…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Iconic Motors GTR?

Iconic Motors GTR 1

The Iconic Motors GTR is the Cobra that Carroll Shelby would probably build today if he had the time and the wealthy client list.

For $600,000, buyers get a carbon fiber supercar that features an 800 horsepower, 420-cubic-inch V8, a very beautiful/custom interior, a display with “military strike fighter” technology, and a “computerized gas cap that slides open like the glass on a moon roof”.

…It’s Tuner Tuesday: Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R?

Gemballa Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R

Gemballa is known to tune a Porsche into something else entirely, but their Avalanche GTR 800 EVO-R (aka a 911 Turbo on steroids) raises the bar even further than their usual.

How much further?

850 HP and 690 ft-lbs of torque further, thanks to the pair of Garret T035 turbos strapped onto the enlarged 3.8L engine. GT3-R heads, a machined crank and new connecting rods also help.

It wouldn’t be a Gemballa though if they decided to leave the exterior alone, so they transformed the usually sleek and svelte 911 body into a menacing monster; with new rear fenders complete with larger air intakes covering the rear wheels, a new lower front fascia to add extra grill, a vented hood to let some of the air out, GT headlights, a dual-wing rear spoiler, 19-inch alloys, and a rear apron to cover the four new exhaust tips.

In case you didn’t quite get the message the first time, Gemballa would like to remind you: Subtlety is overrated.
