PORSCHE GEMBALLA MIRAGE GTDate: 2017-11-06
Now, this is a slightly different look from Porshe but, I’m sure we can agree, it's definitely something to look at. Mirage is a name derived from the French word “illusion” however the GEMBALLA MIRAGE GT is very real, it is a limited edition series of only 25 very special cars based on the legendary 980 Carrera GT.
Its hard to deny that this is a unique and highly desirable handcrafted sports car. Of course, because its limited edition, each Mirage GT is made specifically for its owner. The owner can also expect 670HP and a car that goes 0-100 is 3.7 seconds, reaching a top speed of 335km/h. The Mirage GT components are produced in pure carbon fibre, designed for even better performance and enhanced cooling. The Mirage GT uses the same 5.7-litre V10 as the standard Carrera GT but the difference is the added horsepower – exactly 40 horsepower more. So if you don’t mind paying $780 000, the Gemballa Mirage GT can be yours, that's if you can get your hands on one though.
I have to admit that there is a downfall to the Mirage GT’s exquisite booty, and that is that you can’t actually see out the back, there is a rearview mirror present, but it has been said to be completely useless. Fortunately, there is a handy camera that activates when the car's gearbox is put into reverse, thankfully there's little need to know whats at the back of you when you are going forward.
