What does /o/ think of Gemballa?
>>26293474They made this car.https://youtu.be/72sIKyuQbgc
>borrow money from the mob>spend it on tuning Carrera GTs tasteless Mansory style, blow and hookers>get disappeared in some thirdworld shitholeTop marketing strategy.
>>26293457The spoiler is neat
>>26293457I don't, but that's not a totally unattractive render.
>>26293613Not a render, anon.https://youtu.be/LWQTnw_0Qzc
>>26293620in that case it's pretty cool, good to see something that looks good make it into production
>>26293457I know how they butchered the Carrera GT. Pulled a sneaky on normies by putting on a body kit and straight pipes then marketed stock performance numbers as improvements from their “modifications”. Took the pinnacle of German automotive engineering from that era and riced it out.
>>26294067Do you know how much more downforce a Mirage GT generates? All while keeping the same top speed.
They used to be peak Cocaine Cool.Fell to shit when real tuners like Sportec, 9ff, Manthey actually made cars better & faster rather than just blingy.
>>26294117Don't like the Mirage GT?
>>26294125I'm not from the Arabian Peninsula
>>26294129Alright then. Personally I'm not a blind find of Porsche body mods, but I think you're hard pressed to find a bad-looking Gemballa.
>>26293457the games that used Gemballa to skirt Porsche licensing red tape were usually pretty fun so I guess they're alright
>>26293457Gemballa 993 is a beaut.
>>26293457Costs more money than Ill ever have in all my life so who cares?
>>26294137>I think you're hard pressed to find a bad-looking Gemballa.
>>26294327Why does anyone talk about McLaren, Lamborghini, or Koenigsegg? They’re cool cars.
>>26294330Looks cool. Looks like a modernized cross between a Ferrari F40 & an Enzo. Don’t understand why you’d dislike this.
>>26294341See an optometrist.
>>26293485>Gemballa: hey can I copy your homework?>Corvette: ya just change it a little.
>>26294445they do copy, but imo they also improve, like, look at this prosche:>>26294117or this ferrari:>>26294330
>>26294453Porsche looks like shit.Ferrari looks cool.
>>26294137>but I think you're hard pressed to find a bad-looking Gemballa.
>>26293509You make it sound cooler than it actually is.
>>26294583IIRC the actual story is that the mob were using Gemballa Cayennes to smuggle cash into SA (Uwe packing the cars up with cash as he rebodied them), then one day a Cayenne arrived with a missing million Euros. Uwe was summoned to SA where he was jumped and killed with a plastic bag. Three nog-sounding gangsters were convicted.
>>26294137>I think you're hard pressed to find a bad-looking Gemballa.t. The Man With No Taste. Pretty much every car they do bodywork on ends up looking worse. The rare ones that look decent makes you wonder if they did anything at all.
>>26294322It'd look okay if it wasn't for the headlight replacement.
>>26293457Does the back of that car say PROJECT SHITBOX?
>>26293485What the fuck is up with burger sirens? >wh-wh-wh-whoop-whwh-who-whOOOOOOOOoop-whwhWHOOP-wh-whAre officers bored while driving so they just keep mashing the fucking siren button until they have finally arrived?
>>26294322This is one the ugliest cars I've ever seen
>>26293485>thing was STILL driving and freely revving upbased.many other modern cars actually completely cut fuel line when a collision gets detected or in best case go into full limp mode
>>26295568It's basically the emergency vehicle version of honking the horn. When you hear that, they're saying "hey, nigger, I know you hear the siren, but, like, YOU'RE STILL IN MY GODDAMN WAY, FAGGOT"
>>26293509His son seems to be doing pretty well.>>26294934"Project Sandbox" They lifted the Marsien and put some giant wheels on it so it could do this -> >>26293620
They were one of my favourite Porsche tuners
>>26296283Good one. Thanks for that, anon.>>26295599I 100% agree. My car should unirinocally allow me to attempt to flee the scene after I crash. It's gay if it doesn't.
>>26293485Alex Chen, if I recall correctly. Buys fast cars to wreck them, meets the stereotype to a painful degree.
>>26296327You mean the kid ben chen. He and his billionaire family spent a shitload cleaning out his digital footprint though.So much info on him is gone.
