Pontiac at the New York Auto Show

March 2008 New York, NY: Superstar Hip-Hop Artist 50 Cent joined Pontiac to introduce new vehicles at the NY International Auto Show. 50-Cent is a passionate car enthusiast. He has previously worked with Pontiac to customize a G8 to his specifications.
Pontiac revealed its High-Performance Flagship - the superstar of the GXP performance series - the 2009 G8 GXP. The G8 GXP takes the G8's good looks to a new level. It also delivers an enjoyable driving experience, thanks to a 6.2L V-8 that produces in excess of 400 horsepower. A new 6-speed Tremec TR6060 manual transmission is optional. Pending final testing, the G8 GXP is expected to deliver 0-to-60 mph performance of about 4.7 seconds, and a quarter-mile time of 13.0 seconds at 108 mph. More than just raw power, the GXP delivers the sophisticated yet exciting driving experience that enthusiasts expect in a car costing far more than the GXP. It will join the Solstice, G6 and Torrent GXP models in Pontiac dealerships in late 2008. The top selling roadster in the U.S., the Pontiac Solstice - is being joined by a coupe model. Revealed at the NY Auto Show is the 2009 Pontiac Solstice coupe. Unveiled as a GXP model, the Solstice coupe builds on the success of the convertible model while offering a greater range of all-season driving opportunities. For drivers still wanting an open-air experience, the coupe also features a removable roof panel, fully opening the cockpit to all of the sensations of the road. Despite its dramatic new look, engineers made only minor structural changes to create the Solstice Coupe. And while the coupe is powered by a standard 2.4L Ecotec four-cylinder engine that generates 173 horsepower, the GXP version is equipped with a 2.0 L turbocharged Ecotec engine with 260 horsepower. It is expected to arrive in Pontiac dealerships in early 2009.
