With the new Gemballa GTR 650 Avalanche, based on the Porsche 997 Carrera, the German Porsche conversion specialist Gemballa created the dream car for the 2006 sports car year. With this refined, ultra-sporty and equally reliable automobile, Gemballa continued in its very own great tradition of sports car construction. The Gemballa Avalanche, Mirage and Cyrrus models from the 80’s earned their legendary reputation for a reason.

The performance of the 2006 dream car is already the first attention-getter. The Gemballa GTR 650 Avalanche’s motor boasts a breathtaking 650 bhp. Part of the motor’s conversion by the Gemballa engineers included eliciting an impressive 605 lb-ft of torque, guaranteed to bring a satisfied smile to the driver’s lips already at 4,800 rpm. In comparison, the standard Porsche 997 model features maximum 295 lb-ft of torque at 4,600 rpm. The difference puts the GTR 650 Avalanche’s sprinting qualities in a class all their own. The GTR 650 Avalanche reaches the 124 mph mark in only 11.2 seconds, and the top speed is 208 mph.

But peak performance wasn’t the only item at the top of the Gemballa engineers’ spec sheet. The Porsche conversion specialists placed just as much emphasis on the safety and durability of the Avalanche. Titanium piston rods, an intake system specially developed by Gemballa, three intercoolers and a special turbo configuration ensure Gemballa pleasure for a long time to come. And its lucky owner only has to share this pleasure with one passenger, because for safety reasons, from 650 bhp the GTR 650 Avalanche is only available as a two-seater.

Massive eight-piston brake calipers and accordingly sized 380 millimeter diameter perforated disk brakes make sure the Avalanche also slows to a safe stop. The GTR 650 Avalanche sits on 19” wheels with tires sizes of 235 (front) and 315 (rear). The new 20” racing wheels are also optionally available, with tire sizes of 245 (front) and 325 (rear). For the particularly ambitious driver who would like to push the GTR 650 Avalanche’s envelope, for example on the ‘Nordschleife’, Gemballa also offers an optional roll bar.

The new Avalanche’s body and interior are equally as exclusive and unique as its driving performance and safety components. All of its add-on components are made of carbon. Fenders and sidewalls are all metal. And the future owner of the GTR 650 Avalanche can also look forward to Gemballa sport seats, a Gemballa sport steering wheel and aluminum pedals.
