Superlight for a supercar.
The Porsche Carrera GT is one of the biggest headline-grabbing supercars to come from the German automaker since it was first introduced. It’s notoriously difficult to drive and is packed with all of the latest and greatest technology that Porsche gained from motorsport at the time. Gemballa was quick to create a limited run of 25 of their own modified versions called the Mirage GT that had even more power, aerodynamics, and ewxclusiveness.
And one of the Gemballa Mirage GTs got taken to the next level in terms of performance and styling with a new set of HRE P104 forged wheels.
The factory Porsche Carrera GT was tuned, tweaked, and turned up during its transformation into the Gemballa Mirage GT. A full exhaust system opens up the mighty 5.7-liter V-10 engine while other goodies helped push output to a whopping 670 horsepower. Thankfully, optimized aerodynamics help to create more downforce for better stability and a modified clutch allows for easier everyday driving.
But this owner wasn’t finished. A new set of HRE P104 monoblock forged wheels were installed to keep weight to a minimum. Each P104 wheel draws from the brand’s extensive motorsports experience to create a high-strength, durable, and lightweight construction with a style that matches the design of the exclusive Gemballa Mirage GT.
The HRE P104 monoblock wheels are made from aerospace-quality 6061-T6 forged aluminum alloy and feature side cuts and backpad pocketing to shed weight. For this application on the Gemballa Mirage GT, the HRE P104 wheels were given a slick Satin Black finish and center-locking mechanisms to accommodate the factory setup. A wide, staggered 9.5 x 19 front and 12.5 x 20 setup helps to put all of those 670 ponies down just a tad bit easier.
Armed with a new set of HRE P104 forged wheels, this Gemballa Mirage GT was ready to carve up the canyon.
