Gemballa is a tuning company based in Leonberg near Stuttgart, Germany, which was founded by and named after Uwe Gemballa in 1981 providing aftermarket parts and conversions mainly for Porsche. In the 1980s, Gemballa created the Avalanche based on the Porsche 911/930 (Turbo 911 slant nose) and the Cyrrus (convertible) as well as the Mirage that was similar to the Avalanche. The cars were unique with large, wide body kits, side strakes, upgraded wheels, interiors, gauges, paint, Hi-Fi audio systems, etc. Some vehicles even used cameras instead of mirrors, technology far ahead of its time. Audio company Pioneer used Gemballa vehicles in their advertisements and brochures for several years. The prices for these vehicles were often mentioned as being incredibly expensive for the time period at US $250,000-$375,000+. Robert Van Winkle, also known as Vanilla Ice, was a famous owner of Gemballa Porsches. A 600 bhp Gemballa model once held the lap record for road cars at the Nürburgring in the late 1990s, and again in 2001 when Wolfgang Kaufmann lowered it to 7:32,52min. It was since beaten by a Porsche Carrera GT, by less than a second.

This 2004 Porsche Cayenne Gemballa GT750 Aero 3 is brought to market by its one and only owner who, in 2003, saw a GT750 advertised and, despite wanting to buy that car, Gemballa had already secured a buyer and suggested he commission a car for himself. Our vendor then purchased a 2004 Porsche Cayenne Turbo and commissioned Gemballa to create this one of a kind GT750 Biturbo; a year and some 485,000 later, he took delivery of what the factory called 'The Beast'. Notwithstanding the significant Aero body kit and split rim alloy wheels, the engine tuning is carried through revised turbochargers, coolers and a large collection of engine components including pistons and seals, bringing the power to 750bhp and a claimed 1000ft/lb, enough to embarrass many a supercar on the autobahn. Our vendor has since returned to Gemballa for further upgrades including later light clusters and a 'detune' button for economy.... reducing power at a switch of a button to a mere 650bhp. The custom areas of this bespoke car include the trim with four Recaro bucket seat, full audio system including 5 screens (one reversing camera) and JL speaker system coupled with premium Genesis amplifiers and a fridge for good measure. Also supplied with a roof box in matching pearlescent white, other extras are simply too numerous to mention. The history file contains the original book pack with service stamps from Gemballa, amongst others, and an MoT certificate valid until June 2020.

This has to be one of the most outrageous but powerful and imposing cars on the road; a genuine, comfortable four-seater at a fraction of the original list price. Codenamed 'The Beast' and as impressive today as it was in 2004, this is a remarkable vehicle.
