Gemballa has finally released details of the ‘Tornado` Cayenne GTS, a concept of which was displayed in early 2008. A limited production of only 50 of these SUVs will be made in either GTS or GTR trim with three different stages of tuning. GTR is strictly exclusive performance-tuned. Engineers stripped the GTR of most of its luxury items as well as the 4WD mechanism to make it a RWD SUV. In the process they shaved about 250kg off the vehicle`s mass.
Gemballa was inspired by the Porsche Carrera GT supercar in creating the Tornado GTS`s look. The body kit features a carbon fiber bonnet, larger air intakes, five-spoke alloy wheels, an integrated rear diffuser and new taillights. New adjustable seats, a panoramic sunroof and a custom centre console make for a unique interior look.
Engine modifications extend to the GTS and GTR with three levels of tune: 542hp (404kW), 641hp (478kW) or 740hp (552kW) depending on customer preferences. Standard Porsche GTSs produce 405hp (298kW). Other performance changes are the installation of a high-flow exhaust system, upgrades to the ECU and new intercoolers
