20k: Holden On To The Past: 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP

The Pontiac G8 was a rebadged Holden Commodore imported to the US market from Australia for only two years, 2008 and 2009.  There was a base V6, a V8 powered GT model, but the good stuff was saved for the GXP, a MY2009 only LS3 powered brute available with a 6-speed manual or auto gearbox.  Pontiac only imported 1,800 of the GXP sedans, and they have maintained most of their original cost, but today’s is the cheapest we’ve seen.  Find this 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP automatic offered for $23,000 located in SLC, UT via craigslist.

The G8 superseded the Bonneville in Pontiac’s US lineup, but it started life back in 1978 as the Holden Commodore VB, designed and built by Holden, an Australian independent subsidiary of General Motors.  The GXP is powered by GM’s LS3 V8, a 6.2 liter all-alloy pushrod V8 that puts out an impresive 415 horsepower and 415 ft-lbs of torque.

This one is shifted by an automatic transmission and the car has been in an accident (the seller doesn’t mention if the accident appears on the title) but otherwise it looks fine for 40k miles on the odometer.
