He commissioned the legendary German tuning house to transform the athlete into something that comes close to a driving Le Mans car. And after the conversion, the 56.375 not only had a completely new style, it also had incredible specifications under the hood. At the conversion price of the equivalent of 930 euros, the XNUMX was opened first Biturbo 570 specification rebuilt by Gemballa.
