50 Cent Unveils Pontiac G8 GXP in New York


FOLLOW Instagram + Facebook + Twitter



50 Cent along with Maximum Bob Lutz unveiled the Pontiac G8 GXP, and specifically its optional six-speed manual transmission. The G8 comes with a 6.2-liter LS3 V8 pulled from the Corvette, making 402 hp and 400 lb.-ft. of torque.


If you opt for the 6L80 auto `box, you can check your manhood and an extra two lb.-ft. of torque at the door. In addition to the upgraded engine and manual tranny, the GXP benefits from the 19-inchers originally shown on the G8 concept, Brembo brakes (sized 14-inches up front and 12.76 inches out back) and some revised suspension bits. Zero-to-60 times are down to 4.7 seconds and the G8 GXP (along with the Solstice coupe and `ute) are all due to hit dealers later this year.
