The trio is complete. After the Ford Mustang and the Dodge Challenger, Chevrolet completed the revival of America’s legendary pony cars with the new 2010 Camaro
. Now, German tuning firm GeigerCars has taken on the challenge of improving on the latest Chevy muscle, adding German engineering refinement while still maintain the car’s brute heritage.
Choosing the range-topping Camaro SS as their base for tuning, GeigerCars’ engineers first set about increasing output from the car’s 432 horsepower 6.2-liter V-8. The house specialty is a high-performance supercharging kit. With a mechanical compressor, GeigerCars pushes the engine power of the Camaro SS to a roaring 568 horsepower and 799 pound-feet of torque. In addition to the new supercharger, the Camaro SS is also fitted with a high-flow exhaust system comprising new catalysts and mufflers.
To make sure all that power reaches the ground, GeigerCars also installs a twin-plate performance clutch for the car’s 6-speed manual. After the reduction of the end gear ratio, the GeigerCars Camaro reaches an impressive 195 mph.
In order to have this power totally under control, GeigerCars has not only installed coilovers and adjustable sports anti-roll bars on front and rear axles, but also a strong braking system. At the front there are 6-piston saddles with grooved 380 mm plates and four piston saddles on 355 mm. These reside within 20-inch alloy wheels shod with 295 mm tires in the rear and 265 mm tires up front.
