Andrea Divirgilio / May 26, 2012

Over the times, we have seen some of the finest tuned cars like the Lamborghini Aventador LP900 Molto Veloce special edition and Porsche Cayenne 958 tuned by noted German tuner DMC, along with the German tuner Wiesmann’s MF5 BMW V8 model in stealth finish. Another German based Porsche-tuner Gemballa, is now taking the concept of ostentatious car finishes to an all-together different level with its newly announced finish that literally uses diamonds to create its thousands-gem sparkle. Designed to be equally attractive to both gentlemen and ladies of sophistication, this very special ‘gem-finish’ created by premier automotive tuner, Gemballa, is described to the world’s first diamond coating for the vehicle’s exterior and interior.

Rather than using reflective ingredients like metal pigments, crystals or glass fragments, this new diamond finish is the result of one-of-its-kind complex process that uses genuine diamonds as its key ingredient, as claimed by the company. Further, the very requirement that the coating has to be applied like a paint actually defined each of the gemstone’s dimensional limit, and the Gemballa’s challenge was to grind the diamonds to an appropriate size intended for their purpose, without losing its original brilliance.

Additionally, the property of diamond that it reflects the light according to the number of facets showed-up, actually turned out to be an advantage, and the thousands of facets reflecting the light helped creating an incomparable dazzling shine.

Also, as the diamonds are a form of carbon formed under extreme pressure and heat, this unique finish is perfect for the carbon-fiber bodywork of ultra-exclusive cars from the house of Gemballa.
