If you love cars, then you definitely heard of the Gemballa Mirage GT based on the impressive Porsche Carrera GT, a supercar introduced back in 2004. Only 1,270 units were ever produced and only 25 were supposed to became a Mirage GT. The bad news is that Gemballa already sold 23 units and the good news is that only 2 Mirage GT models are still available.
Each unit is powered by a 5.7-liter V10 engine that was upgraded from 612 hp to 670 hp and from 590 to 630 Nm of torque. Using a 6-speed manual transmission, the Gemballa Mirage GT is able to accelerate from 0 to 100 km/h (62 mph) in 3.7 seconds, while top speed is 335 km/h or 208 mph.
Meanwhile, the new body kit is made of carbon fiber and consists of a new aprons and a big rear spoiler. In addition, the Mirage GT gets a new exhaust system that resembles the jet engines and enhances the sound.
After it will sell the remaining Mirage GT models, Gemballa announced that it is already working on another limited-edition masterpiece, this time based on the new Porsche 918 Spyder. Just like the Mirage GT, Gemballa’s 918 Spyder will also see a limited production of just 25 units.
“The MIRAGE GT is a real collector’s item. This is attested to by the fact that these cars have lost hardly any of their value,“ saysGEMBALLA’s managing director Andreas Schwarz: “When the series is no longer being produced, the collector’s value is going to rise again. Many Arabian royals own such a car.“
