My brother recently purchased a 2006 GTO. It has the LS2 (Vette motor) that makes 400HP.
Here'* a shot of it next to my mom'* new GP GXP. My family has been getting a lot of new cars lately as you can see.
This car is absolutely brutal. Never in my life have I driven anything so sweet sounding and downright fierce. The LS2 gives you goosebumps when you rev the engine up. The exhaust sounds amazing.
My bro got a special apperance package which gives a different front and rear bumper, rocker panels, exhaust tips, and grilles (the dealer didn't put on the grilles by accident so those are the stock ones for now).
The GTO is just plain fast. I had a little fun with it today and lets just say ... I was holding on to the steering wheel pretty hard. Enough said.
I always thought the L67 motors made a lot of torque. They do, but the LS2 is a completely different beast. What a motor...
I thought I'd share the good news.
