@ Fangio Man: The GTO was first offered as a package on the Pontiac Tempest before it was its own stand alone model. The Pontiac GTO is popularly believed to be the first muscle car.

Amazing for the year it was made the 0-100kph and that was 2 years after I was born, but I guess 56bhp/liter is poor in todays terms and I bet it sounded great being a V8 and all 6.4 ltr

I don't know the history about the records of the GTO but in the article they say that the car that made them was a ringer.

With Pontiac now as good as dead, I decided to upload their most famous car- the original GTO. This car started the muscle car wars of the 1960s and early 70s. Specs are for the 1965 389 3x2 model. The car became its own model in 1966, and was redesigned for 1968.
