Nissan GT-R (R35)

CARBARN  | Nissan GT-R (R35) | one car manufacturer that is known worldwide for his car which has an average power above the average of the other car. and often driven by national and international riders. Since the concept car was shown at the 2005 Tokyo Auto Show we've drooled over every specification sheet and photo of the new GT-R. So it felt like Christmas when a Nissan GT-R, primed for review, showed up at our San Francisco office.

The GT-R is essentially a race car made for the street. Production cars don't generally squeeze 353kW out of a V6 — even a twin turbocharged one. And, like many a Ferrari, the transmission is mounted at the rear axle. The incredibly rigid suspension merely reinforces the impression that this is a race car that's been transmogrified for the road. Its look is both impressive and brutish, a theme that carries into the cabin and the driving feel.Surprisingly though, the GT-R is in no way stripped down, except maybe for the lack of an iPod port. Nissan put all of its excellent cabin electronics in the dashboard, which includes a hard-drive-based navigation system, an impressive stereo with plenty of digital music capability, and even Bluetooth mobile phone integration. These electronics share space with an incredibly detailed performance computer. This Nissan GT-R just doesn't compromise in its car tech. 

We couldn't wait to drive the real R35 Nissan GT-R, so months ago we picked up Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, which has a virtual GT-R. Unlike the in-game car, whose engine sounds hopelessly generic, the real GT-R's sound is dominated by its turbos. The 3.8-litre V6 isn't particularly loud or throaty, but when you give it some gas, the twin turbochargers whirr up like turbines. We tapped the gas while getting on a freeway, and by the time we had a chance to glance at the speedometer we were already doing 100km/h. The GT-R reaches 60 mph (96km/h) in 3.5 seconds Handling wise the GT-R is truly phenomenal. To get the GT-R out of sorts, it takes the kind of driving you can only do in a controlled environment. We threw it into one particularly good corner with some speed, and felt the grip loosen for a fraction of a second, then get taken up by the all-wheel drive. The GT-R uses a six-speed double-clutch manual transmission. There is no clutch pedal, as the dual clutches are controlled by computer. You can set it for either automatic shifting or manual, using the column-mounted paddle shifters to change gears. The car's automatic mode is designed for economy, rapidly shifting up to sixth gear even when you are only going 55km/h. In manual mode, the GT-R's shifts are visceral and solid. You can feel each one through the car as you push the left paddle for down or the right paddle for up. Step inside the cabin and you'll notice the many race car touches, like the deep front seats that embrace you. The flat, metallic spokes of the GT-R's sterring wheel handle mundane functions, like the cruise control and audio system. Our U.S.-spec GT-R was kitted with a 11 speaker Bose system, which sounded very good but it has a lot of road noise to conquer. The system didn't flinch at heavy bass and reproduced highs nicely, although the sound was slightly compressed. You can rip music to the GT-R's hard drive, which offers 9.3GB of space for music, or play MP3s from a CompactFlash card inserted in a slot in front of the shifter. There's also Bluetooth hands-free, a single CD slot plays MP3 CDs and an auxiliary input suitable for an MP3 player, but no iPod port. Satellite radio present on our review car obviously won't be making it down under. Also in doubt is the navigation system with integrated traffic reporting and text-to-speech. A feature unique to the GT-R is its fascinating and customisable performance computer. Polyphony Digital, the same company that developed Gran Turismo 5 Prologue, helped Nissan with the performance computer's design. You can access the performance computer by pushing the Function button to the left of the main LCD screen. A knob lets you scroll through the four customisable screens, marked 1 through 4, or the preset screens, marked A through G. These screens use a variety of graphs and virtual gauges for wheel turn, torque split, gas and brake pedal percentage, turbo boost, and many other performance parameters. There's also a stopwatch for timed runs.  

