Dollar for dollar this is one of the fastest cars produced in the last 15 years. Lots of ignorant comments here from people who clearly do not build. This car will eat most $80,000 cars for around $12,000 todays cost. Intelligently put $10,000 into it and nearly nothing on the street can beat it. Just lots of ignorance in this thread.

Where are you getting your hp and torque rating? I thought the gto put out 400 hp.

It does a 200 MPH it can do, there is a picture and a video also to prove it.

Underated or not, its still not doing 189Mph. Even if it had 430Bhp real power, It wouldnt do it. A 5.7 03-04 model with 350Bhp had a max of 167Mph(Limiter cutoff 158Mph)(I know stupid)

A Hsv Vz GTO Coupe is said by Hsv to hit 180Mph even, Most have reported 176Mph, ANd that has the same engine, and gearing(With exception of 5th and 6th) and "Slightly" better Aero, And that doesnt do 189Mph.

2005 C6 400Bhp 187Mph, 2004 911 Turbo 415Bhp 188Mph, 360 CS 425Bhp 186Mph, 2004 493Bhp CL55 AMG Unlimited 189Mph.

Fastest stock 2006 400Bhp GTO i believe has been 172Mph, SOme "Speedos" showing higher. This does not do 189Mph plain and simple, Not with what it has.

That car's 400 horsepower is underrated though.


User avatar

Shaggy  6y ago

It could do 189 mph with an extra 120 horsepower by my calculations.


User avatar

bluefingers  6y ago

It CAN reach 189 but ONLY with a few thousand miles. https://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20140716233231AAjx3mr

This car couldn't do 189 mph falling from a plane.


User avatar

BR2+  6y ago

...This aint doing 189.


User avatar

bluefingers  6y ago

Restricted top speed is 158 mph. 189 de-restricted.

Hey guys, i agree it is sad there are no track times :( once i have more time and money ill get working on the tracks in CA though, although mine will be with full exhaust and track suspension. If you want performance out of a GTO that's really all you have to do... really transformed the handling ability of the car.

@Nickerson

So a car with a top speed of 170mph and 0-60 in less than 5 seconds for $30k is crap performance? Seems like a damn good bargain to me.


User avatar

Nickerson  8y ago

Crap engine output with 6 liters & performance wise -> just delete it...

The vauxhall monaro (basically the same car) went around top gears track in 1:30.1

That is the same time as the 05 sti that they tested.

Most manufacturers could increase the power of their engines quite a bit, but they usually have a lot of other considerations. As for this Pontiac, I am surprised that there are no lap times. Didn't it get into any race track comparison tests?


User avatar

BR2  8y ago

@Anon, Its not about wether they can or cant, its what they CHOSE! These manufakturs who are giving 6.0L or 7.0L Engines choes to make it have that much power, its not because they cant, if they wanted to they could give this car a hell of a lot more, but they didnt, im quite tired of hearing people say "a 6.0L V8 and "ONLY" putting out x amount?"


User avatar

Not like the displacement matters. The car has 400 hp. Making that 400 hp from a .03 L engine wouldn't mean anything because it would still be exactly as fast.


User avatar

Anon  8y ago

Couldn't they get AT LEAST 500Bhp from a SIX LITER V8 ENGINE ? NO Offence to the workers at Pontiac which is now extinct , but are they dumb or what?

Mercedes was making a 5.5L that made 355 at the time. 500 hp? The car costed $30k. They weren't trying to make a super car they were trying to make an affordable car that is faster than anything else for the same amount of money. Are you dumb or what?[img][/img]

Well said NIN. Automakers definitely de-tune their engines. If Porsche didn't for instance they wouldnt be able to sell the new 911 thats coming out. Aston Martin is the king of this though, as they use the same V12 but give it different power levels. They charge you more so you can get what power the engine should have produced in the first place.

Its sad GM had to dump pontiac but I can certainly understand why. I was super pumped up about the new Trans Am because I had a wicked WS6 when I was in my early 20's.

There is a company thats turning the new cameros into trans ams that look like the original concept cars but the cost is way too far above what a dealer would have charged. Still very cool to see someone keeping the brand alive and modern.

GM needed to rework its business plan and cut costs where possible after the bubble burst in 2007. They found they could maintain synergy between their subsidiaries and decrease cost by cutting Pontiac loose (they dropped hummer the same year and had already dropped Oldsmobile in 2004). BTW, the G8 lives on in Australia, the Middle East, and in America (as the new police caprice).

Why did Pontiac get Extinct? Does anyone know? They made basically good cars like this GTO , the G8 and the little Solstice
