That’s right, the Avalanche 4×4 is a mid-engined supercar boasting over 800 horsepower capable of accelerating from 0-62 mph in under 2.5-seconds and do 0-124 mph in 6.5 seconds on various terrain.

This isn’t the only thing happening at Gemballa, the world renowned southern German refinement and tuning company, as they announced today that its business areas will be divided into three separate divisions. The development and production of the first own Gemballa Hypercar will be done in the Hypercar Division (HD); the Luxury Customization Division (LCD) groups together the previous areas of vehicle refinement, performance enhancements, limited small series and one-offs; and the Gemballa Classics Division (CD) will now be responsible for the maintenance and restoration of classic Gemballa vehicles.

First and foremost, we will continue to focus on customizing and increasing the performance of Porsche models, but we are also open to other brands. The prototype of the Gemballa Avalanche 4.2 RS based on the Porsche 991, which was presented at the Geneva Motor Show in 2017, is now to be launched this year in an exclusive small series based on the Porsche 991 and 992. The performance data will outshine all comparable vehicles. In 2016, we already discussed the development of a 4×4 variant of the Porsche Cayenne as the Gemballa Tornado 4×4 and the Porsche 911 as the Gemballa Avalanche 4×4,” said Steffen Korbach, owner and CEO of Gemballa.
