Freedom Isn’t Free: 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP

The Pontiac G8 GXP isn’t the fastest car you can buy for the same amount of money, or even the fastest sedan you can buy with 400+ horsepower that’ll hit 60 mph in 4.5 seconds (like a similar vintage BMW M5 for reference). There are all kinds of European super sedans that are just as fast, if not faster…but they’ll all drain your bank account faster than a 22 year old trophy wife with a Louis Vuitton habit. The G8 GXP however, is powered by an American 6.0 liter LS3 V8 that’ll make donuts till the cows come home AND it doesn’t have a fancy self leveling air bag suspension (cough cough AMG E63) or turbos that are harder to replace than Batman’s parents (ahem, RS6). What it does have is some ridiculous Pontiac styling and an interior sourced from the leftover plastic at the McDonalds beverage lid factory and power..sweet..raw…American…power, assembled by Aussies. Find this 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP offered for $19,500 in Hattiesburg, MS via craigslist. Tip from Ramjet.

Yes, it’s a G8-GXP. (not the G8-GT) If you do not know one G8 from another, or if you are not a GXP enthusuast, then you may not appreciate the value of this offering. This is the most powerful Pontiac ever made. Very rare, only about a dozen advertised for sale in the U.S. This is the model with the 6.2 Corvette LS3 engine, 415 horsepower, special brakes and suspension.Only 1829 made, with just 96 in this color combo with SUN ROOF and automatic transmission. Very clean inside and out, excellent condition, no dents or scratches. The price is the lowest i see on the internet. These usually bring more than any book values. It’s not all about the price, it’s more about finding a nice one that has not been molested or abused. This is not an auction. The price is what i want, and NO i will not take $15K cash. Just compare with other listings on the internet. No MS. sales tax and no dealer doc fees.
