( Worldcarfans ) - The total number of tuning companies applying their trade to the exclusive Ford GT super car can be counted on one hand. Add Geiger Performance to that list and you're still on the same hand.
More than just a few parts upgrades, Geiger Performance has developed a full program of engine upgrades targeted to the 4000 Ford GT's in existence. They include a larger supercharger from 2.3 liters to 3.3 liters with increased boost pressure from 0.8 to 1.25 bar, recalibrated electronic engine management, enlarged throttle valves, sport air filter, optimized engine and trans cooling systems and a sport exhaust.
As a result, gains are made in horsepower from 650bhp to 701bhp (523kW) and torque of 600 to 617 ft-lbs (837 Nm). 0- 62 mph ( 100 km/h) arrive in 3.5 seconds with a top speed of 211mph ( 340 km/h).
For optimum handling, the GT gets a specially designed adjustable suspension which lowers the body up to 60mm. Brakes are upgraded to Geiger Performance monobloc calipers as well as their set of black wheels with stainless steel inlays.
Visually not much has changed except for the removed rear bumper reinforcement bar which creates a much cleaner look.
