Geiger Corvette Z06

Other then the lime green look of this machine, its a rocket on wheels. With 890 bhp and 694 ft-lbs of torque coming from the Twin Turboed Z06 engine, you don’t know what to expect of this machine. I do like the rear of that car, the hood doesn’t seem too appealing, but what a monster coming from a German firm. Too handle all this power they have upgraded the brakes, installed a carbon fiber drive shaft, upgraded the clutch to handle this amount of power. I’m honestly surprised that a German company would be so interested in American machines, but the Z06 is one interesting car.

Corvette Z03 – Ugur Sahin partners with Mallett for 999 bhp Twin Turbo Corvette

z03_1
Its rare to see a design company that creates concept vehicles suddenly make it into a production vehicle. This is what happened with Ugur Sahin Design, they joined up with Mallet Cars to make for a very mean looking machine.

The body has been redesigned with functionality in mind, creating more downforce and more space for engine modifications. The modified body is available for $69,000, but there are also other vehicle modifications which include suspension, interior, engine, and brakes. You can have the Z03 with 700 bhp which will cost you $32,000 or the 999 bhp model for $35,795. All of this and you have yet to include the price of a Z06, I don’t know what the performance of this car will be like but all I know is that it looks mean and it has the bite to go with the bark.

2009 Corvette GT1 Championship Edition

A few modifications to the normal Corvette, its a package then you can get for the C6, Z06, or ZR1 to look like this GT1. Only a limited number of units will be made in this package, I like the graphics on the hood but may be with another color. If it is a non-Z06 then they get the Z-51 performance package, and they all come with chrome wheels. This might not be to everyone’s taste but its interesting how GM is still making this in their situation, I just hope they don’t stop making cool cars.

Corvette Centennial Concept aka Sideswipe

I don’t know what is more exciting, taking a look at this beautiful machine that GM has created. Or that this machine is going to be one of the robots in Transformers 2: Revenge of The Fallen! They have to put this machine into production, it looks so damn menacing, I want to get my hands on it. This corvette would transform into Sideswipe, a robot with skates. It will be a success just as the Corvette is, if it went into production which I doubt at this point.

Innotech C6 Corvette


I have to say that I never thought a Czech company would be able to improve the look of the Corvette and yet they did. It has a bit of similar look to a 599, and they also have some engine modifications available for C6, Z06, and ZR1. I’m curious to see what these machines are able to do since they do perform in the first place.

Geiger Corvette Z06

This is one of the coolest looking Z06s I have ever seen, and I love the color matte black on this machine, and the orange strip makes it look mean. I’m not sure what they did to the rear of the vehicle but it looks very good. It seems Geiger is a German company that modifies American vehicles, I’m not sure exactly what they do to it but it looks damn good.

Corvette ZR1 Pricing

There is a lot to be said about the Corvette, and now that they are introducing the ZR1 its nothing short of a monster. 0 to 60 in 3.4 seconds and pumps out about 638 bhp, I was afraid of the Z06 but this is just on another level. I decided to inquire into the pricing of the machine. It seems there are two packages, the 3ZR and 1ZR, the 3ZR being the more expensive. It is guesstimated that the 3ZR would be at $117’000, the only options available are the color, the rims, and the navigation/sound system. The rest of the car is fully loaded.

I passed by the dealership in Kuwait and this is the information I received.

There is a waiting list of 9 people who are putting money down and it is priced between 31’000 to 37’000 KWD. They aren’t sure yet, but what they do know is that they had an allotment of 8 but it has been reduced to 2 cars, and they pretty much sold.

So I called up Courtesy Chevrolet in California, I know that they are the biggest Corvette Seller on the West Coast. They are receiving an allotment of 10 and they have 7 people on the waiting list. After asking a few questions, he shocked me with a huge mark up, for th 3ZR it is list of a $117’00 and a mark up of $50’00, and you will receive the car by spring of next year, if you want the car this summer then the mark up is $60’000. For a grand total of $177’000 which is roughly 47’790 KWD.

I called up a few other dealership until finding Putnam Chevrolet close to San Francisco and he didn’t mention a mark up on the ZR1. He is expecting the 3ZR to be around $120’000 which is equivalent of 32’400 KWD. They seemed a lot more reasonable then the first one.

I made use of my Skype Phone while making my phone calls, this is a limited production machine and only a few dealerships will be getting it. I called a few that weren’t even getting it, and they sounded depressed when they answered. Whoever is going to be driving this machine will really enjoy it.
