If you’re looking for an American vehicle redefined by an European tuner, you have to include Geiger Cars. The German modification company has a passion for enhancing U.S. vehicles. The latest project to be released by the German tuner is based on the 2011 Ford Mustang 5.0.
“In early summer of this year – and therefore just in time for the introduction of the trendy Pony Car on its home market – GeigerCars.de presented the first vehicles of the 2011 Ford Mustang generation in the Munich showroom as well. The Bavarian US car specialists now react by taking their own tuning version of the V8 coupe to the start. It was refined both regarding looks and performance,” stated the press release. Read more!
The vehicle’s V8 engine is now assisted by a compressor. We are talking about a screw condenser with a volume of 2.3 liters that offers a boost pressure of 0.5 bar. The engine has also received other modifications and has been boosted from its factory stock output of 412 hp and 529 Nm of torque to 497 hp and a peak torque of 634 Nm. The engine uses the standard six-speed automatic gearbox.
The tuner also chose to ditch the ‘Stang’s factory-installed electronic speed limiter. The result? The vehicle now offers a top speed of 170 mph (274 km/h).
Geiger has also enhanced the vehicle’s handling, as it has fitted it with a modified suspension and with a set of OZ Ultraleggera lightweight alloy rims that come in a 8.5×20 inch size for the front axle and in a 10×20 inch size for the rear one. The front wheels use 245/35 tires, while the power-handling rear ones come with 285/30 tires.
