Gemballa Mirage GT Matt Blue Edition

So it goes like this: Company founder Uwe Gemballa goes missing last February not longer after he arrived on a business trip to South Africa. In September, his body was found wrapped in plastic in a shallow grave near Pretoria. While the killer has been caught, convicted, and sentenced to 20 years in prison, Uwe Gemballa's tuning firm was left with financial difficulties and the tragic loss of its founding father.

Now that some time has passed, the they have reorganized with new management and is back in the business of performing some of the best Porsche tuning in the world. Starting things off slowly, the tuner has just released details on its Mirage GT Matt Blue Edition. Based off the Porsche 980 Carrera GT, it's quite similar to the Matt Black Edition that was released in 2009. It has 650 hp and can go from 0 to 62 mph in 3.7 seconds and has a top speed of 208 mph.

Although Gemballa is often criticized for going overboard with their body kits, they've managed to keep the flamboyance down this time, with new body parts on the front, back and sides. The interior and engine bay also receive a white and contrasting flat blue color scheme along with Gemballa badges.
