2008 Essen Motor Show: Dodge Challenger SRT8 by Geigercars

Article by Christian Andrei, on August 26, 2010

GeigerCars, not like most German tuners that usually stick with revising only the European brand, has a popular fascination with muscle cars of the American brand. The company now has taken the current Dodge Challenger and modified it, putting on extra power and making it more fashionable.

Although the production version Dodge Challenger SE sports an unassuming 250hp (186kW) V6, GeigerCars announces on its internet site that this is "totally inadequate." For the German tuner, even the 375hp (280kW) R/T variant and the 425hp (317kW) SRT8 are both a little bit not enough, which is just as well bearing in mind that there are a few 'Kompressorkits' scattered about with the Geiger label. 

Through the muscle of forced induction, Geiger takes the SRT8 Challenger and elevates it to 569hp (424kW), generated at 6,300rpm. At the same time, a torque of almost 500lb-ft (680Nm) will be conveyed toward the totally enormous 22 inch tires at the back, which should be enough to assist the SRT8 to produce a little more smoke than it is previously used to.

Ensuring that the car impresses with its exhaust audio presentation, Geiger is also adding a stainless steel exhaust system for EURO1,990 ($2,560) that will generate a "truly magnificent" audio experience for the observers on the street as well as for the passengers.

On the other hand, stopping potency is supplied by a high-performance braking system offered at EURO6,644 ($8,550). For extra cost, Geiger will include six-pot front calipers and four-pot rear calipers, together with big 380mm brake discs for the front and 355mm discs for the rear. An extra EURO1,529 ($1,967) can avail an adjustable H&R suspension system to enable the vehicle to tackle corners smoothly.
