If Mansory's take on the McLaren MP4-12C was a fiery sunrise, then this is the other side of dawn: the Gemballa GT. Gemballa is campaigning a McLaren in this year's GT3 series, and the company's motorsport experience has been "distilled into a state-of-the art super sports car."

That means new front and rear clips, side skirts and rear wing, plus Gemballa wheels that go an inch bigger than standard – 20 inches up front and 21 in back. Inside, there's white leather trimming and a reworked steering wheel. No engine upgrades have been applied to the GT, but Gemballa says its' working on a power program. Check out all of its angles in the gallery of high-res photos.

      Is it just me or do others find the new McLaren dull? I haven't seen one in person yet, and it doesn't look bad just boring.

      Man, a couple straight days of the auto show has really diminished your supply of oh-so-witty headlines.

      The rear reminds me of the face of a Transformer. I just can't figure out which one, exactly. My only real beef is that the front bumper looks particularly rotund. Still, a little better than the Mansory, overall. 20" and 21" wheels seem particularly ridiculous for a McLaren not named SLR, but keeping in mind this is still a Gemballa product, you could do a LOT worse.

      The front looks like a Modena, i.e. a 10 year old car. I like the rear though.

      Front bumper is a little strange. And the wheels don't belong on such a car. But overall, a lot better than what they do to those poor Porsches.....
