Gemballa GT Spider Bound for Geneva

Customized McLaren anyone?

Fans of exotic sports cars have a lot to look forward to at the Geneva motor show. One of the cars that will be unveiled the show is the Gemballa GT Spider. This car starts life as a McLaren MP4-12C Spider. Gemballa then puts on own aero package including a front bumper, spoiler, side skirts, and a rear valance.

The vehicle can be had with superlight 20 or 21-inch wheels, painted brake calipers, and a number of interior modifications. Those interior modifications include new instruments and Alcantara upholstery in the color of your choice. Since the vehicle starts as a McLaren, it uses the same engine as the McLaren MP4-12C Spider.

That means it has a 616 hp and 442 pound-foot of torque powerplant mated to a seven-speed dual clutch gearbox. The vehicle is rear-wheel drive and the modifications cost $62,278 on top of the purchase price of the McLaren, which is $260,750.
