Geiger Cars Ford Mustang GT is a Crazy Horse
As eager as we are to get our paws on the new Ford Shelby GT350 Mustang and its yummy flat-plane-crank V8, part of us wishes that Dearborn was also doing a new GT500 with more supercharged ponies than the rear tires know with what to do. Thankfully, the aftermarket is, as always, ready and willing to step into the breach. The American car experts of German extraction at Geiger Cars are merely the latest peeps to do so.
If you were hoping for massive quantities of visual customization, prepare to be disappointed: Other than some stripes across the top and rocker panels, some custom wheels finished in black and a few other minor tweaks, the exterior of this car is pretty much the same as it was when it left the Ford factory. The story of the interior reads much the same way, with the factory-optional Recaro bucket seats and Shaker audio system providing the support and sound.
But the real story is under the skin of this ‘Stang. Geiger Cars installed an upgraded suspension with lowering springs and beefier anti-roll bars, as well as installing a set of Brembo brakes and reprogramming the stability control system to allow a bit more in the way of tail-out shenanigans. And thanks to the Whipple supercharger now sitting atop the 5.0L V8, such shenanigans are a lot easier to come by, as you now have 700 horsepower and 521 lb.-ft of torque at your disposal. Get the rear tires to hook up and you’ll be hitting 62 mph in 3.9 seconds and blitzing onward to 190 mph. At that speed you really should be concentrating on driving, and not the roughly $94,000 a complete (i.e. donor car included) Geiger Cars Mustang costs in Euro Land, though all the parts are available separately if you prefer.
