The 2019 C7 Corvette ZR1 won’t be heading to Europe when it launches later this year, which may leave a small group of buyers unsatisfied. Thankfully, the folks at Geiger have a solution. This is the Geiger Corvette Z06 Carbon 65 Edition, and it makes more power than a ZR1.
Geiger Cars bumped the power up to 770 horsepower, thanks to a larger 2.3-liter supercharger unit, and it will reach 62 mph in just 2.9 seconds. The power figure means business, but so does the rest of the car, too.
There’s also a safety harness and roll cage, and Geiger installed its own rear sub-frame with an integrated diffuser. The front end boasts a new grille and fascia parts for improved airflow. Buyers can also choose from three different rear wings that include a full racing setup. Elsewhere, the track-focused Geiger Corvette features revised suspension knuckles, more powerful brakes and modifications to the cooling system for more reliable laps at the owner’s favorite circuit. Speaking of circuits, Geiger will throw in two days of driving at the Nürburgring as well.
For our European friends, it’s likely the closest they’ll get to a ZR1 proper, but it won’t be cheap. Pricing starts at €136,000 ($166,524), but climbs to €189,000 ($231,419) with a full option sheet.
