2005 Pontiac GTO
2005 Pontiac GTO
In early 1963 a team of engineers and designers got together at Pontiac, and decided to focus more on street racing and power. The Tempest had been in production for a bit, and a more “muscular” powerful car was needed. Hence the acronym GTO or Grand Tempest Option became the code for the secret new development that would take place. John DeLorean actually claims the GTO came from the Italian Gran Turismo Omologato or Grand Touring Homologated (certified) which in reality the car was never meant for grand touring, but to be the fastest straight line Pontiac produced.
Presenting in near showroom condition, this low mileage (61,557)V8 LS2 mill optioned car which pumps out 400hp and a sought after version is ready to humiliate others, and smoke out the masses. Some upgrades to sugarcoat the deal even further, make this consignment a great little piece of automotive candy for someone who has a sweet tooth for this kind of bear exterior and leather interior muscle.
Just a black blur can be seen when this car blows by you. The paint is very nice, with just a few obstacles from normal road usage, some bondo in the driver's rear wrap around rear bumper side wheel well, and drivers side rocker has a slight cracking of the paint. A SLP urethane chin spoiler/splitter adds some looks, and protects the front bumper from parking curb rash. Smooth aero European inspired headlights wrap the front and quarters and from the top center front wheel well there is a snazzy broken up into squares and rectangles, painted white “trim spear” if you will. Below on the beltline, a red and white trimming also runs the length. On the back is a beautifully sculpted spoiler on top of the trunk lid, and just below more euro aero wrap around tail lights. The neoprene body matching rear bumper also sports more of the red and white striping. Nice 17-inch lightweight alloy wheels in shiny covering finish and some edge stripes in red and maroon are 17x8's are wrapped in 245/45ZR17's. Time to go…fast.
Nicely presenting and equally as welcoming sexy red leather buckets are in front, and a 2 plus 2 bench which are essentially 2 more individual attached buckets are in back. GTO embroidery on the backs of these chairs and big bolsters and inserts are all smoothed over red leather. A very clean dash, with red background instrumentation, and very clean controls, as well as a small LED display in the center console are there for your monitoring. Billet aluminum pedals and an original steering wheel are noted. A power driver's seat, black sculpted center console and black and red door panels all make the interior of the “smooth operator” a joy to behold.
An LS2 6.0 Liter V8, original to the car, is under the hood. EFI feeds the mill and a 4L65E 4-speed automatic with a limited slip 3.46 differential in the rear capture the ponies and turn them to forward motion. All looking clean and great for this fairly low mileage goer and show-er. Dual stainless steel mufflers pump out the sound of speed and power.
In a nutshell, very clean, slight surface rust on the usual corrosive steel parts, but totally unremarkable. Beautifully preserved, and obviously never taken out in a snow/salt environment. Independent suspension and power disc braking all around. It is equipped with an all aluminum driveshaft for some weight loss.
Gotta love a low mileage piece of late model muscle, and this car does not disappoint. All good under this hood, and in the seat and surrounding environment. A pleasure to drive, thank you very much!
Taking a close look at this well cared for original. Black paint with a broken up white painted highlighting trimming, and some more belt line trimming, shiny wheels, and smooth slippery red leather, strap on your lead foot, and brush your sweet tooth, you are going fill that cavity of a hankering for some euro area design and speed.. let's for a ride!
