GeigerCars, the Bavarian tuning company specializing in American cars has released their aftermarket supercharger system for the new 2011 Ford Mustang GT, giving the ponycar a new weapon in the muscle car war.
The new 2011 Ford Mustang GT goes back to the good ol’ days with the big, bad 5.0-liter V-8. Named the “Coyote”, the new V-8 replaces the aging 4.6-liter in the Mustang lineup, and brings the famous “5.0” back to the Mustang lineup. The engineers at GeigerCars were anxiously awaiting the arrival of the new V-8, and were quick to develop a new supercharger system for more power. The new compressor displaces 2.3 liters and uses a screw condenser to force air at 0.5 BAR (7.25 PSI) into all eight cylinders. Power increases from 412 horsepower and 390 lb-ft. to 497 horsepower at 6,400 RPM and 468 lb-ft. of torque at 4,200 RPM. The new supercharger kit also removes the top speed limiter, pushing it back to 170 mph.
In addition to the new supercharger kit, GeigerCars also offers new wheels and chassis upgrades. Giving the Mustang a more muscular appearance are new OZ Ultraleggera lightweight wheels that measure 8.5 x 20 up front and 10 x 20 at the rear. The multi-spoke wheels wear 245/35 R 20 and 285/30 R 20 high performance directional tires that claw at the tarmac. Customers can also order a sport chassis upgrade that further improves the handling dynamics of the Ford GT.
The supercharger kit, wheels, and suspension upgrades for the Ford Mustang GT are currently available from GeigerCars. The base car starts at € 42,900 (+/- 58,000 USD), with the supercharger kit adding an additional € 12,990 (+/- 17,500 USD). The OZ wheels can be purchased for € 5,190 (+/- 7,000 USD), while the sports suspension is available for € 1,899 (+/- 2,500 USD).
