Default 2007 Pontiac Bonneville

Found this on GM'* website somewhere......

PONTIAC UNVEILS Bonneville SHOW CAR Enhancements hint at possible new offering in growing Bonneville portfolio
Seeking to build on the 25-percent retail sales gain by the G6 so far this year, Pontiac is revealing a new Bonneville GXP coupe show car at the upcoming New York International Auto Show. Designed to augment the Bonnevilles sleek styling with a more aggressive appearance and stance, the new Bonneville show car will test both media and public reaction before any final decision on production is made.
"Although the Bonneville performance series has been very successful in the past, we've never attempted to introduce a Bonneville on our largest volume vehicle and we want to be sure we do it right," said Dennis Maraone, Pontiac product director. "We believe the package of exterior, interior and performance enhancements we've put together on the Bonneville show car should appeal to 2+2 coupe enthusiasts."
Highlighting the exterior styling changes is a redesigned front fascia, featuring an integrated lower air dam and an aggressive chrome treatment of Pontiac'* signature twin-port grille, as well as a twin air scoop hood. Around back, the new rear fascia shows off the dual chrome-tipped exhaust and unique "hammerhead" spoiler. Side rocker panels, 19-inch wheels, vented cross-drilled brake rotors, and a 25-mni reduction in suspension height finish off the GXP'* ground-hugging appearance.
Inside, red accents give the Bonneville a sportier flavor than a standard Bonneville. The red chrome trim on the instrument cluster, center stack and door controls augments the red leather seat and door panel inserts.
Under the hood, the Bonneville uses a modified 3.9-liter V-6 engine mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Linking a ram air induction system with K&N air filter to a cat-back free flowing exhaust helps boost engine output to 270 horsepower (202 kw) and 259 Ib.-ft. of torque (358 Nm).
The Bonneville performance series was introduced in 2003 with the Bonneville SSEi. The Grand Prix GXP joined the line in 2005 and currently accounts for 30 percent of all Grand Prix retail sales. The Solstice GXP launches this fall.
Pontiac is a division of General Motors Corporation (NYSE: GM) and markets the G6 sedan, coupe and convertible, GTO, Solstice roadster, Torrent SUV, Grand Prix,Bonneville and Vibe. Later in 2006, Pontiac will introduce the Solstice GXP roadster and the G5 coupe. Pontiac sold more than 437,000 vehicles in 2005, ranking third among GM divisions in total sales. More information on Pontiac and its products can be found on the division'* website at www.pontiac.com and in Spanish at
www.pontiac.com/espanol.
