Since 2006, Gemballa has been building custom interpretations of the Porsche Carrera GT supercar, making it perhaps the foremost Carrera GT tuner in the world. For its latest iteration, Gemballa has decided to relax the power output and focus on a decisively seductive gold finish.

Some of Gemballa's GTs have put out as much as 750hp (560kW), but the Gold Edition is satisfied with 670hp (500kW) on tap. That's still about 50hp (40kW) more than the stock Carrera GT, however, and with 465lb-ft (630Nm) of torque it's sure to be a fun ride in any gear.

Gemballa's claimed performance stats back that up: 0-62mph (100km/h) takes 3.7 seconds, and it'll hit 124mph (200km/h) in just 9.7. Both of those figures shave two tenths of a second from the stock times, and the power boost takes top speed up to at least 208mph (335km/h).

Beyond the power mods, the Gold Edition adds lots of exposed carbon fiber accents, a gold-on-white color scheme and custom alloy wheels. A hydraulic height-adjustable coilover kit is also supplied to improve handling, as well as protect the car when any steep bumps need to be conquered.

Inside, there’s a mix of Alcantara and leather trim as well as carbon-fiber and aluminum accents.
