Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition Boasts 670 HP

How often do we have the chance to see a good-looking aftermarket Carrera GT? Pretty rare that's for sure but, once a certain tuner unveils such a high-performance models, it's surely fairly special. One of these vehicles is also the recently-unveiled Gemballa Mirage GT Carbon Edition which, just like its name suggests, is full of carbon-made parts, bringing a major advantage in both engine performance and aerodynamics.

Unfortunately, only a little is known at this point, as Gemballa released only a few details regarding the vehicle. But we do know the car produces a maximum power of 670 HP combined with 630 Nm of torque. Maximum speed is rated at 335 km/h (208.2 mph), with the 0 to 100 km/h sprint in 3.7 seconds and 0-200 km/h in 9.7 seconds.

Well, that's almost all we know about the car but, taking into account the array of carbon-made parts, we may be able to figure out a couple of more details. For example, the vehicle is probably featuring ceramic brakes, which bring a boost in both the performance figures and overall weight. In addition, carbon aerodynamic elements, such as the rear spoiler and the side sills contribute to both aerodynamics and weight, thus improving the vehicle performance.

What's interesting is that the abundance of carbon elements doesn't improve the engine performance as much as you may expect (the standard Carrera GT produces 612 horsepower) so, just like the previous Gemballa creations, this new one mostly relies on the eye-catching body kit. Same with the 0 - 100 km/h sprint, as the base model was rated at 3.9 seconds, compared to this aftermarket variant with 3.7 seconds.
