If someone wants to say that the current Porsche 911 Turbo is lacking for power, than you’ll find hundreds of reasons to prove him wrong. But, just because it is really powerful, doesn’t mean there can’t be other carmakers who will try to take the throne. The latest creation of German tuning shop Gemballa third-generation Avalanche, is turning out 808 horsepower and 700 lb-ft of torque from a turbocharged flat-six engine. Oh, and it’s bright purple and has a three-tier rear wing that looks big enough to live in.
Gemballa is known for a lot of things- Nürburgring lap records, for example – but subtlety isn’t one of them. All of the company’s current offerings are either Porsche or McLaren models that have been worked over inside and out with new body panels, wings, and interior touches to compliment a hefty boost in power. It’s not a look for everyone, but you can’t say the company doesn’t try.
