It's no secret the Corvette C7 Stingray is a hot performer. With its 460 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque, the C7 launches itself to 60 mph in a very respectable 3.9 seconds. Its handling is spectacular too, thanks in part to the Magnetic Ride Control shocks and other Z51-specific parts. However, improvements can always be made.
That?s where one tuner company based in Germany steps in. GeigerCars has developed a performance upgrade kit that includes new coil-over shocks, a carbon-fiber body kit, and an Eaton supercharger. That last bit helps the Stingray?s 6.2-liter V-8 produce an extra 128 horsepower and 107 pound-feet of torque. Now pushing out 582 horses and 558 pound-feet, the Vette?s trap time should be noticeably quicker. In fact, GeigerCars claims the Vette?s new top speed is 198 mph. That?s a big improvement over the stock Stingray?s 178-mph top speed.[...]
