PONTIAC SOLSTICE SD-290 RACE CONCEPT

Designed to evoke the emotions of classic sports cars, the Pontiac Solstice SD-290 race concept captures the purposeful design of vintage racecars. The design is dramatic, featuring a passenger cockpit tonneau cover and a driver windscreen, creating a pure racecar that looks ready to take the checkered flag even while sitting on the starting grid.

Aerodynamics have been improved and the SD-290'* weight reduced with the removal of the windshield, side glass, window regulator, convertible top, climate system and windshield wiper system. Complementing the design are new side fender gill panels, a new hood with heat extracting grilles and a competition red paint scheme.

Backing up the race-ready appearance is the available Club Sport Z0K suspension package and an all-business cockpit filled with auxiliary gauges, a roll bar and racing seat.
Vehicle highlights:

* Pontiac Solstice SD-290 race concept
* 2.0L Ecotec direct-injected and turbocharged generating 290 horsepower
* Five-speed manual transmission
* Weight reduction through installation of driver-side only windscreen and elimination of door glass/hardware, convertible top/hardware, HVAC system and wiper system
* Solo Performance cat-back exhaust system with center-mounted outlet
* KW Automotive coil-over suspension package
* Three-piston aluminum calipers with 13-inch rotors from Stainless Steel Brake Company
* Forged 19-inch wheels with Hoosier R6 racing tires
* New front fascia, grille inserts, hood and front fenders, leading to better aerodynamics
* Passenger-side hard tonneau cover
* Competition red exterior color
* Rear spoiler
* Tinted headlamp lenses
* Removable racing-style steering wheel
* Racing seat with four-point safety harness
* Chrome fire extinguisher
* Pegasus center console gauge package
* Driver'* roll bar

at over $80k, I would still buy one if I could, along with the 351 Ford Focus, but I would rather have a 401 for my Eagle

Mallett does some wicked upgrades for the Solstice/Sky. Yet another company that is a short jot from where I live (about 30 mi away from me). In fact, one of our members here work for Mallett.

Not only that, but I believe he is in charge of the Mallettsolstice/sky project.

And I don't believe that price for the Mallett conversion includes the price of the car.
