The German tuner GeigerCars unveiled the Mustang GT "Shelby", a tuning kit based on the new Ford Mustang GT. The new package comes with both performance upgrades, but also with a few styling modifications.
Under the hood GeigerCars placed a 5.4 liter aluminum engine with a 3.3 liter compressor. Thanks to larger throttle valves, a modified injection system, a 100 millimeter air flow meter and machined cylinder heads the engine delivers an impressive 810 HP at 6,700 rpm and 945 Nm at approx. 4,300 rpm. The result is an impressive 219 mph.
The tuner also added a new racing chassis as well as a Panhard rod made from chrome-moly steel including polyurethane bushes on the ends, 20" classic OZ alloy wheels and high performance brakes.
If you aren’t familiar with the German auto motive importers then there are only two things that you need to know. They really like anything powered by an American made V8, and they aren’t afraid to turn up the boost in order to make them go faster. Fresh off of Bob Lutz’s CTS-V Challenge, the latest addition to Geiger’s catalog is the pride and joy of Cadillac’s V Series lineup, a hot rod four door luxury sedan. In order to hang with tuned Audi RS6s and Mercedes E63 AMGs Geiger has upgraded the ZR-1 inspired supercharged 6.2 Liter LS motor from producing 556 HP and 551 lb-ft of torque to be on par with the Corvette super car, making 619 HP and 627 lb-ft of twist. The Cadillac CTS-V’s top speed has also been raised to 205 MPH to ensure that it is Autobahn ready.
The Ford GT is without a doubt one of the best blue oval cars of all time, so it is no wonder that despite being out of production since 2006 tuners are still tweaking the 21st century retro super cars today. The most recent group to turn a wrench on a GT are the U.S. high performance specialists at Geiger Cars when they readied their HP790 package for the Ford.
The Geiger HP790 is powered by a the Ford GT’s standard 5.4 Liter V8 unit, however it has been boosted by about 240 HP to produce a maximum output of 790 HP and 637 lb-ft of torque. Thanks to the newfound power the Ford GT is able to sprint from 0 to to 60 MPH in under 3.6 seconds and climb all the way up to a top speed of 223 MPH. In order to keep the super car stable at speed, the GT has been lowered by about two and a half inches that eliminates whatever fender gap was in between the body and the car’s 20 and 21 inch staggered wheel setup giving the tuned Ford GT the stance it deserves.
The Corvette ZR-1 is an interesting choice to finish off our trio of over the top German tuner cars, but even in Germany, those Autobahn crazed automotive enthusiasts can’t deny the power of good old Detroit Iron. If you happen to be in the market for a late model General Motors sports car in Germany, look no further than Geiger Cars, a vehicle importer that previously offered the very hot Chevrolet Camaro to the European market now introduces the Corvette ZR-1.
However, Geiger Cars doesn’t just offer the ZR-1 as it comes with the blown 647 HP LS9 6.2 Liter V8. Something we will see when the German automotive experts take the cover at the new Geiger GTS at the Frankfurt Motor Show this week. A little bit of work to the engine has raised output to an earth shattering 710 HP and torque is up from 607 lb-ft to 677 lb-ft of twist which will make the
modified ZR-1 run from 0 to 60 MPH in just 3.6 seconds and reach an improved top speed of 212 MPH, perfect for the unrestricted zones of the A24.
Geiger Cars has dressed up the Geiger GTS with a set of staggered lightweight O.Z. Superleggera 19 and 20 inch wheels measuring a solid 12 inches in the back shod with sticky high performance tires. A set of sleek LED taillights look sweet inside the blacked out deck lid with a set of carbon fiber seats on the interior.
One of the first companies offering the American pony car to the European market was the German based Geiger Cars back in June, and while Chevrolet is currently only producing the 2010 Camaro in two different output levels, Geiger is offering them in three. General Motors makes a very fuel efficient 3.6 Liter V6 that makes 308 HP and will get as much as 29 MPH on the highway while still cranking out almost 275 lb-ft of torque. The high end SS Camaro is being offered with a rather impressive 432 HP 6.2 Liter LS3 V8, the same unit found in the Chevrolet Corvette C6, that makes a ground pounding 420 lb-ft of torque.
However Geiger is offering the 21st century pony car with the addition of a supercharger under the hood that increases the V8 powered Camaro’s output up to a roaring 568 HP and 589 lb-ft of torque. Allowing the newfound compressed air to escape from the piston pumper are a set of high flowing sport catalytic converters that feed into a stainless steel Geiger manufactured high performance sport tuned exhaust. Charged with clamping duties and getting almost 600 lb-ft of torque to the ground is a specialy designed twin plate sport clutch. Even with the Geiger Camaro’s shorter rear end the blown American muscle car can still reach a top speed of 195 MPH, quite a feat for any American production car.
