If the Punisher ever decided to get a sports car to help him go about his vigilante way of justice on criminals, he wouldn’t be able to find a more suitable sports car than this Geiger Cars-tuned Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 .
Already considered the most powerful Corvette in the market, there’s very little to do to the ZR1 that can improve its proverbial swag. Nevertheless, German tuner, Geiger Cars, decided to step up to the plate to take a swing, and for the most part, it smacked one out of the park.
Ok, it’s not a moonshot that left the stadium, but it definitely hit the upper deck.
As for the Punisher reference, one of the first things you’ll notice about the program is the use of what looks eerily similar to the Punisher’s skull logo, complete with eyes made out of the Corvette logo. The grey paint finish on the sports car also adds a monochrome punch of aggression that’s further highlighted by the performance mods Geiger performed on the ZR1’s engine.
Speaking of that, the American sports car’s LS9 supercharged 6.2-liter V-8 engine was treated to a host of new components, including new pistons, camshafts, a revised cylinder head, and improvements on the intercoolers, the air intake and the exhaust system.
The result is a drastic uptick in power, hitting 730 horses and 700 pound-feet of torque. That’s up from the ZR1’s standard 638 horsepower and 604 pound-feet of torque. With the increased output, the Geiger-tuned ZR1 now hits a top speed of 220 mph.
Yeah, that much speed is still "streetable", according to Geiger. About the only thing that makes us pause is the kind of dough €234,788 ($303,700) you’ll have to fork over to own it.
Maybe the Punisher has the money to buy it.
