enzo

Go on, take another good look at that picture. Struggling with your gag reflex? We understand, but stick at it. Somehow this thing gets better the more you stare at it.

It's another tuned wonder from German uber-tweakers Gemballa - a jet-fighter inspired Enzo called Mig-U1.

It looks like an FXX that's wearing a bit too much make-up, and Gemballa claims the long list of aerodynamic changes - including wide arches, reprofiled nose, roof scoop, assorted gills and that massive rear wing - are worth an extra 35kg of downforce at the front and 85 at the back.

Inside, it's a mix of equally in-yer-face Alcantara and leather with some, er, nice red touches. A revised centre console helps house a 950-watt stereo system with seven-inch touchscreen.

Power? Thanks to an upgraded ECU and exhaust you're looking at 700bhp and, apparently, those new alloys save you 16kg over the standard alloys which might help the handling a bit. And perhaps offset that likely quite hefty interior.

There's no word on prices yet, but Gemballa is talking about transforming 25 Enzos, tailored to customer's own taste. Check out its website for what ‘taste' means in this context. Mr Enzo, we fear, would not have approved...

Now share it...