Since power is nothing without control, Geiger has also found time to fit the Camaro SS wit a fully adjustable coil over suspension as well as a set of sport tuned anti-roll bars to keep all four wheels flat on the pavement and the Camaro tracking in a straight line when it gets close to that top speed. It takes a lot of braking power to bring a couple thousand pounds from early 200 MPH to a dead stop, so that is why Geiger fitted a paor of six piston brake callipers up front over a set of grooved 380 mm disks and a pair of four piston stoppers out back with some more grooved dinner plates measuring 355 mm in diameter. Housing all of that very important stopping technology are a set of 22 inch rims wrapped in a set of 265/30 tires up front and some 295/25 rubber donuts out back. All we want to know is where can we sign up.
It’s true that the future of the large American symbol of excess is uncertain, but that doesn’t keep automotive enthusiasts from making into the truly cool car that it can be. However where the YAAS EDITION was built for a king with gold and fine leather, this GeigerCars Hummer H2 is more suited for a pimp with its two tone crème paint scheme, 30 inch chrome dinner plates and purple headliner.
For starters the Geiger H2 is painted Latte Macciatto, it begins with a noble brown base and then a few elements are covered with a very interesting crème-beige. The H2 rides on a set of extremely oversized wheels that measure 30 inches in diameter. Inside are a set of high performance Brembo brake set up consisting of huge 380 mm cross drilled rotors and a set of 4 piston calipers up front and 2 piston units out back.
Like all of Geirger’s creations, the engine has been supercharged and now delivers a maximum output of 547 HP and 563 lb-ft of torque from the blown V8. This translates into a 0 to 60 MPH sprint that will take less than 7 seconds and allows the pimptastic brick to hit a top speed of 141 MPH.
What happens if you are an automotive enthusiast with dreams of chasing the limits of a modern day muscle car on one of the last unrestricted stretches of pavement in the world? The car is the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro, and the road is the Autobahn, only one problem. The car is in the U.S. and the highway is in Germany, delivery could entail an epic road trip retracing the migration patterns of the native Americans back across the Bearing Straight through the twisties of the Himalayas and finished off by a cruise along the Mediterranean coast; but by then you will be too tired to fully enjoy the SS’s 422 HP LS3 on the great German freeway.
Due to GM’s current situation, it doesn’t look like the automaker is too worried about exporting a limited number of high performance models overseas. So the last thing you can do is contact an importer like Geiger Cars, and let them m take car of the whole importation process for you. They will even provide performance modifications like upgraded brake packages as well as more muscular sounding exhaust systems. So if you are planning a bowtie fan’s vacation of a lifetime check out the link to see what they are all about.
For those who know of GeigerCars.de, the tuning specialists native to Munich, this name instantly calls to mind their impressive Hummer SUVs. Up until now, these SUVs have long been regarded as the sumo kings amongst automobiles – however GeigerCars.de has decided to change all that and have now served up something significantly larger on their plate: the Ford F-650.
This monster truck is a solid 21.3 feet long and brings an entire 5.2 tons of curb weight to the scale. The car’s documentation will attest to the fact that the vehicle has a gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of 7.5 tons. As it just lies under the limit, the Ford F-650 can be driven based on the regulations of the “old” class 3 driver’s license. The wheelbase totals 15.1 feet - just barely under the total length of a Hummer H2 (15.8 feet, 2.9 tons). Next to the Ford F-650 the Hummer H2 takes on the appearance of a compact car.
A simple push of the F-650s ignition button awakens the diesel engine typical of American trucks. The 6.7 liter capacity of the formidable Cummins diesel engine is distributed amongst only six cylinders, which means the combustion chambers take on the dimensions of milk bottles.
For all the folks who don’t know, Geigercars is a tuning company that offers cars in all shapes and sizes from Hummer to well-known Ford GT. This time Geigercars surprised us with their customized Chevrolet Corvette Z06, look at that rear end ! Finally something looking different while keeping the tradition of the round tail light. Ok it looks a bit F430 copycat but it is a nice try.
As you know, the “standard” Corvette Z06 has 512hp but after the customization the LS7 7.0-liter V8 engine develops now an astonishing 592 hp. Fitted with 19” black wheels for better handling the car is capable to achieve 300 km/h with absolutely no problems while the sprint from 0-100 km/h is made under 5 seconds.
The Ford GT is a living legend. For those who have driven this car before it is hard to imagine what it means to gain 29 % more performance power. Its supercharged engine with an impressive 701 bhp/ 523kW producing a peak torque of 7407 in-lbs reaches a top speed of 211 mph. The engine’s shear force gives you goose bumps and its deep base just about takes your breath away. With the tuning modifications carried out by GeigerCars.de the Ford GT really outdoes itself.
