G6 GXP at SEMA show

http://www.autoweek.com/article.cms?articleId=101121

3.6L V6, six-speed stick, 18" wheels, and 275HP? Sounds yummy. I gotta get me one *if* it gets approved...

It looks nice! I still don't like it when they add ribbing down the side!

Just goes to show how similar the two cars look. Brand Identity at its finest.

That's VERY VERY close

Interior is going to be a bit different. But all the "rumors" that are floating are mostly true. GM hasn't hid this one as they're looking really to impress those that have been dogging the G6.

... there will have to be something to bet me TOTALLY interested as I am still "on the fence" about the styling but I would certainly like more power

^I'm with you on this one the styling is OK but it would really perk my intrest if the production vehicle actually had 275 ponies(the more the better) and 6 speed manual....BTW Adam do you know is that GXP a NA engine or not? And what is the starting price going to be?

I'd expect starting prices to be much around current GTP Grand Prix Pricing. It's supercharged engine as of right now.

I would enjoy the 275hp..however not in a FWD package...even the GTP with "magnasteering" (I believer thats the name) had too much trq steer for my taste. Should be an interesting car though.

The engine in this vehicle is similar to 3.6 DOHC used in current Cadillac CTS (and other vehicles). That one is rated at 255 HP so this one must be tweaked a bit.

Usually HO models just have 'revised heads' (probably just ported bowls) and a slightly better cam. They could easily meet the power levels they want.

I am pushing 260hp and I have virtually no torque steer.
