Two iconic families teaming up

Engine Powered by RUF

A truly bespoke vehicle requires a unique powertrain of the highest  quality

Consequently, Marc Philipp Gemballa teamed up with legendary Porsche engine specialist RUF Automobile for the engine development of the MARSIEN. The vehicle manufacturer registered since 1981, known for it’s Porsche engine expertise, had already worked with Marc’s father Uwe Gemballa on producing the powertrains for various vehicles in the 1980s.​

The engine upgrade ‘POWERED BY RUF’ enables the six-cylinder boxer engine to deliver over 750 horsepower and 930 Newton meters of torque. ​For the ones that are looking for even more power, there is second stage power upgrade by RUF taking the engine up to 830 horsepower with enhanced VTG turbo chargers and a revised ECU mapping and transmission setting.​

Cutting edge suspension technology

Marsien: The Ultimate Adventure Sportscar

The MARSIEN features a completely new developed double wishbone suspension system

For the suspension the young entrepreneur teamed up for a technological partnership with the leading suspension and chassis technology pioneer KW automotive. Together, the two companies have developed a bespoke suspension system, which has been exclusively created for the MARSIEN, featuring extensive changes to the chassis of the base vehicle including a completely new developed double wishbone front suspension setup equipped with KW solid piston damper technology featuring an intelligent active damper control as well as an adjustable ride height system for on and off road use. ​
