2006 Pontiac GTO
In early 1963 a team of engineers and designers got together at
Pontiac and decided to focus more on street racing and power. The
Tempest had been in production for a bit, and a more "muscular"
powerful car was needed. Hence the acronym GTO or Grand Tempest
Option became the code for the secret new development that would
take place. John DeLorean actually claims the GTO came from the
Italian Gran Turismo Omologato or Grand Touring Homologated,
(certified), which in reality the car was never meant for grand
touring, but to be the fastest straight-line Pontiac produced.
Presenting in very nice and racy condition, this V8 LS2 mill
optioned car which pumps out 400hp and a sought after version is
ready to rock and roll and smoke out the masses. Some upgrades to
sugarcoat the deal even further, make this consignment a great
little piece of automotive mercury for someone who wants to slip by
Quicksilver can be seen when this car blows by you. The paint is
ok, with chips, dings, dents and scrapes on the side panels and
bumpers of this consignor stated 47,724 clocked original mile car.
A body matching neoprene bumper has the BMW-esque grille inserted
and an air-dam below with running lights on either side. On the
back a rounded spoiler emulates the trunk shape and aero inset tail
and backup lights curve with the lines of this rear, we do note
that the passenger side taillight is cracked and will need to be
replaced. Dual exhaust peek out from underneath the GTO badge black
rear roll pan. Nice, 18-inch lightweight KYOWA racing wheels
painted black and in snowflake pattern, are wrapped in Delinte size
245/40Z-R18's all around.
Nicely presenting and equally as welcoming oxblood leather buckets
are in front, and a 2 plus 2 bench which are essentially 2 more
individual attached buckets are in back. Black accenting is
embroidered on the backs, (GTO... imagine that!), and the plastic
tubs they reside in. These buckets have some power adjustments as
well as a manual recline knob on the sides. A very clean dash, with
red background instrumentation and some smaller LED readouts, and
very clean controls are in the dash front. Seen in the center, a
small LED display within an AM/FM/CD Bluetooth head unit. Temp
knobs are just above and this dash center melts into a center
console which features a short throw shifter with a red stitched
leather boot, and handbrake with similar stitching in black
leather. Billet aluminum pedals and an original steering wheel are
noted. A bit of red accenting can be seen on the sides of the
console and the toe kicks just above and beside the black carpeting
flooding the floors. A tight black fuzzy headliner sports some LED
lighting anodes looking nice and clean with no errors.
An LS2 6.0Liter V8 original to the car is under the hood. EFI feeds
the mill and a T56 6-speed manual transmission is bolted on the
back. A 3.64 limited slip differential is way in the back. All
looking clean and great even down to the AEM Brute Force air intake
In a nutshell, very clean, slight surface rust on the usual
corrosive steel parts, but totally unremarkable. Beautifully
preserved, and obviously never taken out in a snow/salt
environment. Independent suspension and power disc braking all
around. Solid as a rock.
Gotta love a low mileage piece of late model muscle, and this car
does not disappoint. all good under this hood, and in the seat.
Excellent acceleration, solid bias free braking and rail like
handling. And I love the oxblood leather which I admit I'm a sucker
Taking a close look at the items included, this car needs some
cosmetic TLC but still smokes em with ease. Wonderful interior,
sporty exterior, racy wheels and 400 horses for this goat. Grab
this baby by the horns and prepare to go for an E ticket ride.
