The Pontiac G8 GXP is powered by a Corvette engine. The 6.0 L V8 can generate up to 402 hp. It will go from 0-60 mph in only 4.7 seconds, which is not bad for a car with 19 inch rims as standard, which not a common accessory.
It seems the Pontiac G8 GXP will be a reasonable priced car; at least, that’s what the general manager from Buick-Pontiac-GMC says. In the matter of shifting gear, the Pontiac G8 GXP will be available in two versions: automatic shift and manual. The six-gear manual shift will probably offer you a shorter throw.
