Welcome to the Hooniverse Obscure Muscle Car Garage, a regular feature which aims to expand the notion of what a muscle car is, and have some fun in the process. This has been an interesting series so far, with vehicles covered dating from the 50s through the 70s. What about something more recent, like a car that only went out of production a few years ago, and is still available on used car lots today? Yes, there are newer cars available for sale that fit into the muscle car category, like the Dodge Charger R/T, or the Chrysler 300 SRT-8. There is the Mustang GT and the Shelby, as well as the Pontiac G8 GT. But, did you know there was a powerful V8 Sedan, that wore the Pontiac arrowhead symbol, and was produced just before the awesome G8? Introducing the Pontiac Grand Prix GXP.

Stuffing a V8 into a front-wheel-drive platform results in a lot of torque steer. Mashing on the accelerator pedal at any speed causes the car to dart around. However, even with the gobs of torque steer, the Grand Prix GXP ran a tire-smoking 0 – 60 mph in 6.7 seconds, according to a report published on Edmunds. They ran a 5.7L Dodge Magnum R/T at the same time, and the 0-60 mph run was done in 6.8 seconds, so kudos to Pontiac for having a Front Driver run with a super performing Rear Driver. The GXP leaves the larger Magnum in the dust on the drag strip, running the quarter-mile in 14.6 seconds at 95.4 mph. Its braking performance has been reported as good with cross-drilled rotors (12.7 inches front, 12 inches rear), but the calipers are only two-piston in front and single-piston out back.
The 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP power plant is the LS4 V8, a 5.3L displacement on demand (active fuel management), engine based on the LS1 block. The output of this version is 303hp (226 kW/323 lb·ft, 438 N·m). It has a shortened crankshaft and a host of other modifications to make it fit into a front-wheel drive vehicle. The GXP also has a 4-speed automatic transmission with paddle style tap shift, heads up display, vented cross drilled brakes with PBR calipers. Performance tuned suspension with Bilstein gas-charged struts (sits about 9 mm, 0.4 in) lower than GT and GTP models.
Air conditioning, alloy wheels, anti-lock brakes (ABS), CD player, keyless entry, power seat, power steering, power windows, tilt steering, cruise control, owners manual and much More. Warranty available.
