I think I’ve made it clear by now that I love any Camaro model out-there; sure, we could find flaws if we went looking for them, but there’s no doubt in my mind that, based on its good looks and legacy, this legendary muscle-car deserves praise. I especially hated Shia LaBeouf, for getting the privilege of driving that nasty and cool Camaro in The Transformers movie. But, it’s OK! Why? Well, feast your eyes on this baby!

The Chevrolet Camaro ZL1was already an awesome beast to take for a spin, but the people at Geigercars felt the need to introduce a new tuning program for the American muscle-car. It seems only right, since they have the Autobahn to put the pedal to the metal and they couldn’t have chosen a better car for the job. Not only that, but they’ve entitled this Camaro as the perfect driving machine. That says a lot!

The Camaro LS9 features a revised grille, racing-inspired tow hooks – can’t miss those – and 19- / 20-inch Goysar wheels with Michelin Cup tires. The team had also a sports exhaust system, a KW racing suspension and a beefier rear axle installed on this Chevy. But the best is yet to come, since this Camaro is hiding some surprises under its bonnet. The supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine has received new pistons, upgraded camshafts and a new crankshaft. Geiger also fitted a larger intercooler and optimized cylinder heads.

So, what do you figure this Chevy’s numbers are now? Well, the engine now develops 780 HP (574 kW) and 984 Nm (725 lb-ft) of torque. These staggering specs allow the coupe to accelerate from 0-100 km/h in 3.7 seconds, hit a top speed of 338 km/h (210 mph) and run the quarter mile in 11.9 seconds. Sounds like tons of fun! But, all at a cost, since the conversion costs €138,090 ($188,670) – yup, I wrote it and it wasn’t a mistake – which basically means the cost of the whole vehicle is €189,000 ($258,230). Now, you decide – worth it or not?!
