Looks like a badd *** car!

That racing stripe looks sharp!
500+hp! That car has to fly!
I am not sure the bigger tires and wheels will help handling though.

Yay for free publicity.

I hope the G8 GXP gets the LS7 or the new LS in the corvette ZR1.

Is it just me or does it look like Fiddy doesn't know an engine from toolshed when he looks at it and says how much power it has in the video?

....So it looks like Pontiac just took the GTO body (Holden) and made it into a 4 door doesn't it?

Well it'd have to be longer because it'* a 4 door, but I guess I just can't really tell dementions from the pics too well.

You're half correct. It'* a 4 door/updated platform of what the GTO was.

Holden/Vauxhall has sold this car for over a year now respectively IIRC though..

I seen this car in person today at the toronto auto show, the engine cover said 427 lsx 550 hp. Nice car indeed. I almost thought it was a BMW.
