Alas, as much as we may lament this fact, it still remains – Pontiac is gone forever. Before the brand that gave us such amazing cars as the GTO and Trans Am breathed it’s dying breath, it gave us one last testament to it’s eternal awesomeness that will live on – the G8 GT. Luckily for enthusiasts everywhere, there are still numerous examples of the L76/auto Pontiac out there to be had for reasonable prices. However, there are just a scant few of the G8 that bring some genuine “driving excitement” – the 6.2L LS powered, T56 Magnum equipped G8 GXP.
It’s pretty rare to even find a GXP for sale, and when they do pop up on the market they tend to sell very quickly. In fact, there were just 1,829 GXPs that were produced. That’s why we were stoked when we found this 2009 Panther Black Metallic GXP for sale on eBay listed by Livernois Motorsports. The car was used as their shop car, and comes equipped with plenty of Livernois go-fast goodies. in fact, Livernois says the car makes over 500 horsepower at the rear wheels thanks to the following:
- Livernois Motorsports LS3 Mini-Stroker Shortblock
- Livernois Motorsports CNC Ported LS3 Cylinder Heads
- Livernois Motorsports Custom Ground Camshaft
- Livernois Motorsports LS-Series Dual Valve Spring Kit
- Rotofab Cold Air Intake System
- Kooks 1 7/8″ Shorty/Mid-Length Headers