The GT-R might turn you into a more able driver than you might normally be but there's a downside: an extremely harsh ride. Unless you're trundling along a well-paved surface, the GT-R isn't a comfortable ride — this'll give Victorians something to crow about but Sydneysiders should keep this in mind before plonking down a deposit. The ride's harshness derives from the rigid suspension riding on low-profile tires wrapped around the 20-inch wheels; it also means a lot of general cabin noise and vibration. The car's very stiff suspension absorbs road imperfections nicely, keeping the car stuck to the pavement, but it doesn't coddle the driver at all. In corners, there is no lean and the steering is very responsive. The all-wheel drive system, which by default sends 100 per cent of the torque to the rear wheels can shift a full 50 per cent to the front when required, helps keep the car gripping in the corners and under acceleration. This all-wheel-drive system, along with traction control and suspension, uses computer-aided adjustment to keep it at optimum settings no matter the driving conditions. In hard cornering we felt a small but satisfying amount of slip that got taken up by the car's systems. There are three switches on the instrument panel that let you adjust various settings for torque, suspension, and traction control. Each can be pushed up to R (or race) mode, with accompanying red lights, but this is best saved for the track. We found city driving frustrating, as we could feel how much power we had on tap that couldn't be used. In these low-speed traffic situations, the automatic shifting felt rough, adding to the uncomfortable feeling of the suspension. There is a comfort mode for the suspension, but it doesn't smooth things over that much. As of this first take, fuel economy numbers for the Nissan GT-R haven't been published. But don't expect them to be good, considering the amount of power the engine produces. During our time with the car, we got about 16.8L/100km. One feature that would've liked, especially with the sharply angled rear window, is a rear view camera. This is one car you definitely don't want to back into a pole. 

The R35 Nissan GT-R is a technical tour de force, with evidence of brilliance throughout. Hopefully not too many of its tech goodies are chucked overboard by the time it finally goes on sale in Australia in 2009.



CARBARN  | New BMW X6 | This is one car that has a very elegant form. like the style but can be used jeep road and highway impressive luxury for its users. BMW has officially released images of its X6 M high-performance crossover, which will be on display at the New York Auto Show 2009. Built to compete with Prosche’s Cayenne Turbo and other high-performance crossovers, the X6 M may very well be in a class of it’s own. 

The X6 M uses a version of BMW’s latest twin-turbocharged 4.4-liter V8. Output is pegged at 555 horsepower at 5,750 rpm and peak torque is 501 pound-feet, available between 1,500 and 5,650 rpm. The car can accelerate from zero to 60 mph in 4.7 seconds, according to the automaker.

Honda FC Sport

CARBARN  | Honda FC Sport | this time one of the sports car manufacturer of Japan issued a new sports car, which is more friendly to the environment and also more dynamic and sport. this he Honda FC Sport Design Study Suggests Hydrogen Sports Car Future.   

 LOS ANGELES, Nov. 19, 2008 – Honda today revealed the Honda FC Sport design study model, a hydrogen-powered, three-seat sports car concept, at the 2008 Los Angeles Auto Show. The FC Sport emphasizes the design flexibility and potential of Honda's V Flow fuel cell technology – already deployed in the Honda FCX Clarity sedan – and reconfigures it into a lightweight sports car design with an ultra-low center of gravity, powerful electric motor performance and zero-emissions. The design study concept is inspired by supercar levels of performance through low weight and a high-performance, electrically driven fuel cell powertrain. "The Honda FC Sport explores how to satisfy automotive performance enthusiasts in a world beyond petroleum," said Dan Bonawitz, vice president of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. "People who love sports cars will still have a reason to love in a hydrogen-powered future."  

The high-output Honda fuel cell powertrain and a sleek, aerodynamic body contribute to the vehicle's performance potential. A modular approach to fuel cell component packaging and the electric drivetrain contribute to the FC Sport's low center of gravity with the majority of vehicle mass distributed between the axles, creating the balanced weight distribution sought after in sports cars. The ideal placement of the Honda V-Flow fuel cell stack and related components demonstrates the benefits of a platform-specific, hydrogen-powered fuel cell powertrain. The FC Sport is configured to accommodate a custom-formed high-power fuel cell stack, located between the rear seats, and a battery pack placed low in the middle of the vehicle. The electric motor resides just forward of the rear axle. Two fuel storage tanks, visible from above, are located above the rear axle. The optimal placement of fuel cell components for performance also allows for a relatively large passenger cabin by conventional supercar standards with enough space for three seating positions. The interior layout focuses primarily on the driver with a racecar-like center driving position. The enclosed canopy opens upward from the rear to allow for entry and exit. Two rear passenger seats flank the driver's left and right side.  

