Pontiac brought back the GTO in the 2000s to create an instant
classic. That's especially true with this 2006 example. After all,
it's the final year, and it has been meticulously kept with nearly
impossible low miles to make sure it fully represents the last-ever
GTO. So with the vivid paint, loaded interior, powerful LS2 V8, and
ultra-desirable six-speed, you know this one might not even stay
around long enough to read the full description.
Sleekly rounded styling, dual hood scoops, factory ground effects
body kit, full-width rear spoiler, and the dark factory 17-inch
alloys - the last GTO was quite a sporty machine. But more than
just living up to its legendary name, this is a very special
Pontiac. The company made an unprecedented move to reach over to
Australia to bring back the best four-person sports car in the GM
family. It was such a good idea, that this would be the base for
the Camaro a few years later. But in 2006 the GTO's revival was a
quiet one, with less than 14k cars brought over for the year. And
you can really tell that this is one that was treated with respect.
The low mileage means the factory body panels retain their
distinctive good looks, and everything is clean and clear, right
down to the euro-style tail lights that came direct from the
factory. Plus, the Brazen Orange Metallic paint lives up to its
name with its extra smooth and extra bold shine. It makes a coupe
like this quite a find. After all, with Pontiac gone from our
landscape, it takes a special car to represent what GM's
performance division really meant to us.
The interior is one of the best arguments ever for reaching across
the world for a new GM product. Holden had superior materials than
much of the rest of the contemporary Pontiac lineup, and in fact,
this GTO helped show the way to provide a true mix of luxury and
performance. That means front seats that power adjust and have the
bolstering to be all-day comfortable. You'll love the detail work,
like how the orange dials coordinate with the exterior and glow so
nicely within the aggressively dark interior. This loaded Pontiac
has plenty of great features, such as power windows, power locks,
an alarm, dual front airbags, tilt/telescopic steering wheel,
cruise control, power steering, and ice-cold air conditioning.
Plus, the AM/FM/CD stereo is by Blaupunkt, so you get premium
European sound in this American muscle package.
The final year GTO was also desirable because they have the LS2
motor. The 6.0-liter fuel-injected V8 was rated at 400 horsepower -
so it's worthy of the muscle from the best muscle car days. It all
looks exceptionally stock on this ultra-low mileage example, and
nothing looks out of place. But we bet you'll find it easy to add
to the odometer. This is a versatile V8 that makes for easy driving
in everyday situations. And the desirable six-speed manual
transmission means you have the control to make it instantly growl
to life the moment you want a dominant sports car on the streets.
Plus, it has all the best modern driving features, including a
fully independent suspension, four-wheel disc brakes with ABS, and
a newer set of Goodyear Eagle Sport tires.
Complete with maintenance records, this is the final GTO that has
been preserved with the kind of impressive respect that the GTO
name deserves. So don't miss your chance at an exceptional modern
classic. Call today!!!
