The 5.0-Liter-V8 engine found in the 2011 Ford Mustang is nothing to shake your head at, especially with its 412hp and 390 ft.-lb. of torque. However, GeigerCars have taken that excellent starting point and sent it on its way to a bigger and better finish. The German tuner has prepared a supercharged package for the 2011 Mustang that will increase the car’s output to a total of 497 HP.
This 85hp boost was accomplished by adding a screw condenser with a volume of 2.3 liters that offers a boost pressure of 0.5 bar. Other technical improvements were also made that lead the Mustang to 497 HP available at 6,400 rpm and 634 NM of torque at 4,200 rpm. The factory installed electronic top speed limiter has also been removed so this muscle car can now hit a top speed of 170mph.
The 2011 Ford Mustang’s handling has also been improved with the addition of a modified suspension, a set of OZ Ultraleggera lightweight alloy rims (8.5x20 inch size for the front axle and 10x20 inch size for the rear), and a sport chassis.
Press release after the jump.
Supercharged! Ford Mustang 2011 with compressor power
In early summer of this year – and therefore just in time for the introduction of the trendy Pony Car on its home market - GeigerCars.de presented the first vehicles of the 2011 Ford Mustang generation in the Munich showroom as well.
The Bavarian US car specialists now react by taking their own tuning version of the V8 coupé to the start. It was refined both regarding looks and performance.
GeigerCars.de brings the 5.0-Liter-V8 a step forward by adapting the compressor. A screw condenser for a volume of 2.3 litres puts an over-pressure of 0.5 bar on this wild horse’s eight combustion chambers. In connection with other technical improvements, this conversion leads to a performance increase from once 412 to now 497 HP available at 6,400 rpm. 4,200 rotations already lead to a torque of 634 Newton metres (series 529 Nm at 4,250 rpm). With this performance upgrade, GeigerCars.de removes the Mustang’s factory-set Vmax lock. It now has a maximum speed of 274 km/h after an acceleration orgy through the six levels of its automatic gear.
For best driving dynamics, GeigerCars.de gave the US-Boy both a sports chassis and extremely light OZ Ultraleggera light-metal wheel rims at a size of 8.5x20 and 10x20 inches. While 245/35R20 high-performance tires indicate direction, the drive axle uses 285/30R20 rubber tires to dig into the asphalt.
