Gemballa MIG-U1 gets more power, new interior and aero mods
14 January 2010

Renowned Porsche tuner Gemballa has turned its attentions to the Ferrari Enzo.

The MIG-U1 is powered by an uprated V12 and features a raft of aerodynamic modifications. Power is lifted from the Enzo's 650bhp to 691bhp.

Features include a front skirt with a splitter, which Gemballa says generates a further 35kg of downforce. An optional electro-hydraulic adjustment system lifts the front skirt by 45mm to help clear speed humps. There is also a rear flap which lowers itself at 75mph to improve aerodynamic efficiency.

The car is 80mm wider up front and 100mm broader at the back as compared to an Enzo.

Special cooling ducts help keep the brakes cool, while the engine breathes through inlets mounted behind the doors and on the roof.

Inside, the car has technology never available in the Enzo, including sat-nav, a DVD changer, iPod connectivity, a seven-inch touch screen and a 950-watt stereo system.

Gemballa only plans to produce 25 MIG-U1s, and has promised potential buyers that each car will slightly different from the others.

Nice. When do you test it?

Deary deary me. Surely this is a tasteless joke? And they seriously plan to destroy 25 of the 349 built? I am quite convinced there is a running joke with the german modifiers to see what nonsense they can get publised in magazines.

Ferrari officially built 400 examples - 399 originally planned plus one extra car auctioned for charity.

However I do agree the car is vile and any buyer who wastes an Enzo deserves all he (or she) gets.

These types of car are irrelevant, a controversial statement maybe, but you'll never see one, not even at special car events/shows, their sold to people with so much cash they don't know what to do with it, i mean mouses at the ready, how many times in your everyday lifes have we seen any of the current crop of jaw droppers?, right, when before this was the last time?, exactly, unless you live in a large city the chances of seeing an Enzo or a Pagani are remote,know what the most common supercar is?, answers on this forum and i'll tell you if your right, ok?

Is this not the sort of car that Max Power should be previewing rather than Autocar? It's a mess!

Ferrari should sue Gemballa for ruining the greatest supercar ever! Damn Germans! (A stereo system in a striped-out, track focused hypercar???)

They forgot the most important modification... winter tyres!
