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.
Ford’s mighty F-150 SVT Raptor recently got a host of changes to make it more driver-friendly and off-road capable, but the lack of engine modifications seem to have inspired Geiger Cars to make a few changes of their own. Their package basically pays homage to Hennessey’s VelociRaptor 600 - even though probably not on purpose - with similar improvements done at an expert level.
But let’s get back to the F-150. In its standard form, the Ford truck’s 6.2-liter V8 delivers a total of 411 HP, but after the German tuner’s handywork, it now delivers an impressive 600 HP. This was done with a built-in compressor that also amounts to a fuel savings at a constant speed of 100 mph.
The package includes a few other additional features, including a six-speed automatic transmission, differential lock, 17-inch alloy wheels with massive 35-inch off-road tires BRGoodrich, a Sony sound system, dual-zone air conditioning, and numerous leather items. These changes can be applied for both the Super Cab and Super Crew Cab versions.
The problem with all of these updates is that they come with an astronomical price of € 74,900, or about $90,500 at the current exchange rates.
German tuner, Geiger Cars, seems to be quite passionate about American muscle cars from Dodge, so after doing some great modifications on the Challenger, they have now turned their attention to the Charger SRT8. Their new package updates the exterior and provides some power and handling adjustments.
The Charger SRT8 has been criticized by many for not being great in corners, so the first thing Geiger did was add a new set of professional springs and dampers. Combined with a new set of 22" wheels painted in matte black, this package will lower the car’s ride and improve its handling capabilities.
The next step was the addition of a compressor kit that significantly improved the 6.4 liter V8 HEMI’s engine. This allows the Charger SRT8 to deliver an amazing 625 HP - up from the standard 465 HP. Nothing was said in terms of how these changes affected the car’s performance, but we’re expecting a top speed greater than the standard 175 mph.
German tuning company, Geiger Cars, specializes in American vehicles, which is confusing considering that they have many a German cars in their own backyard. Nevertheless, we still consider these guys as one of the best tuners in Germany and their latest program for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible only adds to their growing reputation as one of the finest in the industry.
Comprising of an extensive program that includes visual and technical modifications, Geiger Cars certainly did their homework on the new Camaro Convertible. The aerodynamic kit fitted into the muscle car features plenty of new elements, including a new front spoiler, side skirts, a rear diffuser, a new set of 22" Geiger wheels, an adjustable sport suspension with stabilizers, a new Geiger sport exhaust system, and a custom metallic paint finish that adds a flavor of edginess and aggression to an already intimidating muscle car.
Under the hood of the Camaro Convertible, Geiger Cars went and smacked some modifications on the car’s 6.2-liter V8 engine, courtesy of the company’s very own Kompressort Kit. The result is a significant increase in output from the standard 430 horsepower and 430 lb/ft of torque figures all the way up to an impressive 568 horsepower and 575 lb/ft of torque.
Should you be interested in this fine piece of German tuning craftsmanship, Geiger Cars has given a price for the whole program, car included, at €84,900, which is around $111,350 based on current exchange rates.
The Chevrolet Camaro is so popular that, despite its all-American roots, the muscle car still generates tremendous amounts of interests from tuning companies a continent away.
Geiger Cars is a German-based tuning company of American cars so it was only obvious that they would come out with a ridiculous program for the Camaro Convertible.
And boy, did they ever.
On mere aesthetics alone, the Camaro Convertible looks about as hot as any aftermarket Camaro we’ve seen in a while. It’s dressed in a Black and Orange paint scheme, complete with with a new body kit consisting of a new chin spoiler, a rear diffuser, a boot lid wing, new side skirts, and a set of 22" wheels that, for lack of a better term, are bursting in orange. On top of that, Geiger also added a new adjustable suspension system and a new sports exhaust system to keep the car on its edge.
Despite the rather audacious look of the car, the performance upgrade under its hood is what makes this program a must-have for Camaro owners. Using the same 6.2-liter V8 engine from the muscle car, Geiger Cars added a supercharger system, ratcheting up the car’s output from 430 horsepower and 420 lb/ft of torque all the way up to 568 horsepower and 574 lb/ft of torque.
The whole program looks fantastic from top to bottom. That’s why you’ll need to pay premium prices - €85,000 ($116,000) - for the privilege of owning one.
German tuning company, Geiger Cars, has made a reputation for itself as being one of the best European aftermarket tuning companies that deal with making programs for American cars. So if there’s a Chevrolet Camaro on the other side of the pond that needs some tuning work, Geiger Cars is one of the first that anybody should call.
