Just How Fast Is The Gemballa GTP 720?

Tuning

Tuner claims this is the fastest Panamera on the planet.

Recently, German tuning firm Gemballa unveiled the GTP 720, a record-breakingPorsche Panamera-based monster that could put the Panamera Turbo to shame in nearly every category. Now, the company is releasing additional data and new pictures of the car, that now boasts a less controversialdesign. Gemballa has upgraded the stockcar's twin-turbo 4.8-liter V8, allowing it to churn out an insane 720horsepower. Compared to the Panamera Turbo, the GTP 720 also makes an additional188 lb-ft of torque.

With this power, Gemballa has managed to achieve a few new records withits manic sedan: As well as an electronically-controlled top speed of 211mph, the car can hit 62 mph in 3.2 seconds, shoot to 124 mph in 9.7seconds and blast to 187 mph in just 26.4 seconds. That represents respective 1,3, and 33.6 second improvements over the production car's acceleration. Infact, the car also broke a lap time record for its weight class at the Sachsenringtrack, making the round in just 1:37.08. And while the luxury tuner's choice ofexterior design is still somewhat underwhelming, we're sure that everythingwill be forgotten once you get behind the wheel.
