If you’re in Europe and you’ve been dying to get your hands on a Corvette ZR1, you may be in for quite a challenge. Shortage of the model’s demand is reported today. It might not be able to meet the European demand. No worries, GeigerCars came up with a solution. After all, they’re not nicknamed the “German tuner of American Iron” for nothing. The company tinkered with the Corvette Grand Sport and was able to boost it up to near-ZR1 levels.

This definitely made it possible for Gieger GS to hit the 60-mark in less than 4 seconds. It might not be quite as fast or powerful as the ZR1 supercar, but 639 horsepower and a 3.3 sprint are certainly figures worth boasting about.
