GeigerCars Supercharges the Corvette Grand Sport

GeigerCars Supercharges the Corvette Grand Sport

Munich-based Tuner GeigerCars has a history of tuning Corvettes. Recently, they got their hands on a 2010 Corvette Grand Sport and like most tuners, felt that the 436-horsepower sports car was under powered. After all, why be satisfied with 436 hp when you get to 588 horsepower by adding a 2.3 liter supercharger? GeigerCars claims the Corvette with now run 0-60 mph in under 4 seconds and has a top speed of 209 mph.

The German tuner fitted the Grand Sport with the Z06′s 355 mm six-cylinder discs at the front axle, and 340 mm, four-cylinder discs at the rear. Sway bars, shock absorbers and springs were also overhauled and the transmission’s 5th and 6th gears were modified. GeigerCars also added an aerodynamic package which includes a wider front fender and the new rear fender which has additional vents. The front diffuser and larger rear spoiler are also borrowed from the Corvette Z06.

Lastly, GeigerCars added a custom paint scheme reminiscent of the special Corvette raffled by the Corvette Museum at their 15th Anniversary last Labor Day. Corvette Racing’s mascot Jake is front and center on the hood and an attractive red border surrounds it.
