Default It'* here! The G8 is here!!!!!!! (large pictures, 56k haha)

Actual production car! Was at the Woodward dream cruise.






Quote:
The base model features a 261 horsepower 3.6-liter V6 with 250 pound-feet of torque. A more powerful G8 GT delivers 362 horsepower and 391 pound-feet of torque thanks to a 6.0-liter V8.

The basic G8 features a five-speed automatic with manual mode, while the GT version is offered with either a six-speed automatic or six-speed manual gearbox.

Curb weight for the V6 model is 3,885 lbs, while the GT weighs just five pounds shy of 4,000. 18-inch wheels come standard, while 19-inch alloys can be ordered with the GT model.

The sedan rides on GM'* new Zeta rear-wheel-drive platform, which underpins the 2009 Camaro and the next-generation Impala, in addition to several other planned vehicles.

G8 deliveries are expected to begin in August a relatively short lead time made possible by some very effective badge engineering. Pricing has not been released but expect the GT to start in the low $30,000 range.

Interesting that the quote says deliveries in August. GM'* website still shows delivery in early 2008 (unless they're talking August '08 ). Nice looking car but I look forward to seeing a complete list of available options and colours. I expect they'll release a GXP version at some point in the future. Personally, i'll likely wait for this. Since they D/C'd the Bonneville, this is the first car Pontiac (or GM for that matter) has come up with that I've had any interest in. I was thinking I was done with GM. The poor corporate attitude towards customer support really turned me off the past few years.

Ooooh That looks better than the other pics I had seen of the concept. I actually like the looks of that. Now make it black Please tell me Jason Statham will be behind the wheel of one of those for the next "Transporter" movie

I agree, the real world pics make it look much better. If I were in the market for one (which I would be if I had the $), I would definitely wait for the GXP, you know they are going to bring it.

The chrome around the door handles is a nice touch! It sure beats the all chrome door handles you see.

I look forward to seeing those up close and personal.