The sleek, low-profile body is designed to convey a high-technology appearance with sculpting that combines angular shapes in the front of the vehicle that taper into geometric, hex forms in the rear. The rear hex forms house cooling radiators for the fuel cell. Formula 1-style barge boards behind the front wheels enhance high speed aerodynamics and convey the vehicle's racing pedigree. The hydrogen storage tanks, visible from the rear deck, showcase the FC Sports fuel cell technology in much the same way that a "naked bike" motorcycle showcases its engineering technology. he glacier white body color conveys the FC Sport's clean environmental aspirations while the dark wheels and deeply tinted glass provide a symbolic contrast befitting of the vehicle's unique combination of clean power and high performance. Green construction techniques further contribute to a reduced carbon footprint. An organic, bio-structure theme is carried through to the body construction where exterior panels are intended to use plant-derived bio-plastics. The Advanced Design Studio of Honda R&D Americas, in Pasadena, California, developed the FC Sport design study with the primary objective of using existing fuel cell technology as the basis for an ultimate Honda sports car. Designer Jason Wilbur led the design efforts. Honda R&D Americas, Inc. began its operations in California in 1975 with local market research activities and has steadily grown its capabilities over the past 33 years to include all aspects of new vehicle design and development. Recent development efforts include trend-setting products such as the Honda Pilot, Ridgeline, Element, Civic Coupe and Civic Si. 

Toyota Volta

CARBARN  | New Toyota Volta | hi toyota new cars now there's more to sport than the previous one, this car is suitable for young people, and describes. In genetics, a hybrid is the result of combining elements from different species. When it comes to cars and trucks, a hybrid refers to a vehicle whose powertrain combines the aspects of different technologies (i.e. gasoline and electric) to improve efficiency and reduce emissions. 

In automotive terms, hybridization is nothing new. Hybrid cars and trucks that combined an electric motor with a gasoline engine date back to the turn of the 20th century (see Back to the Past). Hybrid diesel-electric locomotives have been in operation for years, and diesel-electric buses began to appear in the 1970s. These days, automotive choices that combine two or more sources of power are known as hybrid vehicles. The most common is the electric hybrid, which melds a gasoline engine with an electric setup (electric motor, charging system, and a battery/storage system).

Land Rover LRX concept car

CARBARN  | Land Rover LRX concept car | This is a very luxurious car. addition can be used on urban roads, this car is suitable in all fields, such as mud, snow, mountains because this car has a shape other than a sport also has a powerful engine for the men. Land Rover unveils a vision of its future at the NAIAS (Detroit Show) in January 2008, with the world debut of the LRX concept - a bold evolution of Land Rover design that signals the brand's shift into new areas of the market, while remaining true to its core values. As the company prepares to celebrate its 60th anniversary during 2008, the three-door LRX, with its more compact size, lighter weight and sustainability-focused technologies, clearly addresses the needs of a changing world. "The LRX concept delivers the powerful message that we are as serious about sustainability as we are confident about the continuing relevance and desirability of our vehicles," says Phil Popham, Land Rover's managing director. "LRX is in every respect a Land Rover, but it's a very different Land Rover. "LRX has unmistakable Land Rover design and the breadth of capability that you'd expect from our vehicles. But it carries those essentials into a segment where the brand has never been before, and with a proposed level of efficiency that would make it one of the cleanest vehicles in its class. It is Land Rover's way of affirming the brand's responsible approach to future product development. At this stage, LRX is purely a concept, designed to help us develop our thinking as well as gauge customer reaction - but this feels like a hugely exciting direction to take."  

LRX is described as a cross-coupĂ© and dramatically extends the scope of what Land Rover represents. Though smaller than the Freelander 2 / LR2, LRX was conceived as a premium car, designed to appeal to new customers in the luxury and executive sector - those who want many of the benefits of a 4x4 and the presence of a larger vehicle, but in a more compact package. The first all-new Land Rover revealed since Gerry McGovern became the company's design director, LRX is a natural extension of the Land Rover range, complementing the existing models and helping to define a new segment. Its many recognisable Land Rover design cues include bold new interpretations of the signature clamshell bonnet, the floating roof and the solid 'wheel-at-each-corner' stance. "LRX is a design born out of passion for the brand, but it is different, relevant, engaging and exciting - because Land Rover has never built ordinary cars," says Gerry McGovern. "LRX has a highly desirable identity and the design alludes strongly to its capability, while clearly underlining our forward-looking philosophy - it's a Land Rover that would be comfortable on Bond Street or Fifth Avenue, but wouldn't flinch at getting its wheels dirty." Its compact size is one of its greatest assets, which will appeal to anyone who wants the versatile ability of an agile 4x4 with the cachet of the Land Rover name. In addition, its lower weight and the reduced aerodynamic drag resulting from the smaller frontal area give significant gains in fuel efficiency and reduced CO2 emissions. The LRX concept also adopts intelligent power management systems and other technologies first shown by Land Rover in the Land_e concept in 2006. Further details of LRX's powertrain and sustainability technologies will be released at the Detroit Show. 

