Gemballa takes on Enzo

2009-12-28 07:46
German tuner Gemballa may be better known for its work with Porsches, but see what it has produced with a tired old Ferrari Enzo...

Called the Gemballa MIG-U1, this is said to be a one-off model with details to follow at an "invitation only" showing in Dubai. Says a lot, doesn't it?

The brainchild of the Ilyas and Mustafa Galadari Group based in Dubai, ostensibly the Gemballa agents in those parts, the MIG-U1 is thankfully not finished in gold-plated carbon fibre.

However, a personal car of Mustafa Galadari, it is fitted with a completely new exhaust, unique front and rear bumpers and wing, new side sills and LED daytime running lights along with a few other embellishments.  

It also has the signature Gemballa roof-mounted air intake and black rims.

Cabin "improvements" include black and red quilted seats, two-tone floor mats and a video screen.

Subtle by Middle Eastern standards, we suppose...
