The Gemballa Porsche Turbo GT550

Is this the Porsche 911 to end all Porsches - 3.6 seconds to 100 km/h and on to a top speed of 318 km/h. It reaches 200 km/h in 11.9 seconds!

German Porsche tuner Gemballa has announced a new kit for the Porsche 911 Turbo called the Turbo GT 550.

Designed for the new 997 model, it provides increased aerodynamics and a boost to 410 kW, with 780 Nm of torque ensuring super driveability.

The Turbo GT 550 requires less than 3.8 seconds to accelerate to 100 km/h, or 3.6 seconds with overboost.

A front spoiler reduces lift on the front axle, while new side skirts maintain design consistency.

Discreet air inlets help to cool the tyres and brakes, and the rear wing has been significantly modified from the production version.

It features openings at the bottom to supply the turbocharged engine with additional air, plus a large main spoiler to create downforce for the rear axle.

There are also special 20 inch light alloy wheels.
