It was a GXP...... but not a Bonneville.

The Grand Prix GXP runs in the 14.3s ................
Not far behind big brother GTO who is like high 13s.... 13.7-13.9

Thanks for the clarification. What is the E.T. supposed to be for a stock Bonneville GXP?

I agree. They may be quick now. But wait for when they hit 100K and that pin that shuts off 4 cylinders for cruising breaks and the engine needs a total rebuild.
Don't forget what great trannys chrysler produces

GTO is quicker under good circustances, the 05 is MUCH faster.

If you don't have wheel hop.

all the cars on that show were running slow, high elevation maybe...the gto runs low 13'* on average for a 05. ive got that show saved on my computer, its pretty badass they must have went through at least 2 sets of tires on those gto'*. it was the grand prix gxp too, ls4 and beefed up 4t65hd (stonger than the 4t65hd used in the 04 l67 cars).

cadillac had cylinder shutoff in the 70'*, its nothing new, and saves you 1-2mpg....whoopee. but it helps sell v8 cars.

the wheel hops not a big problem for the 05'*, and easily fixed, unlike the cts-v

BMR does have an anti-wheel hop kit. I've seen a CTS-V with it installed at a dealer. Also had a Corsa Exhaust... I LOVE the brakes on those machines as well. I drooled a lot that day.
