I'm not sure if this will be a production car yet. The Pontiac site has this to say.

http://www.pontiac.com/pontiacjsp/pa...ept/bn_gxp.jsp

It'* not much different than any one us are doing to our Bonne'*.

I couldn't find the Grand Prix G/XP, but they did have the G-Force car listed.

Check out the 280x2 Supercharged Bad Boy. It looks like this thing can give us a run for our money!! It has an in-dash GPS and an awesome interior. Check out the racing pedals!

I actually e-mailed Pontiac about the new G/XP a few weeks ago. DeathRat is right, right now it is just a show car, and they currently have no plans to put it into production. This is a direct past from the e-mail:

Quote:
There are currently no plans to put the Bonneville G/XP into production. We recommend you keep in contact with your local Pontiac dealer for any updates. We have included a website link to help you locate a dealership in your area if you do not currently have one. Your dealership can also provide a test drive, pricing, and availability.
:( I am probably going to be in the market for a new car next summer possibly, I was going to consider one of those, but I doubt they will become a production model. If you really look at them though, they really arent that much different...

Take a 2000+ SSEi, buy a complete Carbon Fiber Dash Kit from Http://www.dashkit.com , tint the windows all around, tint the taillights like I did mine with Nightshades, Lower the car 1.5" with some custom Eibach springs, and lastly throw on a Thrasher Cold Air Intake, Cusom Exhaust (with polished roud tips), and a 3.4" supercharger pulley setup from Http://www.grandprixstore.com and what do you have? A Pontiac Bonneville G/XP !! without paying the extra $5,000 they are going to tag on to the sticker price most likely, if they ever build it.
