is it 550 or 650? cuz i have heard of a 650 but didnt know there was a 550 as well..but at the same time i think it stupid..for the upgraded price which is always 2x of the original car..its just plain dumb..if you consider Kleemann SL55K costs 240k euros now thats crazi more expensive than a murcielago and it can only go against the murcielago in straight line for a short dist..i dont know i am not too enthused with such crazi pricing for the performance..

but surely they make the car look even better..

Sorry, not familiar with gemballa. Do tell me. I looked up the gemballa website and from what it says there the kit consists of mostly cosmetic mods and some aerodynamic body mods. What is so special about that? But it looks like they do have engine and suspension mods not part of the kit.

yeah everything is seperate you buy engine and suspension mods if you are only interested in that and if you want more then the exterior and interior kit..

i dont know about special, but then how special is any tunner..

gemballa is as well known as hamman or RUF or Kleemann or Brabus..

They have a wild version of carrera GT i beleive..I dont know if someone got it done..but if I had the money I would have..

it costs like 1.8 mil and that is just the mods, you have to give your carrera gt with it.. some bad haah! but the machine would be one of a kind and would look sick..!!
