GEMBALLA GT Spider Is Perfect Update For McLaren 12C Spider

As exclusive as the high-dollar tuning packages for supercars are, would you actually consider one if you owned the car?

They are typically unresolved and will not age with the same grace as an OEM model.

But every once and a while, there is one that is astoundingly sexy and premium.

Such is the Gemballa GT Spider upgrade — with is a full revamp to the nose and nail of the 12C Spider from McLaren. More painted surfaces along with giant twin ducts in each bumper corner are stellar. Looking outstanding on the Gemballa G-Forged-One wheels, these upgrades are an outstanding option for bringing more beauty and exclusivity to the first-gen McLaren MP4-12C Spider from 2012-2014.




Pure performance

With its roof open to the heavens, the McLaren 12C Spider promises an even more visceral driving experience than its Coupé sister. Sharing the same ultra stiff carbon-fibre tub means the Spider has the same incredible handling with only a minimal weight increase.

Now, owners of this 625hp British supercar looking for an even more individual twist, can order the attractive GEMBALLA GT package for the 12C Spider, which made its world debut at the 2013 Geneva Motor Show.


Highlights of the GEMBALLA GT Spider are its carbon-fibre Aero Kit, interior re-trim in the finest leathers, and the brand new GForged-one lightweight alloy wheels.


A pioneer of personalisation for Porsche cars, GEMBALLA now offers a comprehensive programme for the McLaren family, too. The symbiosis that brings these three great marques together is elegant design, high-performance and the use of lightweight material technologies.

Thus, GEMBALLA’s German designed and manufactured aerodynamic components eschew even the industry-standard use of PU RIM or GRP, making the leap to carbon-fibre for the ultimate in strength and lightness. GEMBALLA’s aerodynamic package consists of a new front bumper/spoiler, side skirts and rear valence, which perfectly line up with the OE bodywork using the factory mounting points. The aero package is easy to install and can be shipped worldwide.


Another highlight for the GEMBALLA GT Spider are the new GForged-one ultra-light, forged alloy wheels, in 20 and 21-inch diameters for the front and rear axles respectively. Although these sophisticated looking wheels are an inch larger in diameter than their factory counterparts, their low weight ensures that the unsprung weight of the vehicle remains unchanged. The GForged-one wheels come in “Black Magic” or “Gunmetal”, with the option of a gloss turned “diamond cut” finish for their spokes.


GEMBALLA is world renowned for the design and quality of its bespoke interior trim. This work is carried out by master upholsterers to the client’s wishes, using only the finest materials. GT Spider customers can choose among the finest leathers and materials to build their individual interior.


The GEMBALLA GT Spider is a true supercar with great performance and aesthetics.
