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 2006 Porsche Cayenne Gemballa Twin Turbo GT750 Aero is brought to market by our client in Oman, 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. Having covered 160,000 km with all services having been fulfilled by Porsche main dealers. A full leather interior with refrigerator and double monitor surrounds the four seat configuration and all parts are modified by Gemballa and original as it left their factory. Conversions to the GT 750 are rumored o be in the region of 450,000 euros and this in our vendors words has had no expense spared in commissioning or maintenance.

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 2006, this is a remarkable vehicle. Consignor Mathew Priddy
