German-American automotive collaborations can go well, or they can go wrong. On the one hand you've got the Chrysler Crossfire, while on the opposite side stands GeigerCars.de, the German tuning house devoted to modifying American muscle, from the Ford GT and Corvette Z06 to the Hummer H2 and Ford F650 Super Duty. Okay, so sometimes Geiger goes a bit off the deep end with their aesthetic modifications, but we're willing to give them the benefit of the doubt here. After all, with Chevy's new pony car on the market, we couldn't expect them to keep their hands off it, now could we?

Geiger has taken the top-shelf Camaro SS and bolted a supercharger and custom exhaust to its 6.2-liter V8 to bring output up from the impressive standard 432 horsepower to a bonkers 568, and torque swells along with it from 420 pound-feet to 590.

To go with the added power and twist, Geiger has fitted 22-inch alloys to replace the stock 20-inchers (you know, just in case they weren't big enough already), housing 380mm brake discs with six pistons up front and 355mm discs with four pistons in the back. Heck, they've even mounted coilovers and adjustable anti-roll bars.

Geiger claims its modifications bring the Camaro's top speed up to an Autobahn-crunching 195 mph, and may just be enough to best that Texan group's twin-turbo V6 Camaro in their bid to outpace the Nissan GT-R at the 'Ring. After all, nobody knows the Green Hell like the Germans themselves, and a bit of American muscle certainly couldn't hurt. Follow the jump for the press release and check out the images in our high-res gallery below.
