Gemballa can be a bit too outrageous when it comes to tuning Porsches, and its latest package only proves that it never ceases to surprise its clients. Speaking of which, Gemballa introduces the GTR 8XX Evo-R BiTurbo tuning kit with a high dosage 828 hp. The tuning house made this exclusively for the already powerful Turbo and Turbo S Porsche 911s and according to them, the Evo-R can accelerate in 2.3 seconds at 62 mph (100 km/h) before hitting the quarter mile in 7.5 seconds at 124 mph (200 km/h).
Overly impressed? Well, what they did to come up with such monstrosity is they added some larger valves and reinforced connecting rods to the 911’s 3.8-liter biturbo flat-six engine. The special tuning package also includes the installation of new turbochargers to provide an added boost, including an updated exhaust system and a few modifications to the intake system to handle all that extra power. To ensure that everything works accordingly, Gemballa has made some changes on the 911’s gearbox and ECUs as well.
Interested Porsche 911 owners can avail this new package for more or less $59,000 or 49,800 euros which could already afford you a brand new Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat by the way. Say, if the Hellcat packs 707 hp, and the Porsche 911 costs a little over 190,000 USD, which one would you buy instead? The package does not even include interior modifications or any upgrades for the wheels and brakes but they do offer personalization to that extent. Also, Gemballa’s claimed performance figures are quite really impressive, making it even harder for anyone to decide.
Either way, the Porsche 911 Turbo and Turbo S current models have 540 hp and 580 hp respectively. The all-wheel drive with a seven–speed dual clutch transmission can accelerate in 2.6 seconds at 60mph with a claimed top speed of 205mph. The new 911 Turbo S Exclusive Series meanwhile has raised the output by 598 hp (446 kW). We anticipate it will fetch at least $300,000. That’s the price that comes with basically the most potent 911 Turbo S which happens to be limited to only five hundred examples.
For us, if you already have a Porsche 911 Turbo S either in coupe or cabriolet version but want to make the most out of its flat-six 3.8-liter biturbo engine, Gemballa’s GTR 8XX Evo-R package will certainly make a good choice. And for those who want their Porsches to not look like all the other Porsches, Gemballa offers a wide range of body tweaks that will surely earn a second look from other motorists.
