G8 owners will be able to switch to a Holden Commodore look or a more sporty HSV faceEnlarge Photo
The kit is the development of JHP Vehicle Enhancements, and it will transform the Americanized G8 into a dead ringer for its Australian ancestor. It includes a new hood, hood latch, hood insulator, and a front bumper fascia extension. You also get an upper grille radiator, a front bar fascia, a front bar absorber and front fog lamps. The entire package will cost $1,990, but to truly complete the look you'll want to get the Holden badges and center caps for the wheels, which will run you $150 each for a set of four.
For those with the more potent Pontiac G8 GT model, which is more closely aligned with the performance models from Holden Special Vehicles (HSV), there is also a conversion kit available with the same upgrades as the above package, but with a design that matches cars like the HSV R8 and GTS. The GT kit will run you back $3,880.
JHP will also color match the pieces or they can be ordered unpainted.
