Here’s another Corvette Stingray tuned and updated by GeigerCars of Germany. Geiger has been the go-to tuner for American cars in Europe and this new Corvette Stingray build might just be one of their best yet. Check out some pics of the new GeigerCars Corvette Stingray at the shop of their wrap partners Print Tech.

If that 650 horsepower Corvette Z06 isn’t powerful enough for you, you might want to check out this upgrade from the folks at Late Model Racecraft.
They’ve just released a video showing this beautiful Velocity Yellow Z06 that they have upgraded to coax out 743 wheel horsepower, making it what might be the most powerful C7 Corvette Z06 tested on a dyno so far.
While modding Corvettes is pretty common here in the States, it’s also a phenomenon that happens across the globe as owners search for more power. One such tuner located in western Austria is O.CT Tuning who recently went to work on the C7 Corvette Stingray.
If you want your new C7 Corvette Stingray to speak with a German accent, German tuner Prior Design GmbH may have what you are looking for. They recently revealed their latest Corvette aerobody creation, the PDR700, a widebody kit featuring a new front bumper, spoiler and cupwings; rear diffuser; side skirts; front fenders; and rear fender flares that take the look of the C7 to aggressive new levels.
Texas-based tuner Hennessey Performance has been busy tweeking the new C7 Corvette Stingray over the last year with various packages designed to increase performance of the new sports car. Now that the 2015 model is out, Hennessey recently showed off the performance characteristics of its supercharged HPE700 package on a Corvette Stingray equipped with the new potent 8-speed automatic transmission.
A conservative ECU setup by Chevrolet appears to be the cause for the power loss some 2015 Corvette Z06 owners say they are experiencing after heavy use on the highway or the track.
Some people thought the power loss might be caused by a heat soak problem, which is caused by the buildup of heat in the engine compartment after several full throttle runs. This heat cuts the efficiency of the supercharger because hot air has reduced oxygen molecule density, meaning less fuel will be burned.
We’ve been talking a lot lately about the guys at Vengeance Racing and their Arctic White 2015 Corvette Z06.
First they performed a massive burnout in the Chevrolet dealer’s parking lot after taking delivery of their new Corvette and then after taking the 20 mile trip back to their shop in Cumming, GA., they put the bone stock Z06 on the dyno where it yielded 585 hp and 611 lb-ft torque at the rear wheels.
Last week an Arctic White Corvette Z06 was picked up by the guys from Vengeance Racing who proceeded to do a massive burnout in the dealer’s lot before taking their new super car back to their shop in Cumming, GA.
Once the Z06 was safely ensconced in the tuner’s garage, it was immediately placed on the dynojet to see what its baseline horsepower and torque numbers were.
The annual Essen Motor Show is the place where Germany’s manufacturers and finest tuning specialists display their hottest and sometimes most outrageous creations in a festive atmosphere—think SEMA Show with a German accent. This year, however, an American supercar, the Hennessey C7 HPE700, elbowed its way onto the show floor amongst the sea of hyper-tuned Audis, BMWs, and ‘Benzes to stake Hennessey’s claim as a tuner worthy of worldwide recognition.
