Gemballa details plans for 'state-of-the-art' hypercar 2020

German tuning company Gemballa has launched a fundraiser for the hypercar, which is expected to be revealed in prototype form early next year.

Drawing on its experience in tuning McLaren and Porsche models, tuning studio Gemballa has revealed the expected look and specification of a prototype that – if it materializes – will be the first custom model it has built.

The hypercar will use "state-of-the-art driving and aero technology" to deliver a 0-62 mph acceleration time of less than 2,5 seconds and a 0-124 mph time of 6.5 seconds. Initially, this will produce a clean internal combustion engine. However, hybrid and electric powertrains should potentially follow. There may also be the option of a manual transmission.

Gemballa appears to be focusing on the petrol car right now. CEO Stefan Korbach commented: “We are now concentrating on building one of the latest pure sports cars, a modern classic with outstanding looks and performance. Gemballa's clean car needs fuel and sound. Not all new trends are cool.”

The car was last reported on by Gemballa in 2010 when the company's founder and boss, Uwe Gemballa was killed in South Africa. The firm was then reformed until Korbach took the helm in 2015.
