German tuner GiegerCars has unveiled a Jeep Grand Cherokee that could rival
many supercars with its 708-horsepower V8 engine. The performance "jump" from
470 hp to 708 hp was made possible thanks to a 2.9-liter supercharger that comes
with an intercooler and internal engine modifications including uprated pistons.
Against the stopwatch, the supercharged GeigerCars version blasts to 60 mph in just 3.7 seconds, and on to 183 mph (295 km/h).
To ensure that this newfound performance can be safely transmitted to the tarmac, GeigerCars also offer performance suspension modifications with sport springs (1,250 euros) that drop the ride height, and uprated anti-roll bars (650 euros) to further reduce body roll in fast cornering.
Further gains in grip as well as looks come from the wheel/tire upgrade package consisting of 10.0x22-inch alloy wheels shod with 305/35 R22 rubber for 5,490 euros.
All this performance doesn't come cheap. In Europe, the chance to own the fastest badass Jeep Grand Cherokee on the block will set the customer back 23,900 euros (approx. $26,000) on top of the 66,900 euros ($73,700) for the stock Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT from GeigerCars.
