GeigerCars creates show car – Ford Mustang GT520
What is the essence of an American muscle car ? Speed ? Acceleration ? Aspect ? How about all of them? GeigerCars.de, Europe’s leading tuner of American automobiles took the new Ford Mustang GT520 under its wings and started expressing its point of view.
The result of the project made by the German tuner is a pumped-up supercharged car, that reaches 0-100kmh in 4.2 seconds. The heart of this beast is 5.2 (increased from 4.6) V8 engine that is capable of delivering 520 horsepower; the stock version of the car, generated only 300 horsepower. The 220 extra hp were added to severe modifications : sport camshafts, larger intercooler, a supercharger and an upgrade of the software that manages the whole thing.
The power is transferred to the rear axel with the help of a modified six-speed manual gearbox and a heavy duty clutch.
The breaking system is quite impressive. It features vented and cross-drilled 355 x 32-mm brake discs and four-piston aluminum calipers on the front axle. For even better stopping power the GeigerCars.de sport brake system with 355 x 32-mm discs and four-piston aluminum fixed calipers can be installed additionally on the rear axle.
The interior of the car suffered severe modifications. Custom made black leather, sport seats and a sound system that generates 10.000 watts – An Alpine IVA-W200Ri head unit, connected to a PXA-H701 sound processor, barring the Alpine logo as well. Also, with the help of a “Drive&Play” iPod adapter from Harman/Kardon , the users can enjoy the quality of the sound. As for the power, a total of 4 JBL amplifiers ( Px300.4, Px600.2 and A6000GTi) generate more than 10K of w/p. The electrical system’s health is at no risk, due to the five Optima Yellow Top batteries and to the bigger alternator.
This show car will spend the next year showing off at different exhibitions around the globe.
