Hummer GeigerCars H2 GT

The Hummer GT from GeigerCars.de isn't just an eye-catcher due to its gullwing doors. The SUV rolls on giant 30-inch wheels and can accelerate up to 140 mph due to its 556 bhp supercharged engine. The complete car is available for a retail price starting from 133,900 Euros ($166,000) in Germany.

The bodywork of the Hummer H2 from GeigerCars.de is upgraded with a light blue / orange Heritage special paint and gullwing doors. The front doors can be alternatively opened conventionally or to the top like a guillotine.

The Hummer GT from GeigerCars.de is a sly one with its engine. The six-liter engine is upgraded by the GeigerCars.de engine experts using a supercharger kit and a stainless steel high performance exhaust system including special manifolds and a specially calibrated ECU.

The modifications increase the peak power to 556 bhp while the maximum torque is increased to 565 lb-ft. The road performance is excellent; the heavy SUV only takes 7.6 seconds from 0-60 mph while the top speed is about 140 mph.

GeigerCars.de also modified the H2 suspension to be able to safely control these high speeds. The most obvious conversion is the fitting of chromed and forged GeigerCars.de wheels in 10Jx30 dimension all around. Pirelli contributed the matching high performance street tire with the Scorpion Zero in 315/30 R30 size. This set of wheels with tires is offered for a retail price of 28,000 Euros ($35,000). Of course GeigerCars.de also offers many other wheel/tire combinations in 20, 22, 24, 26 and 28 inches diameter.

GeigerCars.de also lowers the HUMMER H2 by about 4 inches and installs sport anti-sway bars for reduced silt tilt at fast cornering.

The GeigerCars.de high performance brake system with 380 millimeter perforated and vented discs and 8-pot fixed calipers on the front axle provides enormous deceleration performance and resistance. The sport brake system costs 10,268 Euros ($12,500).

The cockpit of the GeigerCars.de HUMMER GT fascinates with Carbondesign applications, color-coded instruments and a multimedia system including a navigation system, DVD player, TV receiver and two LCD-screens which are integrated in the dashboard and a specially designed roof console.
