The Porsche specialists from Gemballa have revealed their latest upgrade package for the Porsche Carrera GT, called the Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition. The released details on the Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition Porsche Carrera GT are slim, the tuner revealing only a few numbers. The Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition Porsche Carrera GT has increased power to 670 HP and 630 NM of torque. This means the 0 to 62 mph time drops and the maximum speed gets higher.
The name ‘Carbon Edition’ can only mean that Gemballa has put the Carrera GT on a serious diet through extensive use of carbon fiber parts and ceramic brakes. Although, that mere 0.2 seconds improvement in acceleration doesn’t necessarily jive with an exceptionally high weight reduction.
Unfortunately, only a little is known at this point, as Gemballa released only a few details regarding the vehicle. But we do know the car produces a maximum power of 670 HP combined with 630 Nm of torque. Maximum speed is rated at 335 km/h (208.2 mph), with the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 3.7 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 9.7 seconds.
Well, that’s almost all we know about the car but, taking into account the array of carbon-made parts, we may be able to figure out a couple of more details. For example, the vehicle is probably featuring ceramic brakes, which bring a boost in both the performance figures and overall weight.
Part of the brief was to make a car that is easy to drive, as well as good looking, and so that ceramic clutch Porsche spent so much time developing went in the bin to be replaced with a tried and trusted racing number. The bodykit was designed in Stuttgart University’s wind tunnel to help plant the car at higher speeds and the suspension, although it’s fully adjustable, was actually set softer than the factory car when we drove it to get rid of the knife edge handling the Carrera GT is known for.
It’s claimed that it will also do 0–100 km/h (62mph) in 3.7 seconds (Stock 3.9) 0-200 km/h (124mph) in 9.7 seconds (Stock 9.9). We suspect that this Mirage will be lighter than the other through the use of Carbon Fibre and Ceramic Brakes.
