GeigerCars Adds Power and Sophistication to the C7 Corvette Stingray

GeigerCars of Germany is no stranger to the world of Corvettes, so it’s no surprise that the tuner company knocked it out of the park with its C7 supercar.

Their latest creation won’t come cheap, but if you want a Corvette Stingray that you won’t see every day on the street, you might want to talk to them.

German Tuner Geiger Goes to Work on the 2014 Corvette Stingray

We’ve spotlighted many of the wild custom cars from GeigerCars, which has been tuning American cars in Germany for 35 years.

Their latest creation, based on the wildly popular 2014 Stingray, isn’t as over the top as some of their previous work, but the car features a custom paint treatment that favors the C6 427 Anniversary Edition with a white base topped with two blue stripes that end on the top of the hood instead of going all the way down to the spoiler like the factory job.

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.

Geiger's Corvette ZR1 GTS

Munich Germany-based Geiger Motor Cars loves to tune Corvettes. Recently, they took delivery of a White Corvette ZR1 and worked their magic both under the hood and on the exterior and the Geiger GTS Corvette ZR1 was born. Introduced this week at the Frankfurt Motor Show, the newly minted Corvette ZR1 Geiger GTS now boasts 710 hp.

For some reason, I’ve always liked what Geiger has done with Corvettes. Sure, they can be over-the-top like the neon green Corvette Z06 we recently profiled. On the Geiger GTS, I do like front treatment better than the rear, and the side-skirts in black carbon fiber against the Arctic White exterior is stunning. The black OZ wheels and center hood stripe also gives the Geiger GTS some serious “curb appeal”.

In the press release that follows, I do believe something was lost in the translation. At least I hope something was lost in the translation as they refer to the supercharged LS9 V8 as “primitive”.

Press Release:

Geiger GTS: Extreme sportsman with retro elements The announcement was clear: “It is very important for Corvette, to offer the strongest, most high performance and best sports car in terms of handling in the USA.” With these words the former chairman of General Motors Rick Wagoner set his engineers a clear goal around two years ago, which also included trumping the Dodge Viper SRT10, which was shown at the Detroit Car Show shortly before, in all regards.

The technicians got to work and so the next year the persons responsible were able to proudly unveil the quickest and highest performance series vehicle ever produced by General Motors: the Corvette ZR1.

Under the sheer endlessly long bonnet of the ZR1 lurks a newly developed LS96.2 litre small block V8 with compressor supercharging. Pressurized by the Eaton R2300 compressor with up to 0.72 bar, this primitive engine gets up to 647 HP and a maximum torque of 823Nm.

Further technical highlights of the extreme Corvette are its high performance breaking system with their 394 and 381 mm diameter carbon ceramic discs, as well as the electronically controlled suspension “Magnetic Selective Ride Control” with track level suspension mounting. Bonnet, roof, sill, rear wing and front spoiler are made of super light, but at the same time high strength carbon.

GeigerCars.de from Munich, which has specialized in the import and refinement of US cars for years, has not only brought this extreme sportsman from the United States to Germany, it has also optionally subjected it to diverse tuning measures at the same time – the first example of the Corvette ZR1 “Geiger GTS” will be presented to the world public at the 63rd International Automobile Exhibition at Frankfurt am Main from 17th to 27th September.

The datasheet for the Corvette ZR1 “Geiger GTS” shows 710 HP maximum performance with 6,600 rotations per minute and the car produces gigantic 918 Nm on the crankshaft at only 4,200 revs. Set up in this way the ZR1 storms up to 100km/h in just 3.6 seconds, and at the same time nails the back of the occupants’ head to the head rest of the Geiger carbon sport seats. The propulsion only ends at a speed of 342 kilometres per hour.

At these values the hardest work is done by the 10 x 19 and 12 x 20 inch high performance tyres mounted on light metal rims with the dimensions 285/30ZR19 at the front and 345/25ZR20 at the rear tyres.

Of course GeigerCars extensively modified the look of the Corvette, lending it a styling, which is reminiscent of the large Gran Turismos of the 60′s and 70′s. The front and back were extensively modified; a wide air vent dominates the nose, while a massive diffuser attracts attention at the back. Both the fog and rear lights are based on modern LED semi conductive technology. The three layer mother of pearl varnish of the Corvette ZRI “Geiger GTS” with changing colour play is also a real eye catcher.

Geiger's 890 hp biTURBO Corvette Z06

Roughly a year ago, we were going gaga over German-based Geigercars Corvette Z06 Black Edition which upped the horsepower of the already potent LS7′s stock 505 horsepower to 592. It seems lately that tuners can’t get enough horsepower or so Geiger installed a couple of turbos on the now venerable Z06 and painted it neon green to make sure people see it coming. The result? Geigercar’s 890 horsepower biTURBO Corvette Z06.

The biTURBO is more than just a Z06 with twin-turbos. The package starts with increasing total displacement from 7.0 to 7.6 liters. Upgraded cylinder heads, valve springs, and cams were added as well as a less restrictive exhaust system. The rear wheels were upsized to 345/25s and adjustable coilover shocks and larger brakes helps keep the Corvette firmly planted to the road. To handle the additional horsepower, the drivetrain was beefed up with a new twin-disc clutch and a carbon fiber driveshaft.

Performance-wise this all ads up to 890 horsepower and 694 lb-ft torque and a reported top speed of 220 mph!

In addition to the performance upgrades, Geiger tops off the project with their body kit finished in a bright neon green with a black hood and roof. We particularly like the black headlights which adds a sinister look to a Corvette. We’d move over for sure if we saw it approaching in our rear view mirror.

Corvette Z06 Black Edition by Geigercars

by Keith Cornett on April 19, 2008

GeigerCars Corvette Z06 Black Edition

German-based Geigercars was already well known in Corvette tuner circles for their performance engine enhancements and wide body kits. So when they turned their attention to the Corvette Z06, something special was bound to happen. GeigerCars calls it the Corvette Z06 Black Edition.

The Corvette Z06 is already ahighly tuned machine with 505 horses available for the driver. GeigerCars managed to up the performance of the LS7 7.0L V8 to a whopping 592 horsepower. And then there’s the body. The Z06 Black Edition matches the car’s sinister performance with a blacked out body. Very intimidating. The only trace of color comes from the red brake calipers behind the black 5 Spoke Corvette rims. The rear fascia has been redesigned and features a set of smaller diameter taillights that remind us of a Ferrari. And while its different than a stock Z06, we’re okay with it.