The positioning of LRX could be described as moving subtly from traditional SUV to crossover, with its more car-like appearance and dynamics that are sportier and on-road biased. But while its character is underlined by excellent agility, handling and performance, LRX also promises the widest breadth of capability in the class. To help achieve this, it has full-time four-wheel drive and Hill Descent Control, as well as a special version of Land Rover's acclaimed Terrain Response system, to optimise traction on difficult surfaces ranging from icy roads to wet grass, gravel and snow. But to reflect LRX's on-road bias, Terrain Response also gains a new 'Eco' mode for lower emissions during urban driving.  The design of LRX was developed entirely in-house, driven by a passion to create a car that truly represents Land Rover's future thinking. It has a very dynamic profile, with a distinctive taper to the floating roofline and a muscular shoulder running the length of the car, accentuated by the rising beltline. The glazing wraps right around LRX, with no exposed pillars, creating a bold design graphic. The architectural structure of the upper body can be glimpsed through the windows and roof - echoing some of the best contemporary buildings. Pushing the wheels out to the four corners helps give the car its purposeful stance, and its front-end design makes a powerful and instantly recognisable statement of Land Rover's identity. There are new interpretations of Land Rover's traditional clamshell bonnet, distinctive headlamps, jewel-like, tapering blade indicator clusters front and rear, and subtle side vents. LRX's wheelarches are wide but softly integrated, housing 20-inch alloy wheels. The carefully sculpted corners dramatically reduce the car's visual overhangs front and rear. With its perforated two-bar grille, door releases concealed in the car's shoulders and graphic details 'punched out' of the smooth body surfaces rather than overlaid on them, LRX is beautifully proportioned and elegantly simple - but very dramatic and distinctive.

The interior of the LRX concept clearly demonstrates how a compact Land Rover can still be roomy, practical, versatile - and sophisticated. The impeccably executed cabin features a combination of soft leathers in rich tan and dark chocolate, with polished aluminium details. The 'fast' sloping architecture of the centre console reflects LRX's sporty dynamics, as does the distinctive binnacle over the instrument cluster. The electronic display uses 'floating' LCD graphics to create a three-dimensional look that can be personalised for different drivers, as well as interacting with LRX's touch-screen display. The instrument graphics present data in layers depending on their level of importance, to give maximum relevant information with minimum distraction. When appropriate, displayed information transfers between the main instrument cluster and the touch screen. Further adding to LRX's involving personality, the different drivetrain modes are matched by changes in the cabin's background lighting colour - green in economy, red in sports and blue in standard mode.

Although LRX is compact, clever use of space makes it impressively roomy, and many neat design touches maximise its practicality. A second touch-screen area gives a fully interactive display and control for LRX's iPhone docking facility. On either side of the horizontally-split, power-operated tailgate, removable and power-adjustable speakers include an iPod docking station. There is also a coolbox, plus a bottle chiller that can be clipped to the lowered tailgate. This also has integral aluminium cupholders between two padded seating areas, for a new twist on the idea of a traditional Land Rover tailgate lunch. Every interior design detail combines to maximise both actual space and the feeling of space. The clear roof is supported by a 'spider' frame running into the A-pillars, and the rear quarter pillars have glazed apertures for improved visibility and a lighter feel in the cabin. LRX's distinctive seats 'float' on individual plinths and have open frameworks to reinforce the impression of light, airy interior space - while also creating useful under-seat and under-floor stowage areas. The clever, powered mechanism of the seat backs maximises interior flexibility and helps create a large, flat storage area when needed, complete with multiple tie-down options. The generous load space and through-loading option also help accommodate bikes, skis or surfboards. "Flexible load-carrying capacity is fundamental to the concept of LRX," says Gerry McGovern. "With this car, we've interpreted the idea of Land Rover 'breadth of capability' to be more about versatility and on-road dynamics than about ultimate off-roading. This meets the needs of the new customers that we believe would be attracted by this type of car; they will not only appreciate LRX's flexibility, but will also recognise that it has been packaged with the highest levels of precision."

