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.
