This is how zee Germans do American muscle.
American muscle cars are automotive icons throughout the world. Big, rear-wheel drive V-8s with roaring straight-line speed are intoxicating, so much so, that GeigerCars, a German tuning company, focuses only on the iron that comes from Detroit. Their latest Camaro SS convertible is for those that just cannot wait for the Camaro ZL1 convertible to go on sale in 2012.
The GeigerCars Camaro SS Convertible offers drivers the best of both worlds: a fresh air experience and a roaring V-8 force-fed by a supercharger system. The 6.2-liter V-8 found in the Camaro SS and 2SS convertibles is given a Geiger compressor system and sport exhaust system that pushes output from the stock 426 horsepower all the way up to 560 horsepower at 6,250 RPM and 574 lb-ft. of torque at 4,100 RPM.
As part of the Geiger compressor system, the Camaro SS convertible also gains a number of exterior and chassis upgrades. An aerodynamic kit that includes a front spoiler, side skirts, and a rear diffuser has been installed to create a more aggressive appearance and improve downforce. Special metallic paint or premium paint can be added to give the Camaro a custom look like the muscle cars of the 60’s and 70’s.
The GeigerCars Camaro SS Convertible also gains suspension and wheel upgrades to finish off the exterior appearance. New eight double-spoke, custom-painted wheels are installed in a 10 x 22 fitment with 265/30 ZR 22 front and 295/25 ZR 22 rear tires for better grip. A new adjustable suspension with front and rear stabilizers helps drivers create the perfect setup for a given track or road.
While the interior may already come with an assortment of Chevrolet goodies, GiegerCars can install a few extra features to make the driving experience even more enjoyable. Customers can order special leather fittings and trim, custom sport seats with better bolstering, and new navigation and sound systems for entertainment.
The GeigerCars Camaro SS Convertible is currently available as an entire car starting at € 84,900 (+/- 117,000 USD). Optional metallic paint is priced at € 500 (+/- 700 USD), premium paint for € 800 (+/- 1,100 USD), while the interior upgrades are € 1,000 (+/- 1,400 USD). All parts come with TÜV certification.
