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!