One of their latest programs for the Camaro is called the ’Blaumatt Gold,’ which, as the name suggests, is named after the muscle car’s fancy two-color paint scheme. In addition to the ridiculously fabulous paint finish, Geiger Cars also gave the Camaro some aerodynamic tweaks in the form of a new spoiler kit, a new adjustable sports suspension, a new sport exhaust system, an RS package, parking sensors, a new sound system, black leather interior, and finally, a set of 22" gold alloy wheels.
Under the Camaro’s hood, Geiger Cars added a compressor kit and provided further tweaking of the engine, turning the output of the muscle car’s 6.2-liter V8 engine from the standard 422 horsepower all the way up to an impressive 500 horsepower.
In the event that you’re interested in Geiger Cars’ "Blaumatt Gold" program for the Camaro SS, you’ll need to have at least €79,900 ($110,000 at the current rates) at your disposal.
The 2011 Mustang Shelby GT500 is a star among Mustang stars, but German tuner, Geiger Cars, has released a package that is sure to make the muscle car shine even brighter. The Mustang Shelby GT640 "Golden Snake" has undergone a transformation that includes a bump in power and a sparkling new exterior color. It can be yours for 89,000 euros, or about $126,000 at the current exchange rates.
The 550 HP aluminum 5.4 Liter supercharged V8 engine has been manhandled to deliver 640 PS (531 kicking ponies) with the use of a 2.3 liter compressor and a new exhaust system. The exterior is brightened up with a dead gold that lights up with the reflection of the sun. Geiger Cars then used matte black Geiger rims and a carbon fiber hood to contrast with the vibrant new exterior color.

The 2008 Chevy Tahoe Hybrid came out at the tail end of 2007 and featured two-mode hybrid technology optimized for city and highway driving. The first mode allowed the driver to operate the vehicle at low speeds and low loads with the use of electric power only, engine power only or in any combination of engine and electric power. The second mode is used primarily for highway speeds with the advantage of using the full eight-cylinder engine power when the conditions demand it.
This type of technology is practically essential for an SUV’s survival in the more environment –friendly world we are becoming. This is why GeigerCars has gone a step further by transforming this two-mode into a tri-mode with the use of an LPG system. This LPG is the best environmental alternative to petrol and diesel fuel. Its gas tank holds 109 liters to allow the Tahoe Hybrid to travel adequate distances. The current price for LPG also allows for a cost reduction of 50% in comparison to other fuels. Geiger Cars is charging 56,000 Euros for Chevrolet Tahoe with an additional 4,000 Euros for the actual installation of the LPG system in Munich.
The 2008 Chevrolet Tahoe Hybrid runs on a 6.0-Liter-V8 engine that produces 332 PS at 5,100 rpm and 498 Nm at 4,100 rpm mated to a four-stage automatic gear shift control system with overdrive.
For most of us the Corvette Grand Sport is a perfect car in its standard version, but even a great car can get better. That is, if you have a few thousand dollars in your pocket. The German tuner, GeigerCars has prepared a tuning package for the Grand Sport that improves both the car’s aerodynamics and performance because, hey, the car wasn’t fast enough already.
The 6.2 liter V8 engine has been tuned to deliver an impressive 588 hp at 6,490 rpm and torque of 738 Nm at 4,030 rpm leaving the original and measly 430hp eating its dust. The result is a sprint from 0 to 60 mph in less than 4 seconds and a top speed of 209 mph.
The aerodynamic package includes a wider front fender (obviously to illustrate its engine’s size) and a rear fender with additional vents, a front diffuser, and larger rear spoiler. Overhauled sway bars, shock absorbers and springs, and 18 and 19 inch light alloy rims, with 275/35 and imposing 325/30 tyres round off the powerful package.
While winter is over in most of the world, Geiger Cars has decided this is the best time to unveil a Hummer H2 customized for any road condition including 1 meter high snow.
Called the H2 Bomber, this vehicle is equipped with Mattracks 88M1-A1 rubber tracks at each wheel measuring 40cm wide and 150cm long. The interior gets a matte silver finish with extra headlights on the roof and lettering printed in an army style, but an added element of fun can be seen in the sunroof, navigation system with a Kenwood DVD drive, roof monitor with headphones, and rear-view camera.
Under the hood the V8 engine has been tuned to deliver 398 bhp and 574 Nm of torque.
So, off-roaders, what are you waiting for? Oh yeah, next winter!
