Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS redoes Porsche Cayenne

Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS
To stand out from the crowd, a Porsche Cayenne is not enough any more. The ultimate customization would have to be the unique Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS.

There is only a little connection left between the Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS and the Porsche Cayenne Turbo. In order to meet the sports car’s increased requirements in terms of light construction and torsional stiffness, Uwe Gemballa’s team optimized nearly the entire auto body. For this reason, the ultra-strength and especially light material carbon is mainly used. A front apron extended with integrated aero lip generates more downthrust at the front axle and in connection with the also extended rear section it renders the typical elongated sports car look. Extensive air inlets suck in additional fresh air for the engine, oil-cooler and air intercooler. An air duct system even brings the air to the front brakes. On the other hand, the engine heat is effectively diverted by air ducts in the also newly designed hood. The special highlight of the hood is its fusion with the front wings and the new, converse opening mechanism. Compared to the serial Cayenne, the hood now opens forward and therefore allows a better access to the engine.

The outstanding eye-catchers of the Tornado flanks are the body extensions which are fitted all the way from the front to the rear. They make space for the extremely broad 12-inch rims and in connection with the new side skirts they render a dynamic look.

The aerodynamics specialists also extensively optimized the rear section. The rear skirt has been extended and for additional downthrust, a race diffuser has been added. A rear spoiler with carbon flaps perfects the aerodynamic overall package.

When designing the body kit, Gemballa does not leave any doubt that the Tornado 750 GTS is a full-blooded sports car. In order to emphasize this claim, Gemballa adds designer characteristics which are typical for sports cars: Round double tail lights and four end-pipes of the high performance exhaust system which have been integrated in the rear skirt, confirm the powerful appearance.

The result is 750 hp at 6400 rpm and a maximum torque of 774 lb-ft at 3200 rpm. The 4×4 accelerates from zero to 100 mph in only 4.5 seconds and with a maximum velocity approaching 190 mph, the Gemballa Tornado 750 GTS is significantly more powerful than its stock counterpart.

Running gear and wheels for adequate grip and agile handling
The TORNADO was equipped with an adjustable coilover kit which has been especially adjusted to the enormous performance potential. This allows lowering the car by up to three inches and therefore permits a variable adjustment of the setup to every individual driver and scope of use.

The multi-part, especially light GT SPORT forged rims are available in 12Jx22 with tires measuring 335/25 Z 22.

The high-performance braking system with the punched and slit XXL discs guarantees optimal deceleration values. In order to provide the perfect gas pedal response, the Gemballa technicians used 6-piston brake calipers at the front axle and 4-piston brake calipers at the rear axle.

Gemballa also gave the Tornado a unique interior. The four single sports seats which offer all passengers a unique seating experience when driving winding roads are another highlight. The hand-holds which are embedded in the rear center console provide further support.

The new front center console with the lifted gearbox and the Data Control System renders a real cockpit feeling. The harmonically integrated display presents driving data such as acceleration, cross-acceleration and deceleration values. Gemballa also integrates rear-seat entertainment components and combines these with finest materials, such as high-quality leather, carbon-fiber or aluminum.

The German company is offering the GEMBALLA TORNADO GTS in a limited edition of 50 cars for $500,000 each.
