1986 Gemballa Avalanche For Sale

On sale and finished in Pearlescent White with a Black Leather interior this super-rare, left hand drive Gemballa Avalanche was first registered in the UK in April 2018 and was originally supplied brand new to a dealer in Puerto Rico, USA in 1986.

The Porsche 930 Turbo may well have been one of the fastest and most highly regarded sports cars of the 1980's but a market for specialist tuners emerged during that time with RUF and Gemballa quickly making a name for themselves. Gemballa was founded in 1981 by Uwe Gemballa, an engineer who started out creating bespoke interiors before developing a strong interest in aerodynamics and associated aftermarket products. Gemballa soon turned his attention to producing complete cars based on Porsche 930's and quickly gained a reputation for outrageous designs combined with wild performance.

The Avalanche debuted in 1985 with a price tag of 390,000 DM (nearly $700,000 in 1989) and quickly became the wheels of choice for some very high-profile celebrities such as the rap-musician Vanilla Ice who immortalised the car in the lyrics of one of his songs - "Of course a Vanilla rides the groove like a Gemballa Porsche".

Each Avalanche was created by Gemballa with mostly bespoke body panels plus individual interiors filled with the latest technology for the time. Mechanical upgrades were completed by RUF with the cars being finished off by Gemballa to specific customer requirements.

Believed to be one of only 15 examples produced, this 1986 Avalanche was reputedly one of the last built and with RUF’s involvement with the project it is known that this Avalanche was fitted a RUF engine producing around 375 bhp plus a RUF-developed 5-speed manual transmission.

This Avalanche presents itself in original and excellent condition with less than 14,000 miles since new and represents an exceedingly rare opportunity to own a significant piece of automotive history from the 1980's.

Believed to be one of only 15 Avalanches produced by Gemballa
