This Marsien supercar was conceptualized by Marc Philipp Gemballa, the 27-year-old son of late German tuner Uwe Gemballa, responsible for visually stunning and record-breaking road cars. The Marc Philipp Gemballa GmbH venture, however, isn’t associated with the Gemballa brand. The Marsien is the first offering from Marc Philipp who has launched his own start-up following in his father’s footsteps.

The car has been given the name “Marsien” after being put to the test in the otherworldly backdrop of the Al Faya desert. The modified Porsche 992 Turbo S is a blend between modern-day hypercar performance, off-road capabilities, and daily practicality, resulting in the ultimate driving experience with the latest technologies on all terrains.

The Marsien sprints to 62 mph in 2.6 seconds, and has a top speed of 205 mph. The base twin-turbo flat-six engine makes 740hp, and selective customers are given the option to turn it up to 830 hp. An Akrapovic exhaust system is added for a signature roar.

Working with KW Automotive, Marc Philipp Gemballa developed a suspension system that raises the car up to 10 inches from its stock height. The sports car has also been remapped to include Gravel, Mud, Sand, and Snow modes, and provides two sets of Michelin High-Performance tires for both on-road and off-road use.

The car body went through intensive aerodynamics analysis courtesy of KLK, and is made entirely of carbon fiber. For exterior detailing, the brand says it can fulfill any customer request for paintwork. The interior is inspired by the Carrera GT and is covered in suede and carbon fiber with “Project Sandbox” kickplates.

All this style and performance comes at a hefty price tag. Only 40 units of the Marsien will be produced at a base cost of around €495,000 GBP ($685,000 USD), and customers will need to bring their own Porsche 992-generation 911 Turbo S for the conversion treatment. Car fans are currently split between picking this modern wonder or Singer’s ACS.

Elsewhere in the auto world, Lewis Hamilton wants to change motorsport, and the world.
