Default Althoug the GXP'* around are nice lookin cars.....

I still like the concept better and wish this was the production model

I guess the reason why they didnt want this car out is becasue of the factory tint.

the grille of the concept looks like the 2000+ ssei and they did a totally different design from the production

they should have kept the 1.5 lowered ride height too

I think it had the Gen5 blower. :drools:

That would have owned the current GXP.

This Bonneville G/XP and the G-Force Grand Prix probably would have been the owners of the road if they would have been production models.
