Official: Gemballa MIG-U1

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Gemballa, the well-known German tuner specialized in tuning Porsche cars decided that it is time to take on a new challenge and revealed a new customization program based on the Ferrari Enzo and called Gemballa MIG-U1.

The new program includes an all new aerodynamic kit consisting in a new front spoiler lip that generates an additional downthrust of up to 35 kilograms at the front axle but also a new rear spoiler that generates up to 85 kilograms more downthrust on the rear wheels.

In order to obtain the best results, the flap lowers, as soon as the car reaches a speed of 120 km/h. Also, Gemballa developed an ventilation- and cooling concept: the front and the back wheel-houses are supplied with cooling air in order to guarantee an optimal use of the high performance braking system; newly designed air exhaust ducts end in and on top of the rear skirt while their dimensions allow supply of an additional radiator.

Regarding the rear lights, the manufacturer says that these do not remain openly on the back and are cased and equipped with air ducts. The MIG-U1 grows broader by 80 millimetres at the front- and 100 millimetres at the back axle.

For everyday use, the German tuner offers an optional electro-hydraulic height-adjustment (HLS), which with the push of a buton, it can lift the body by 45 millimetres at the front- and rear axle and therefore allows driving over obstacles such as underground car park entrances and traffic ramps. To bring the car back on its normal height, you can push the same button or rech 80 km/h, because the MIG-U1 lowers itself to its original level.

The kit is completed by the forged wheels GEMBALLA GTR RACING, wrapped in high-performance wheels in the dimension 265/35 in the front and 335/30 at the rear.

Under the hood, the V12 engine was boosted with the help of an optimized motor management and an especially adjusted exhaust system to an impressive 700 hp (515 kW). Inside, the car offers new seats carrying the Gemballa MIG-U1 badges and a new high-end multimedia system offers a seven-inch touch screen, navigation, DVD changer and an iPod connection.

The 950-Watt amplifier operates the high frequency ranges in the cockpit front, the 165 millimetre large membrane on the door linings and the subwoofer between the seats. The Gemballa MIG-U1 will be manufactured in a limited edition of just 25 units, each individually adjusted which means there will not be any identical cars.