>>26296327Ben Chen. But yes, he is a total faggot. I would maybe have a shred of respect for him if it was his own money, but he's a trust fund baby whose parents own bunch of Chinese sweatshop factories, if rumor is to be believed.
>>26294117back then it was the fancy smoker pose and now if this was a 2023 photo it would just her doing the loud and obnoxious smartphone call, kek
>>26294117luv the Cocaine Avalanche
>>26295568A lot of cunts think they don’t have to get out of the way when a car on full sirens and lights is closing in on them, so they have the extra horn to be an additional “move, idiot” sound. Fire trucks and ambulances have them too. All three have the authority to ram you out of the way if you still don’t move
>>26296664>All three have the authority to ram you out of the way if you still don’t movethat is neat
>>26296676Why do you think they have big steel bumpers/bullbars?
>>26296768to push through heavy debris I thought. didn't know they're authorized to plow through actually manned vehicles.
991 GTR is sexo
>>26293457>>26293620This is the only cool one>>26294607This is just odd but well executed paint >>26294532You couldn't even pay me to drive this one. I can't believe I used to find Brabus tacky after seeing this collection of shit all at once.
>>26294071I’m sure you can tell me all about the claimed downforce. Any other performance claims that are unverifiable because of how rare these abominations are? >>26294129This. They couldn’t be more tasteless if they tried. It’s a travesty considering how good the CGT is.
>>26293457huhI thought it was a fake company made for Midnight Club 3 because ferrari were being dicks
>>26294125It would look great if they chose better rimst. Algerian
>>26297548Nope. And its founder was a chad cartel-involved supercar tuner.
>>26297556Fucking based kek
>>26297548for quite a while EA had an exclusive licence to use Porsche IP
>>26297709Man fuck this exclusivity shit. I don't understand how a company can forgo a huge opportunity for free advertising (even better than free, the devs pay for the licensing!). Same for console exclusivity Good thing RUF and Gemballa existed, even though they weren't that good a car in the game anyway
>>26297922Because they didn't need the marketing. It was (and still is) more of a marketing boon for a game to use known cars in their games. Hence why game publishers pay auto manufacturers to put their cars in their games, not vice versa.
>>26297935>game publishers pay auto manufacturers to put their cars in their games, not vice versa.Is that so? I thought it was the other way around, it definitely is in games like Ace Combat, but so far i thought it was the devs who paid
For me its the Koenig 911 Turbo Roadrunner
>>26294117>>26296611>>26297709What your backseat got replaced with in one of these.
>>26297937Why would a car company pay a publisher, for said publisher to have exclusive rights to use their cars in video games? Maybe there are some exceptions, but by and large it's publishers paying manufacturers.
>>26297997>Rum, champagne and cigarettesHoly based.
>>26298010Indeed. Interior is pretty based overall. Check out that instrument cluster.Also the Mirage GT that faggot Ben Chen ordered (and crashed) came with a secret compartment, which he mentioned in an interview.
Need more cars with silhouettes like this.
>>26297922hey retardEA had an exclusive Porsche license because they used it to make one of the greatest racing games of all time and kept paying Porsche the license so that it could continue to be sold as part of NFS compilation packs.On the flip side Sega licensed Ferrari for Outrun 2 and lost that license later on forcing them to pull all copies of the game from sale, and remove and destroy arcade cabinets, and now the only way to play OR2 in any form is pirating it. Same happened with Sega Rally 3 and its ports.car licensing is aids but EA wasn't exactly squatting on it and were more than happy to sub-license(Porsche DLC pack for Forza 4 came into existence this way).
>>26298574>the only way to play it is to pirate itOr just like, put it into your xbox.
>>26298675>hardcopy softwareok boomer
>>26298574>hey retard rude
>>26300505Beat it faggot
>>26294322Like a Porsche was magnetized and then driven through an Autozone’s “tuner” aisle.
>>26294330>ricing out a $3m hypercarJesus christ
>>26301854It was $660k when it came out, this was before VW opened the floodgates for million dollar hypebeast mobiles with the Veyron
>>26293474A dead man who was in over his head.
>>26305661Who tuned the world’s most expensive production cars for 30+ years.
>>26293485Por Carrera GT. It deserved a merciful death, and finally got it.
>>26298010the gemballa mercs of the 80s were pure cocaine-excess kino
