GM Performance Parts enhanced Solstice GXP SEMA show carEnlarge Photo
Like the Solstice Roadster, the new GXP Coupe is powered by a 260hp (194kW) 2.0L turbocharged Ecotec engine. The Coupe Concept, however, has been fitted with GM Performance Parts’ Stage 2 upgrade, which comes with a new intake kit that boosts power to around 290hp (216kW).
The concept also features a high-flow cat-back exhaust system and race-tune suspension riding on standard 18in alloy wheels. The exterior of the car has been finished in Olympic White trim with a Hydro Blue racing stripe. Inside, there’s more blue accents used on the leather stitching for the seats, as well as racing-style pedal covers, and an iPod interface for the stereo.
Pontiac will also showcase its Pontiac G8 GXP saloon fitted with a new 7.4L LSX454 V8 crate engine, which you can read about by clicking here.
