Up for sale in our Tampa Showroom is this stunning, 2004 Pontiac GTO. Not only is this particular car extremely rare (1 of just 241 in Barbados Blue with a manual transmission), but it is barely broken in with slightly more than 12,000 miles showing on the odometer! The GTO nameplate was revived from 2004 to 2006 as a captive import for Pontiac as the American, left-hand drive version of the Holden Monaro. The revival was prompted by former GM North America Chairman Bob Lutz, who had the idea of importing a Holden Commodore-based vehicle after reading a Car and Driver review of the Holden Commodore SS. The GTO was assembled by GM's Holden subsidiary at Elizabeth Australia. It was equipped with the 5.7 liter LS1 V8 engine for the 2004 model year, the same engine found in the concurrent model year Chevrolet Corvette, with a choice of a 6-speed manual transmission or a 4-speed automatic. This particular one is the 6 speed manual. General Motors claimed performance of 5.3 seconds to 60 and a 13.8 second quarter mile time, which was closely verified by several magazine tests. The hood scoops that originally were slated for production in 2005 were pushed into production as part of an over-the-counter Sport Appearance Package. The 2004 Sport Appearance Package also included a taller and more angular rear spoiler, as well as deeper inset grilles. The interior is amazing in leather with gorgeous stitching signifying its lineage of the almighty GTO. Options include on this 2004 Pontiac GTO include air conditioning, AM/FM radio, CD player, cruise control, anti lock brakes, anti theft system, driver airbag, passenger airbag, leather seats, lumbar support, power seats, power locks, power mirrors, power windows, remote keyless entry, rear defogger, traction control, tilt wheel, numbers matching and aluminum alloy wheels wrapped in performance radial tires.