The structures of the seats and instrument panel are elegant enough to be left exposed - one novel approach that Land Rover's designers have taken to reduce vehicle weight. Another example is replacing the glass for the side windows and roof with polycarbonate, which is around 40% lighter. Even the choice of premium-quality trim materials reflects Land Rover's deep thinking about sustainability, with vegetable-tanned leather (chromium-free, so better for recycling), extensive use of aluminium (both lightweight and readily recyclable) and carpeting made of felt from sustainable sources. And the luxurious, vanilla-coloured 'fine suede' on the door inserts and headliner is a 100% recycled material made from used plastic bottles. "We are determined to make sustainability a key element in our future product design and the way we do business, while still creating vehicles that have a strong emotional appeal as well as fulfilling people's practical needs," says Phil Popham. "No single technology delivers all the answers to whole-life sustainability, but the LRX concept brings together some of the ideas for the future that interest us, integrating them into a car that we believe represents an exciting way forward for Land Rover."


CARBARN  | AUDI R8 ABT | issued a new audi sports car a more sophisticated and luxurious for young people today. This is a sports car and this car has had a very tough car engine is named BY AUDI R8 ABT. That is, modified engines, suspensions, interior trims, aerodynamics, and exterior highlights to distinguish them from the standard factory models.

 Take ABT Sportsline’s R8, with the 4.2-litre V8, which Car Advice drove through Germany’s mountainous Allgau-region earlier this year . Easily one of the quickest accelerating supercars we drove on this year’s Full Throttle Tour, which included many of the world’s fastest cars, but it was the R8′s cornering ability through the switchbacks, which was on a different level to anything else we drove. It was as though the car had Formula One levels of down force going on, such was its adhesion to the tarmac at colossal speeds through the bends.

ABT have been working on Audi’s latest version of the V10 powered R8, and we have no doubt, that this will be something very special indeed. They have managed to extract a whopping 600bhp (it sounds better than 441kW) from the 5.2-litre engine, which means the 0-100km/h sprint will take just 3.8 seconds and top speed increases slightly to 322km/h from around 320km/h in the ABT R8 with the V8. But it’s a whole lot more than that, equally important is the race like bodywork kit, designed by the DTM guys within ABT. For those of you in Australia and outside of Germany, DTM stands for Deutsche Tourenwagen Meisterschaft, which is their Touring Car Championship and Audi cars tuned by ABT, are the current leaders in the series. ABT’s version of the V10 powered R8 is a significant power upgrade on the standard Audi car, with an additional 55kW of power on board and should be a treat to drive.

Ferrari 599 GTO

CARBARN  | Ferrari 599 GTO | Ferrari have been very popular throughout the country in the world sports car berlambangkan black horse is issued the latest sports car, no less with the previous sports car .  The 599 GTO benefits directly from the carry-over of the Ferrari racing experience representing the most advanced technology applied to a road car thanks to its numerous cutting edge features. With a Fiorano lap time of 1’24″ the 599 GTO is the fastest road-going Ferrari ever. A mid front engine V12 berlinetta, the 599 GTO belongs to the exclusive series of 599 cars. The model is built on the platform of the production vehicles, but developed with a completely different and revolutionary concept, more closed to the 599 XX – the sport prototype designed for track only.

The 599 GTO represents the new pinnacle of sports car performance and was designed specifically for the most enthusiastic drivers who know how to appreciate and exploit its power. It has an unprecedented weight-to-power ratio that has been achieved thanks to new materials and technologies that have contributed to slash 100 kg from its overall weight and the aerodynamic package doubling the down force of the 599 GTB Fiorano.the 670 CV V12 engine derives from the 599 XX but it is homologated for road usage. The car boasts also the new generation carbon ceramic brakes (CCM2). The electronic control systems allow the car to be exceptionally responsive and particularly suited to owners capable of making the very most of its level of performance.  The car’s name recalls both the Ferrari 599 GTB Fiorano and the 599 XX sharing with the last one the same 5999 cc engine displacement. GTO stays for “Gran Turismo Omologata” and represents a landmark in Ferrari’s history. The abbreviation was first adopted in 1962 for the 250 GTO, long considered the finest Ferrari ever built, and then revived for the 1984 GTO, often unofficially referred as the 288 GTO and credited to have invented the modern supercar concept. The 599 GTO engine is derived from the 599 XX, with all the necessary modifications to make the vehicle compliant to the road homologation. The 599 GTO is powered by a 65-degree V12, it has a 6-litre displacement and, with an output of 670 CV at 8,250 rpm, it boasts a power output of 112 CV/liter and a weight-to-power ratio of just 2.23 kg/CV. The engine provides a constant crescendo of power and torque all the way up to the rev limiter at 8,400 rpm. Torque peaks at 620 Nm at 6500 rpm with impressive flexibility even at low to medium revs and incredible pulling power all the way to the redline. Meticulously selected materials and geometries ensure that the engine sound inside the car is carefully controlled to balance the intake sound with the exhaust, thus giving the driver plenty of feedback. The sound filtering through the cockpit is now eight decibel louder; it is clear and powerful regardless of engine speed or driving conditions.

