Gemballa GTP 700 based on Porsche Panamera Turbo

That Porsche means the maximum of everything starting with luxury and performance, is something that anyone in the world knows. Well, the guys from Gemballa certainly know it too. Still, this hasn’t stopped them to pick up a Porsche and create a tuning package for it. And we are talking here about Porsche Panamera Turbo. The tuning package is named the GTP 700 and the upgraded vehicle has got to a maximum speed of 338.8 km/h (210.5 mph), becoming the quickest sedan in the world that weighs over two tones.

The Essen Motor Show was the event that hosted the official debut of the Porsche Panamera Turbo GTP 700 made by Gemballa. This took place not long ago, but despite this, the upgraded supercar has just established the speed record in the over two tons category of vehicles. The vehicle got a curb weight of 2,045 kg (4,508 lbs) and a total weight (including driver and fluids) of 2,225 kg (4,905 lbs).

Unlike many super sports cars, the luxury sports car is a fully fledged daily driver and touring vehicle for up to four people. The mass production Porsche Panamera Turbo is powered by a V8 4.8-liter twin-turbo that churns 520 HP (382 kW) in standard configuration. However, the engineers from Gemballa have discovered more resources in this engine, transforming it in such a way as to generate 700 HP (515 kW). The speed limit achieved by the car is of 210.5 mph (338.8 km/h).

As a reminder, the standard vehicle needs 3.9 seconds to reach 60 mph (96 km/h) or 3.7 seconds when equipped with the Sport Chrono package before getting to a maximum speed of 189 mph (304 km/h). The team at Gemballa also equipped the supercar with new lightweight alloy wheels, an aerodynamic package and a few new elements placed to refresh the inside cabin. Their Porsche Panamera needs 3.3 seconds to get from 0 to 62 mph (100 km/h) and 9.6 seconds to do the 0-124 mph (0-200 km/h) task, while the speedometer can go up to 184 mph (300 km/h) in 26.5 seconds. Well, the guys at Gemballa need to be congratulated on doing a very nice job.
