Geiger Ford Mustang GT 820 tuning package revealed

German tuning company Geiger Cars has unveiled its latest Ford Mustang upgrade package, called the GT 820. It gives the popular new sports car a new look and significantly more power.

Starting with the power, the GT 820 is based on the new Mustang GT and its 5.0-litre naturally aspirated V8. In standard form the unit produces 306kW and 530Nm (Australian-spec). After the fitment of a 2.9-litre supercharger, outputs are lifted to a whopping 612kW and 760Nm.

To help the engine cope with the extra power and boost pressure, it has been rebuilt with forged pistons, beefier conrods, and a higher-strength crankshaft. The fuel injection system and engine computer have also been tweaked to manage it all.

Coinciding with the engine upgrades, Geiger has devised a new limited-slip differential using a 3.73:1 gear ratio, as well as fitted up the Brembo braking package from the GT Performance option, as well as developed a bespoke sports suspension tune.

As for the exterior, there are a number of tasteful enhancements to give the ‘Stang a more unique look on the road. Firstly, a set of forged 20-inch alloy wheels in black make it look racier straight away, while the wide open front grille and carbon fibre treatment give the car a more menacing face. There’s also dark bonnet vents and a carbon fibre rear diffuser and spoiler.

Geiger is planning to make the GT 820 as a turn-key package that punters can purchase as new. Existing owners can of course also purchase the various bits and pieces separately. Prices for the complete package start at an eye-opening US$124,570, however, considering the power level it should be able to fend off supercars with a similar price tag.
