Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R

The 997 Porsche 911 Turbo was modified by Gemballa and turned into the Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R. To offer more power, the tuner increased the engine to 3.8 liters and replaced the stock turbochargers with Garret T035 units. Now the model is capable of delivering 850 horsepower and 690 lb. ft. of torque.

Gemballa`s most extreme conversion for the 997 Porsche 911 Turbo is the Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R. To increase the power, Gemballa has increased displacement to 3.8-liters and replaced the stock turbochargers with Garret T035 units. New heads, crankshaft, and upgraded connecting rods were added as well. The result is 850 horsepower and 690 lb-ft torque.

To handle all that power, Gemballa has added an H&R coilover suspension system, adjustable front and rear anti-sway bars, and 19-inch wheels with Yokohama AVS Sport tires.

The appearance of the GTR800 EVO-R is just as radical as its performance upgrades. Gemballa adds a new front and rear fascia, front hood, headlights, and a carbon fiber front splitter and rear wing.
