Aug 31 2006 - GeigerCars New Hummer H2
If Hannibal would live today, he would
probably use no elephants for the crossing of the alps but the
HUMMER H2 from GeigerCars.de which was named after him.
Europe's biggest HUMMER dealer and also leading European customizer
of American cars turns the H2 into a true King Size monster: The
GeigerCars.de HANNIBAL was lifted by 18 centimeters using a special
suspension. The additionally mounted off road tires of the dimension
38 x 15.50 R 20 and the additional lights on the roof also
contribute a great deal to the all-wheel-drive car's height of 244
centimeters which is just as high as a soccer goal. Of course the
GeigerCars.de HANNIBAL is powered by a high performance
The V8 supercharger engine
delivers a maximum power output of 598 hp / 440 kW and produces a
peak torque of 780 Nm. Due to the all-terrain pattern of the tires,
the maximum speed of the HANNIBAL is electronically restricted to

GeigerCars.de HANNIBAL special suspension is designed to lift the H2
bodywork by about 18 centimeters using a steel-made auxiliary frame,
special shock absorbers and springs on the front axle and a
custom-made air suspension on the rear axle. As a result ground
clearance is increased from standard 25 to 40 plus centimeters which
further improves cross-country mobility of the HUMMER. To reduce the
rolling motion of the bodywork, they also installed stronger
anti-sway bars front and rear.
The spectacular GeigerCars.de HANNIBAL look is further shaped by the
enormous tires, which find room inside the additional fender
flarings. The three-piece 12Jx20 chrome wheels are shod with 38 x
15.50 R 20 off road tires. The all-terrain tread of the HANNIBAL
tires also contributes to a further improved cross-country mobility
of the American all-wheel-drive car. Due to safety reasons, the
maximum speed of the H2, which would be about 225 km/h with this
engine, had to be limited to 160 km/h.
The Kompressor 780 version gets its type designation from its peak
torque of 780 Nm, which is delivered at 4,700 rpm by the
supercharged six-litre V8 engine. The maximum power of 598 hp / 440
kW is available at 5,200 revs. The
engine conversion based on the Hummer H2 motor costs 25,900 Euros
and doesn't only contain the supercharger and the intercooler but
also a lot of work on the inner life of the engine. The
modifications include the machining of the two cylinder-heads, the
installation of a sport camshaft and a reinforced valve gear and
special exhaust manifolds, metal-bed catalysts and a GeigerCars.de
high performance exhaust system.
of a curb weight exceeding 3,000 kilograms, the GeigerCars.de
HANNIBAL with geigercars.de Kompressor 780 drivetrain and a modified
automatic transmission realizes road performance which were hard to
imagine until now for a car of this kind: The sprint from 0 - 100
km/h only takes 8.5 seconds.
retail price of 14,900 Euros there is alternatively available the
GeigerCars.de Kompressor 740 performance kit, This supercharger kit
doesn't contain the modifications on the inner life of the V8 engine
but also comes with a cat-back sport exhaust system. After the
conversion the Hummer H2 delivers 532 hp / 392 kW and 740 Nm of
A high performance brake system on the front axle with perforated
and vented 380 millimeter discs and 6-pot fixed calipers is
recommended for any H2 due to its improved stability.
The spectacular look of the GeigerCars.de HANNIBAL is rounded out
using high-polished GeigerCars.de stainless steel parts. The range,
which is also available for every standard H2, contains a solid
front protection bar guarding the chrome radiator grille, an
additional front bumper with integrated underride guard and ram
protection bars for the rear bumper.

design. In addition, GeigerCars.de also offers state-of-the-art GPS
navigation technology or night vision systems for the HUMMER H2.
