This is a photo shoot of a Ford GT 1000 built by Geigercars, the tuner from Munich, Bavaria in Germany. Upgrades were done by NG Motorsports who later did a photoshoot with photographer Matthias Moos revealing its new power stance and look. The engine upgrades with included mapping and enhancing the supercharger resulted to the Ford GT punching out 711 HP in total.
Sometime back when Geigercars began building programs for the Ford GT, they provided one of the most powerful packages alongside tuners like Hennessey. The managed to give a 29% increment in power over the stock output. This was 701hp (523 kW) and peak torque of 837 Nm (617 ft-lbs) and this resulted to a 0-100km/h time of 3.5 seconds and a top speed of 340 km/h. They managed to do this through the use of a larger supercharger with increased boost pressure from 0.8 to 1.25bar. The ECU was also re-calibrated to suit the new demands.
The Ford GT is however naturally one of the few American cars that will comfortably dine in the same table with Italian sports cars or even those from Deutschland. With it’s 5.4 liter modular V8 engine it kicks out 550 hp and 500 lb-ft of torque comfortably at 3750 rpm. A Ricardo six-speed manual transmission with limited slip differential is able to give it a top speed of 330 km/h.
The prices for one of the 4038 units produced will vary, a complete stock one is above the $100K mark but considering that the MSRP had reached $149,995 in 2005, prices must be around that mark. Don’t forget to check out Matthiasmoos.de.Car.Shootings!
