ADDITIONAL MODEL INFORMATION

The Pontiac G8 has always been well-loved by enthusiasts, who enjoy the car's rear-wheel drive platform, its relatively subtle styling and its rarity, as the G8 lasted only two model years -- 2008 and 2009 -- before the Pontiac brand was phased out during GM's bankruptcy and restructuring.

Although three engines were offered for the G8, the most desirable was always the "GXP," which was available only for the 2009 model year. While the regular G8 used a 256-horsepower V6 and the sporty GT used a 361-hp V8, the GXP offered a highly impressive 402-hp 6.2-liter V8, which was offered with a 6-speed manual. Obviously, these cars are tremendously rare, but this G8 is precisely that: a GXP with a 6-speed manual transmission and just under 29,000 miles.

This G8 is offered by Tampa Bay AutoNetwork in Tampa, Florida, and it's finished in white with a black leather interior. It's also a one-owner car, which only increases the desirability. The Carfax report notes that it was sold new in Tampa in February 2009 and remained there its whole life, with an owner who only drove it sparingly.

Due to the low production volume of the G8 -- and the especially low volume of the GXP -- these models are highly sought-after on the used market today, and surprisingly pricey. This G8 GXP is offered for $33,500, which isn't too far below what it originally sold for nearly 10 years ago -- and its asking price is in line with the market value of other manual G8 GXP models. Such is the price you pay for owning a desirable, rare car.
