Recreating the Bonnevillle GXP Concept
 
Just curious to know what the differences were between the Bonneville GXP concept car, and the actual production version. I know it had 19 inch wheels on the concept. Looks like different grills too. Thought it had a Corsa exhaust

Any performance differences? Mechanical?

I'm interested to know what it would take to recreate the concept car.

Well, I think I will pass on the 4.4 litre version of the N* that was in the concept.

Grille looks different.

Anyone know what wheels those are? They look familiar....

Sprot Edition KV5's from tire rack are the closest you can get

Thanks!
Looks like they have a 19X 8.5 with a 38 mm offset and a 19x9.5 with a 45 mm offset. Anyone know what the stock offset of a GXP wheel is? At the stock wheel is 8 inches wide, right?

I know you want to get as close to the Concept as possible with the wheels, but to be honest if it's gonna be a daily driver make the jump to 20's. That one inch will make a huge difference in tire price.

What is the benefit of 20's over 15's or 16's, besides looks?

less sidewall flex
