No one knew it at the time, but when this first-year 2006 Pontiac
Solstice roadster came on the scene, it would be the beginning of
the last great Pontiac. So when you can find such a low mileage one
that has an awesome color combo and a five-speed, you know this is
the most affordable and desirable future classic around.
Pontiac has always been about striving for thoughtful sports cars
in the GM lineup, and that reached its pinnacle with the Solstice.
Aiming to be a lighter and nimbler companion to the Corvette, the
Solstice has all the great performance design cues we all love.
This includes the long hood, scalloped fenders, sleek profile, and
short rear deck. Plus, Pontiac was really doing a great job with
their styling of the twin grille that was dangerously BMW-like, and
everyone loves the dual buttresses that meet the headrests. All of
this is straight from Pontiac, just like glossy Victory Red paint
and the dealer option 18-inch polished alloys. And the reason why
this looks so great is this car has less than 8k miles on the
odometer in total!
Low mileage also means the black interior continues to look dark,
clean, and quite attractive. The supportive bucket seats highlight
a cockpit that's built around the driver. The three-spoke sports
steering wheel has all the modern controls you could want. Beyond
that is a handsome set of analog gauges that light up red when you
turn the key. This is loaded with all the right features, including
power windows, power locks, keyless entry, dual air bags, cruise
control, a powerful AM/FM/CD stereo with auxiliary input, and
cold-blowing air conditioning.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 2.4-liter fuel-injected
motor. Ultra-low mileage and proper maintenance means this looks
like new. This peppy and powerful DOHC motor was GMs version of a
sports car for the modern era. In this lightweight setup, the
Solstice delivers the kind of performance you'd expect in a
Japanese or European import but wrapped in American styling. This
sporty spirit is felt every time you hit the open the road. The
five-speed manual provides complete control, and the fully
independent suspension loves every corner. Add in great anytime
features such as power steering and four-wheel power disc brakes,
and this is an unbeatable driving package.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual packet and
reproduction window sticker. This low-mileage Solstice is a blast
to drive today and a great classic to have for tomorrow. Offering
all of this at such an affordable price means it will be leaving us
soon. Call today!!!
