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.
GM’s new commercial features CEO Ed Whitacre walking through an auto plant as he tells us that GM has repaid its government loans five years ahead of schedule.
