Default 2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP-R Concept @ 2006 SEMA

2007 Pontiac Solstice GXP-R Concept @ 2006 SEMA



Press Release:
Quote:
PONTIAC SOLSTICE GXP-R
Sleek and seductive in its original form, Pontiac Solstice GXP-R ratchets up the head-turning quotient – as well as performance – a number of notches. The turbocharged Ecotec engine in this SEMA-only vehicle delivers an amazing 300 horsepower and 315 lb.-ft. of torque at a low 3250 rpm. Bringing this much power to safe, controllable stops are the upgraded calipers and rotors included in the SSBC Performance Brake Package. The brakes are mounted behind custom 19-inch x 8.5-inch wheels shod with Goodyear Eagle F1 245/40ZR19 tires. To provide enhanced airflow to the engine compartment, Solstice GXP-R features a front fascia with upper inlets and recessed lower grilles. Additional functional vehicle enhancements include modified air extractors, a rear fascia and a rear spoiler. Solstice GXP-R’s exterior is swathed in Hydro Blue paint and modified mesh graphics. The exterior paint theme is accentuated in the vehicle’s interior, which features blue accent stitching throughout and a custom bezel and trim treatment.

Why does everyone make it a R... Other than the rims, I'd rock it. Bet it would be a fun ride.

Yes, it's been out for months. The Saturn Sky is also out.

Here is a dyno with the new 260hp ECOTEC engine:

The car looks great, but the package...400/400 for 47 grand?? You'd think you could get those numbers easy off the ecotec engine and save about 45K. Granted you wouldn't get all the other stuff, but don't they come with 6 speeds and most of that stuff wouldn't be needed?

Putting a V8 in a solstice defeats the purpose of the solstice. I would much prefer the sema concept.

naa.... who needs a Z06 with a warranty when you can have a Solstice that has been modded within an inch of its life and has no warranty?
