Gemballa Mirage GT Matt Edition: The Porsche Carrera GT Finally Gets a Suit That Fits
Porsche tuner GEMBALLA has been taking quite a few passes lately at customizing the superlative Porsche Carrera GT and none have really knocked us off our feet or done this car true justice. First out of the starting blocks was the GEMBALLA Mirage GT Carbon Edition with its white and black color scheme and carbon-fiber everywhere humanly possible. Ho hum… Then came the GEMBALLA Mirage GT Gold Edition, a car that would make conspicuous consumption connoisseurs the world over very proud… But now we have the GEMBALLA Mirage GT Matt Edition, a stellar exotic that we would be proud to park in our driveway. The guts are still the same as they are in the other models using a modified version of Porsche’s V10 engine rated at 670 hp, with 3.7-second runs from 0-to-60 mph and a nut of 208 mph.
We’ve seen the GEMBALLA Mirage GT Matt Edition offered in matte black with blue or red interior and exterior accents as well as a matte gun metallic finish with yellow trim. But our guess is that for the additional $350,000+ you’ll pay along with roughly $440,000 for the base Carrera GT, GEMBALLA will probably hook you up with whatever combo your heart desires. If it was me, I’d grab the one with the matte black paint job with red highlights.
In any case, this company has finally found a winning combination of performance and aesthetic enhancements that really take the stellar Porsche Carrera GT to another level. This isn’t the last variation we’ll see from GEMBALLA as this is a pretty popular car for them to tweak. As it currently stands they have like 5 different iterations. Since the Carrera GT is no longer manufactured by Porsche and, consequently, scarce in the marketplace, we just wonder where GEMBALLA keeps finding a steady supply of base models for their Mirage GT editions.
