The Gemballa Avalanche GT2 550 Evo

If the Porsche's 911 Turbo isn't fast enough for you German car tuner Gemballa might just have the solution.

Meet the Gemballa Avalanche GT2 550 Evo, which is based on the 911 Turbo.

Gemballa has boosted power from 353kW to 415kW. This results in a 0-100km/h sprint of an amazing 3.4 seconds. It does the 0-200km/h dash in 10.8 seconds, while top speed is 315km/h.

Complementing the engine upgrade is a striking bodykit which oozes of sportiness.

The Gemballa Porsche comes with 20-inch wheels. There is also lightweight suspension components and adjustable stabilisers and dampers.

Otherwise the car is still pretty much the same as the standard 911 Turbo, which means drive from the 3.6-litre twin-turbo flat-six is channeled to all four wheels by Porsche's all-wheel-drive system.
