Under The Hood Modifications
The upgrades under the hood were by no means minimal. Gemballa attached a custom air intake system and upgraded the stainless-steel exhaust as well as revamped the ECU, which produced an additional 58bhp from the Carrera’s 5.7-litre V10 engine. That boosted the thing to a roaring 670bhp and 464lb ft of torque. Now, the GT shoots from 0-62mph in 3.7 seconds and can hit a top speed of 208 mph.
Those more interested in what others can view will be happy to know this Carrera GT received some serious upgrades. Gemballa created five-spoke wheels to help the car’s ceramic composite brakes cool down faster. They created a custom bodykit, bonnet, roof scoop and skirt. They also added gold accents to the rear wing, wheels, air intakes, and mirrors. Inside, the gold continues across door handles, the gear shifter, the steering wheel, and the infotainment system.
Here’s the thing about this particular super car, it has basically everything high end buyers are looking for, especially those who love soccer. It was owned by a top-notch player who was a star in Spain, Italy, and England, not to mention his home country of Cameroon. Furthermore, only 25 of these Porsche Carrera Gold Edition Mirage GTs were ever built and there’s only 4,000 miles on it. So if you want a ride like this it’s going to cost you, with current estimates being between $840,000 and $960,000.
