The rest of the car maintains the factory look with only a few subtle pieces added including a custom front lip and forged alloy wheels. Underneath the hood is where most of the modifications take place. Engineers have bumped power up to 542hp (389kW) by adding a sports air-filter, custom exhaust manifolds, steel bed catalysts and remapped the engine’s ECU. The sprint time from 0-100km/h is reduced to about 3.7 seconds, while maximum speed is increased to about 327 km/h.
GeigerCars also offers a high performance brake system and suspension set-up with new springs replacing the standard transverse units. Multi-piece chrome wheels measuring 19in can also be specified. Inside, developers added carbon-fiber panels, and handcrafted leather trim. Pictured below is GeigerCars's 2006 edition Corvette Z06, which you can compare directly with GM's own Corvette ZR1 supercar.
