Does anyone want to give me $33K? $28K for the car, $5K for the M112 blower. C'mon, its called sponsership. You give the funds and i'll give you the entertainment of watching a supercharged N* walk Vipers and Vetts at the strip.

It was probably an executive or VIP'* car. It'* not uncommon for a leasing agency to purchase 1000s of cars and then lease them to large corporations. The corporations then give them to their VIPs as part of their compensation.

Honestly, a used GXP, even with 5640 miles, is a little over-priced at $29k (minus $5, + how many more $$$$ to transfer, taxes, license, etc...) -as long as you are travelling find a new one on a dealer lot with all the rebates etc to sell the new car of the previous model year? Not to mention the rebates that GM was/is (?) offering bringing the cost down to $30k'ish so as to compete with the Hemi 300C?
The value of the GXP is surely to drop even more when the Dodge Hemi Charger and Chrysler 300C SRT-8 with the 6.1L Hemi (rated at 425HP and 420 LB ft) are released this spring/summer.
I personally wouldn't want to pay more than $25k for a used GXP, even if I was a Billionare.
Must say though, that Crimson Tintcoat is sure beatiful -bright metallic red in sunlight, and dark maroon -almost brown in cloudy conditions.

Thats an interesting VW dealership...I see one Passat in the background of all the pics, all the rest are GM or Ford products



One lonely Passat....IMO VW makes great cars, so I wont bash em, but that GXP was probably a fleet car for some rich exec.

If i had paid over $35 large for a GXP i mighta been having second thoughts. Nice rusty rotors that things got.

All those Ford and GM cars are there for a reason. Maybe people are trading in a lot of them for Vdubs... However, don't you all think they'd be taking pix of the Used car, in the used car lot?
