2008 Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R
First launched in 2006, the Gemballa Avalanche was a visual and performing sensation. Not resting on their laurels, the company has now decided to launch an even more outrageous version called the GTR 800 EVO-R.
This new model is the result of extreme tuning that takes the Flat-6 turbocharged engine to 850 bhp. New Garret T035 turbochargers help produce this power along with GT3-R cylinder heads and a whole new bottom end.
To match this power, Gemballa has showed no restraint in designing a radical body kit. From the front, the much larger air intakes dominate the fascia while new front projector-beam headlights stand out like a sore thumb.
A huge side scoop is accented with two-tone paint–in this case white on black. The theme is extended to the front hood, roof and double vane rear wing. The whole package is much wider to accommodate Yokohama AVS Sport tires and custom 19 inch wheels.
Suspension and braking systems get a comprehensive upgrade. H&R help the former with their adjustable coil-overs while Gemballa source their front brakes from an unnamed source.
With this type of performance we expect to hear of a more powerful Gemballa Mirage in the near future.
