The president and founder Uwe Gemballa continues his successful story with the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R and presented the face-lifted version of the current AVALANCHE-generation. With spectacular equipment, design and an auto body which has been broadened with Thyssen steel, lets you without words and touches the top of world sports car. But for Gemballa nothing is enough, the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R offers elaborate, supreme technology and with 650 hp it delivers an enormous top speed of 332 km/h that just complete the enormous pleasure of driving of the highest fastidiousness.

At first glance, the AVALANCHE shows an appropriate link with the greatest sports car league. The designed gull wing doors and the new front headlights from the Carrera GT, leave an amazing visual accent. The same applies for the powerful metal extensions which were specially produced in a Thyssen Group subsidiary and then directly welded to the body shell. The GEMBALLA technicians developed a custom-made bonnet and side skirts as well, but the front wings are replaced by a carbon version. Following the facelift of the current Porsche 911 induction engine models, GEMBALLA gives the AVALANCHE a new vision as well. The entirely re-designed front skirt is a part of this modernization. The integrated carbon front lip conveys the air to the large cooling slits and gives the car an even more lowered look.

The rear section of the AVALANCHE, also supported a makeover: the most significant feature is the use of LED tail lamps from the current Porsche 911. But this is not all; this is additionally enhanced by a new rear skirt. The integrated rear diffuser can either be selected with a varnish or in carbon fiber and offers space for the four end pipes of the sport exhaust system. Together with the carbon rear wing, it renders additional down thrust at the rear axle. A big accent was put on aerodynamic efficiency by engineering of the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R. To obtain a perfect design in perfect surface quality, that will reduce the lifting force, the body components were perfectly adjusted to each other.

Beside the amazing shape of the AVALANCHE, the GEMBALLA engine department also developed a powerful performance enhancement for the serial gearing. Camshafts and cylinder heads are mechanically fabricated in precision work. The engine makeover includes a racing crankshaft, a titanium connecting rod, forged pistons and racing turbo chargers. To provide the optimal air supply were designed an aluminum induction pipe and a carbon air box with sports air filter. Another splendid characteristic responsible for the sporty and powerful sound is the stainless steel, a high-performance exhaust system with the optimized racing headers.

At the moment, after so many extensive modifications, the super sports car has 650 hp / 478 kW at 6.200 rpm and 950 NM at 4.600 rpm. Thereby, the 4WD automobile accelerates from 0 to 100 km/h in only 3.4 seconds and reaches a top speed of 332 km/h.

If this is not enough, then the GEMBALLA-specialists offer even further engine types with performance enhancements up to 800 hp. A remarkable combination for best road handling and a striking appearance offers the wheels and running gear.

The optimal compromise between comfort and control are offered by the wheel/tires of the AVALANCHE. The multi-part and especially light aluminum wheels are delivered in size 9.0Jx20 with tires measuring 245/30 ZR 20 for the front axle and 1.5Jx20 with 325/25 ZR 20 tires at the rear axle.

The AVALANCHE cannot be confused with any other sports car because of its high-performance braking system which was especially devised for the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R, can be easily recognized by its red-painted brake calipers. The optimal deceleration and perfect gas pedal response is rendered by enlarged 6-piston brake calipers in connection with discs measuring 405 millimeters at the front axle and 4-piston brake calipers with 380mm-discs at the rear axle.

To confer a perfect going, the running gear has been thoroughly modified. To correspond to the highest requirements, the new coil over kit was especially adjusted. Four individually adjustable rebound dampers allow an individual fine tuning, sport stabilizer and strut braces render additional torsion stiffness and therefore improve road handling. VIP lounge with motor sports atmosphere, GEMBALLA completely re-designs the interior of the AVALANCHE and turns it into a VIP lounge with motor sports atmosphere. For a more luxury aspect the serial lining is replaced by most precious leather. The GEMBALLA aluminum pedals splendidly shine in the foot well and perfectly go with the carbon fiber components of the interior set. The technical highlight is the full-size airbag sports steering wheel measuring 340 millimeters in diameter. The sports seats type POLE POSITION offer extra seating stability.

GEMBALLA – the specialist for high end refinement and innovative interior design offers the AVALANCHE GTR 650 EVO-R from 350,000 € (net, including basic automobile Porsche 997 Turbo) this is the price set for the Avalanche by Gemballa, a price which, thankfully, includes the base vehicle.
