Gemballa, known for extensive and well-done Porsche conversions, are
now presenting a Ferrari. And, it isn't one of the ordinary production
models, but the all-out limited super car Enzo! The company developed a
complete aerodynamic package. Downforce and cooling is claimed to be
enhanced by it. At least looks have changed significantly.
The standard model already comes with real super car styling, but the
body kit makes it appearing even more aggressive. Most striking things
are a huge rear spoiler with an adjustable flap and an air duct on the
roof. Experts might recognise that the nose is extended too, besides
additional air in- and outlets. Also the tail lights are no longer on
top of the rear's upper edge.
Matching the uncompromising approach of the Italian racing car sculpture,
the components are made from real carbon. An electro-hydraulic height
adjustment lifts the car to overcome obstacles. This optional feature
resets itself when 80kph is being reached, but it can be re-lowered by
the push of a button as well.
Alloys of the sizes 10x19 and 13x20 inch fill out the wheel houses. At
the front, rims have got 265/35 tyres. The ones at the rear bear 335/30
rubber socks. Engine control and exhaust system has been adjusted thanks
to which the Enzo's V12 now produce 700hp. As usual with Gemballa
conversions of this kind, the center console is redesigned.
It features a nameplate, but apart from this, it's not significantly
different to the standard solution. Some parts and the steering wheel
are covered with suede while a multi-media system provides entertainment
and enables navigating. Even an iPod connection is on board. The offering
is limited to 25 units. Each one will be individually adjusted.
After 'Mirage' and 'Tornado', Gemballa once again chose a warplane's
name for a conversion. In the Enzo's case they felt back to the one of
the legendary Russian fighter jet MIG. But it's also a hommage to one of their
dealers in UAE who has got the same initials, they say. Concerning
prices, however, they keep their lips closed.
Is this a new record? Only 25 cars are intended to be produced, but there's a
micro page for the thing! It provides further technical data and details.
Even a colour selector is included. So get there, have a look at it and
