Corvette Z06 Bi-Turbo Gets Painted Green by GeigerCars...

...fortunately that is not all they did to the Corvette. Leaving the bad choice of color aside, we should give the guys over at GeigerCars a lot of credit for the technical enhancements they've made to the Z06. After all, who would have thought that the 7.0l V8 engine, already developing 512 horsepower, can be made better?

German tuner Karl Geiger took the Z06, gave it a look and said : "this is not enough". As a result and with the help of some technical makeovers (increasing cubic capacity, a turbocharger and the good old air/fuel supply improvements), the Corvette Z06 now has a 7.6l engine developing - we'd suggest you hold on to something - 890 horsepower and 940 Nm of torque.

How did he do it? Modifications were made to the engine block, to the cylinder heads and the crank motions. Geiger employed amplified insert springs, spring cups made of titanium, sport camshafts as well as a 100 mm air mass flow meter. He added two turbochargers and a port exhaust system with four end pipes and here we have it.

Thanks to it all, the car has a maximum speed of 354 km/hour (220 mph) but for some reason, the time required for the 'Vette to reach 100 km/hour was not made public.

As the braking system had to match the high speeds, Geiger fitted the Z06 with 380x32 mm brake discs and 6-piston back gauges in the front and 355x32 mm discs and 4-piston back gauges in the back.

Of course, a new body kit had to be included, as you can see in the photos. The black hood does all it can to save the appearance of the car, but the green is there to stay and not at all eye friendly...
