GeigerCars, a long-time German specialist in contemporary American muscle machines, has focused their attention on the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat. The stock Hellcat with 707 hp and 650 lb-ft would be more than enough for most people, but the tuning firm decided to up the ante with a 75 hp boost to the supercharged HEMI engine.
This additional power comes by way of remapped ECU software, as well as a stainless sports exhaust system with valve control, and a free-flow air cleaner.
An advanced KW coilover with damping adjustment optimizes handling. The suspension rests on black 22" Geiger alloy wheels shod with 265/30Z and 295/25Z tires.

The SRT Hellcat has been the performance flagship of the two-door Dodge Challenger range since 2014. Now, a four-door version of one of America’s most potent muscle cars, the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat steps up to the plate.
The good news is that the Dodge Charger SRT Hellcat is now available in Germany thanks to Munich-based US car specialists GeigerCars. And for whose are not content to leave the car in standard form, GeigerCars also offer their very own special uprated version.
• 6.2-litre supercharged V8 with power upgraded to 782 hp
• 22-inch Alloy wheels (5,900 euro*) and KW coilover suspension (4,900 euro*)
• Complete vehicle for 110,500 euro*
A factory fresh SRT Hellcat comes with a rousing 707 hp supercharged V8 motor, making it the most powerful production four-door saloon in its class. However, Karl Geiger and his team decided to take the car’s performance to the next level.
For the comparatively modest sum of 7,900 euro*, the GeigerCars performance kit takes output into the super sportscar realm, with a bombastic 782 hp. The conversion includes a stainless steel sports exhaust system with valve control, free-flow air cleaner, and ECU software remap.
The extra horsepower is accompanied by a beefier torque curve that now peaks with 923 Nm. This ensures savage acceleration right up to a top speed over 330 km/h, with the 0-100 km/h sprint covered in just 3.6 sec using the factory Launch Control feature.
While the four-door Hellcat visually benefits from the latest revised, sharper factory front end with its distinctive C-shaped LED daytime running lights, the GeigerCars treatment leaves no doubt about its potency and exclusivity.
Gloss black Geiger alloy wheels in 9.0 and 10.5x22 inch sizes, wrapped in 265/30ZR22 and 295/25ZR22 tyres put a larger footprint on the road for 5,900 euro* set of wheels and tyres, and help to give the car its distinctive GeigerCars identity.
The other half of the handling and grip equation is the KW coilover suspension with damping adjustment separately for rebound and compression in low-speed range and high-speed range that ensures the car stays tied down when the tarmac turns twisty. This costs 4,900 euro*, including installation and set-up.
For another 4,900 euro*, the Special Hellcat Green paintwork adds the finishing touch to this cars striking appearance. The Dodge Charger Hellcat SRT has a base price of 86,900 euros*, and the complete GeigerCars version can be yours for 110,500 euro*, an unbeatable offer considering its phenomenal performance.
