Default Pontiac SLP Firehawk G8 GT details, pricing released

Quote:


It seems that no amount of controversy will prevent SLP (Street Legal Performance) from launching its latest Firehawk, this time based on the Pontiac G8 GT. Prior to this model, all previous Firehawk packages were fitted to the Firebird, a fact that has a number of SLP purists rather upset. Before we get to the specifications, perhaps we should remind Firebird fans that it could be worse: At least they didn't choose to revive the Firehawk name on a version of the new Camaro, right?

As for the car, it sounds like a pretty nice package. To the stock V8 engine, SLP adds a supercharger that's similar to the one featured on the jaw-dropping Corvette ZR1, a stainless exhaust system and a cold air induction system. All that's good for an impressive 500 horsepower. Other mods include new 19-inch alloys painted up in gun metal gray and a sport suspension package. The car's most striking design element will surely be the flat black-painted hood, grille surrounds and rear spoiler – an obvious nod to the factory gaudiness of muscle cars from the late '60s and early '70s.

Aside from the Firehawk name, the biggest issue that's likely to inhibit future SLP G8 ownership is surely the price. To the stocker's $32,440 base price, the SLP package adds a substantial $18,995, plus an extra $4,995 for an upgraded brake kit. For that kind of money, buyers could very nearly opt for a Cadillac CTS-V and be rewarded with its amazing supercharged 6.2L V8 engine and 556 horsepower. Still want one? Check back with your favorite local Pontiac dealer on April 1st. No foolin'.

that will still undercut a CTS-V by 10k+ in the real world for pricing... now do you keep the factory warranty?? i'd assume so

they should really offer the kit on the GXP and upgrade the brakes/suspension w/warranty all for mid 50k and have 600+ hp

This is a car you buy and dont modify though. Straight from the factory just the way you want it. Beat on it all day, still passes emissions legitimately, and it has a warranty. Its a mid life crisis type of vehicle.

It usually always comes back to dollars and cents. The cost of manufacturing 1 design over 2.

And that car is nice.
