Report: Gemballa Releases 750 Horsepower ‘Mistrale’ Porsche Panamera

Report: Gemballa Releases 750 Horsepower ‘Mistrale’ Porsche Panamera

In true Gemballa fashion, the German Porsche tuner has just released details of its extreme ‘Mistrale’ transformation for the new 2010 Porsche Panamera.

Taking hints from the classic 911 design as well as from the company’s own Mirage GT (a modified Carrera GT), the Mistrale features a new front bumper with a gaping front air inlet. The new bumper also features a new carbon fiber lip, as well as a new vented hood to keep the big V8 engine cool under extreme operation. Gemballa has added wider fenders to help make room for a set of massive 22-inch wheels. Out back a new rear bumper with integrated diffuser also features four integrated exhaust pipes.

To further improve the performance of the Panamera, Gemballa offers a 6-piston front brake kit with massive 16.5-inch rotors and 4-piston calipers with 15-inch rotors behind.

Also available is reprogrammed unit for the air suspension that helps the Panamera sit 40mm (almost 2-inches) lower. There is also an available coilover suspension for more extreme performance.

And speaking of extreme performance, Gemballa will offer engine packages for the Panamera with output of up to 750hp – a 50 percent increase over the Panamera Turbo’s stock 500hp!

Official release after the jump:

GEMBALLA MISTRALE The new, fascinating GEMBALLA luxury limousine based on Porsche Panamera models

Right at the market introduction of the Porsche Panamera, GEMBALLA Automobiltechnik GmbH & Co. KG for the first time publishes images of the GEMBALLA MISTRALE and presents fascinating features. The design of the GEMBALLA luxury limousine is even more dynamic, more striking and significantly more exclusive than its serial counterpart. For perfect surface quality and custom-fit processing of the newly designed aerodynamics components, GEMBALLA mainly uses the ultra-light and high-strength material carbon.

Part of the dynamic front look is a far more sporty front skirt. Larger air inlets guarantee the optimal supply with fresh air for future performance increases. An integrated carbon lip and an elegantly formed bonnet with slotted ventilation ducts complete the lifting-force reducing front. A striking eye-catcher of the GEMBALLA MISTRALE and visual allusion to the classic 911-design are the extended front and rear fenders. A newly designed rear apron with integrated diffuser provides enough space for four end pipes of the sport exhaust system and seamlessly fits into the overall package.

But not only design and aerodynamics are refined by GEMALLA. Also the performance of the four-door automobile is significantly improved. A newly programmed air suspension module with extended setting range lowers the centre of gravity up to 40 millimetres. For especially ambitious customers, GEMBALLA offers a height-adjustable coilover suspension. In connection with the ultra-light 22-inch forged rims both versions render best vehicle control and also optimal road contact. For excellent deceleration values and perfect pedal control, GEMBALLA adds a high-performance brake system. 6-piston brake callipers with 420 millimetre brake discs at the front axle and 4-piston brake callipers with 380 millimetre brake discs at the back axle replace the serial components.

GEMBALLA – the specialist for high-end Porsche refinement and innovative engineer design plans further modifications, such as powerful performance enhancements up to 750 hp for different serial engines. And also in the interior, owner Uwe Gemballa leaves his distinctive mark with an innovative design and unsurpassable quality as usual.