Aston Martin DB9

CARBARN  | Aston Martin DB9 | Aston martin now has issued its latest sports car more sophisticated and sports to accompany your day This car named the Aston Martin DB9 .  The Aston Martin DB9 is a modern interpretation of a traditional Aston Martin sports car, representing a contemporary version of classic DB design elements and characteristics. 

"We wanted an elegant, beautiful car - in keeping with Aston Martin tradition," says Director of Design Henrik Fisker. "I was of course acutely aware that Aston Martin is renowned for its superb styling. It has launched some of the most beautiful sports and GT cars ever seen." Key traditional Aston Martin features incorporated into the Aston Martin DB9 include the distinctive grille, side strakes and clean, crisp, uncluttered lines. Clean and elegant surfacing "Aston Martins are not edgy cars - they don't have sharp surfaces or pronounced power domes," says Fisker. "The bodywork is elegant and gently curved, like a supremely fit person, with great muscle tone. But it is not like a body builder, who is bulky and out of harmony."

Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss New

CARBARN  | Mercedes-Benz SLR Stirling Moss New | Stirling Moss New McLaren SLR Mercedes-Benz sports car is very trendy today the young people really like this car The exclusive SLR Stirling Moss rounds off the current SLR family and is limited to 75 units. It is priced at 750,000 euros. The new SLR Stirling Moss is characterised by the most sophisticated technology and a breathtaking design which reinterprets the SLR legend. With 478 kW/650 hp the SLR Stirling Moss accelerates its V8 supercharged engine from standstill to 100 km/h in less than 3.5 seconds, and has a top speed of 350 km/h – no other series-production car is at the same time so open and so fast. This extreme concept makes the new high-performance sports car a legitimate bearer of the name of the British motor racing legend and Mille Miglia record-holder Stirling Moss, who drove the legendary Mercedes-Benz SLR racing cars from victory to victory during the 1950s.

A successful collaboration of engineering which is demonstrated far beyond the relatively ancillary exclusion of a windscreen, the SLR Stirling Moss is truly an equal celebration of McLaren’s both past and present. Thus in keeping with its status as a rare breed, production of the SLR Stirling Moss will be limited to only 75 units and, to further prevent your uncultured, peasant hands from touching it, each unit will be priced at a cool $1.04 million (€750,000).

The new SLR Stirling Moss is the kind of high-calibre speedster coveted by the sporting gentry and enthusiasts alike. At the same time it is a collector’s item which marks the pinnacle of an era and, for the foreseeable future, at least, the final curtain for the SLR.


CARBARN  | HUMMER H3 GT ALPHA | Hummer car is very expensive car The Hummer H3 is still the baby Hummer, shorter, less powerful but also lighter than its bigger brothers the H1 and H2. German Hummer experts Geigercars have successfully tuned up the H2 to be the fastest Hummer on the planet with a whopping 700 hp and a 0 – 100 km/h time of 6.5 seconds.

Time for the H3 to receive a similar treatment. The 2.3 tonne SUV has had its 5.3 liter V8 Vortec engine remapped through the Geiger Tuning Kit to produce 300 hp (instead of the factory 242 hp). The Tuning Kit consists of new engine software, a sport air filter and stainless steel performace exhaust system, resulting in a top speed of 124 mph. The sport suspension lowers the H3, improving its road going behaviour while not impeding its off-road abilities too much. A performance brake system ensures that there is enough stopping power available to keep driving this little monster safe.

The exterior has received it own fair share of upgrades with a very distinctive GT design. The racing stripes are available in any color and the body kit in the car's chosen color. There is a choice of 23 (305/35-23) or 24 (305/35-24) inch alloy wheels.

Inside you will find leather seats, plenty of carbondesign applications and full blown multimedia system with personal DVD players in every headrest. Interestingly enough Geigercars also has a natural gas kit available for the gas guzzler, lowering carbon dioxide emissions by 20% while the 75 liter gas tank can be refilled for just EURO 40, without sacrificing its performance increase!
