Press Release) Hummer H2 Kompressor
The market for American cars has fallen into a sort of lethargy
since the insolvency of Chrysler and General Motors. Vehicles like
the new Cadillac CTS-V or the new Camaro only find their way over
the big pond on the initiative of specialized dealers. But despite
the crisis and the uncertain future of the American automobile
industry, the fan base has not shrunk at all, in contrary the US car
scene is as lively as ever.
Karl Geiger, the founder of GeigerCars.de in Munich, has been
importing, tuning and customizing American vehicles for more than 30
years. Thanks to a perfect network, the newest models are always
available as the first in Europe on the large site in Truderinger
Strasse, despite the stuttering US market.
One major enthusiasm of the Bavarian is and remains customizing, and
once again Karl Geiger has achieved a masterpiece with this Hummer
H2 conversion. The paintwork answers to the name "Latte Macciatto"
and is a mix of a noble brown as the base color with many contrast
elements in crème-beige. The combination of wheels and tires is
exclusive, with 315/30R30 tires on gigantic 30-inch chrome wheels.
Behind the almost full wheel rims are Brembo brakes with 380 X 34 mm
riveted brake discs and 4-piston calipers at the front, and 380 X 32
mm discs with 2-piston calipers at the back. The chassis receives
additional stabilizers, rear axle struts and adjustable sports shock
absorbers, including lowering, which is certainly a good idea in
view of the extremely high performance of the Geiger Hummer H2.
As is traditional, Geiger has fitted the Hummer motor with a
supercharger, which increases the power to a full 547 PS at 5900 rpm
and the maximum torque to a brutal 763 Nm at 4500 rpm. So the US
giant covers the classical sprint from 0 to 100 kmh in slightly less
than 7 seconds, and the forward urge is only gently held back by the
air resistance at 228 kmh. In order that the outside world notices
the H2 not only visually but also aurally, a special in-house
stainless steel sport exhaust system gives out a real thunder.
The inside is pure luxury, because Karl Geiger lines every square
centimeter with the finest leather in brown and crème beige.
Dashboard, steering wheel, central console and door panels, all
glisten in the same color combination as the outside paintwork,
which makes the "Latte Macciatto" Hummer absolutely unique. Also
remarkable is the fact that Geiger has refinished altogether 400
small parts in the interior with piano lacquer. The A, B and C
columns and the underside of the roof have also been lined with
finely structured Alcantara. A pioneer sound system including SatNav
supplies the passengers with perfect sound and all important
information, while a roof-mounted monitor in the back is ideally
suited for playing DVDs.
