Motor Trend's First Look and Test

Score another victory for GM

Judging by the wild reception it received while prowling the streets of L.A., Pontiac's new G8 GT is the hottest import from Down Under since Elle MacPherson.


Looks like another victory for GM. Meantime, stay tuned to this channel. Coming soon is an instrumented road test you won't want to miss.

Numbers coming in are pretty repetitive among the mags. Pontiac's claimed numbers are 5.3; and 13.8 @ 101. Nobody has broken 5.3 yet, but posting a 5.4 (obvious extra tire smoke) Edmunds Inside Line managed a 13.7 1/4 mile at 104 mph. Chargers look out!
