The quarter-mile used to be dominated by American muscle-cars, even though the star cars of the 1960s and 1970s were capable of knocking down the throne just as effortlessly on windy environs. In these instances they had to acknowledge surrender to rivals which had less potency but were high on speed. However, times have changed as demonstrated by the Dodge Challenger Project Car, presented by Eibach at the Essen Motor Show 2008.

This current century have witnessed the recovery of charm of the initial generation and is also more agile, with superb handling and tougher and unmerciful on its rivals. Coming with a brawny form, its orange finish that comes with two black racing stripes, radiator grill that is set-back and the light-band moving around the back, the recent Challenger of the top SRT8 series is a reminder of the initial R/T of '69.

The memorable debut is brought to mind by Eibach with its deliberate selection of number plates. Containing 425 HP the minimal performance of the 6.1 liter V8 engine also matches that of the iconic 426-cid Hemi engine, the most potent typical motor of the initial series.

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.

The administrator of the famous car tuner is just as enthralled with the offspring of the Wolfsburger innovator: "The Scirocco looks really dynamic and the handling is very agile."

They really stir things up a bit. The ABT Front spoiler makes the distinctive face of the coupe even more unique. Even while on stand still it is apparent who the track or street leader is, as the ABT Scirocco appear to be starving for the kilometers in front of it.

This feeling is maintained by the fine lines on both sides, where the ABT Side skirts take up and carry on the smooth structural design. The pointed air inlets and edges in the doors emphasize the vitality of the bodywork which rises at the rear. The ABT Volkswagen Scirocco appears ferocious and very vibrant.
