Autotrader Find: 2009 Pontiac G8 GXP Manual With 16,500 Miles


In car enthusiast circles, the Pontiac G8 is well known as a special, desirable, rare car — as it should be. It was only offered for the 2008 and 2009 model years, right before Pontiac was canceled as a brand, and it was a special car: a rear-wheel-drive midsize sedan that you could get with some serious power.

Unfortunately, most people who got the G8 bought the “regular” versions — the base model, which used a 256-horsepower 3.6-liter V6, or the GT version, which used a 360-hp 6.0-liter V8. Both were great in their own right, but the cream of the crop was undoubtedly the G8 GXP, which used a 6.2-liter V8 with 415 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque. And this is that.

Better yet, this is a G8 GXP with a manual transmission, of which there are only a handful on Autotrader — and, more importantly, it’s traveled just 16,500 miles since it was sold new a decade ago, surely making it one of the best-preserved G8 GXP models in existence. If you’re disappointed you didn’t buy one back when they were new, now’s your chance to catch up.

Unfortunately, it’s priced high: this G8 GXP is listed by Selden Motors in the Philadelphia area with an asking price of $39,500, which isn’t too far off what the car cost new a decade ago. But really nice G8 GXP models seem to command a premium, and this is precisely that, an example that it’s in pristine shape with that desirable manual transmission. It’ll surely find its way to a connoisseur of the unusual, short-lived high-performance Pontiac sedan. Find a Pontiac G8 for sale
