Believe it or not, the ultimate tuned Corvette is not built in Texas, Charlotte, or Atlanta, but deep in Porsche Country. Geiger Cars of Munich, Germany is a high end dealer that trades exclusively in Detroit steel. They also offer performance packages for a variety of cars, including their Corvette Z06 Geiger Carbon 65 Edition. That name may be kind of a mouthful, but so are the performance figures. The Z06’s 1.7 liter supercharger is replaced with a larger 2.3 liter blower, which results in 770 horsepower. That’s nearly a 20% bump in power over the standard Z06, and 15 more ponies than Chevy’s recently announced ZR1 can manage. Geiger says that their Vette will do 0-62 mph in 2.9 seconds, and top out around 209 mph. Power isn’t everything, so the package also includes options for carbon fiber body accents, upgraded cooling, custom suspension, HRE wheels, and a half-cage with four point harnesses. It’s pretty clear that Geiger is aiming to please track focused customers, which is why the car comes with a free two day driving course on Germany’s famous Nürburgring. If no other tuning shop will do, and you absolutely have to have Geiger’s Corvette, it will set you back at least €136,000, but that’s just the standard Z06. Ticking every option box will end up costing €189,000. That’s $232,000 American. Yikes! You could always just wait a few months for the ZR1 to come out, but you know what they say, waiting is for poor people. Technical data, Corvette Z06 Geiger Carbon 65 Edition Engine: V8 petrol engine with supercharged engine Displacement: 6,162 cc Power: 566 kW / 770 hp at 6,500 rpm Torque: 989 Nm at 3,350 rpm Transmission: 8-speed automatic Consumption urban / out-of-town / combined: 19.1 / 7.8 / 12.0 l per 100 km (Super) Acceleration 0-100 km / h: 2.9 sec. Maximum speed: 337 km / h CO2 emissions, combined: 279 g / km Energy efficiency class: G Emission class: EURO 6 Basic vehicle price: 136,000 euros plus Geiger Cars conversion * Geiger carbon body kit, consisting of front spoiler, front grille, air intakes, front mask, side skirts, fender engine compartment ventilation, rear base with diffuser, rear spoiler (flat / steep) or optional rear wing for racetrack: 9.600, -Euro * Performance increase (compressor 2.3L, machined throttle, changed intake, software tuning, power measurement): 12.900, - Euro * Cooling system "Trackday-Racer" (changed charge air, cooling water and oil cooler systems): 15.500, - Euro * Lowering (with stub axles): 4.290, - Euro * HRE alloy wheels (VA 10.5x19 inches / HA 12.5x20 inches): 7.400, - Euro * Heigo roll bar: 2.600, - Euro * Schroth 4-point harnesses: 1,099, - Euro * *) All prices include installation and 19% Tax. - The Drive
