Also on hand to give this Pontiac a lower appearance is a set of lowering springs. Thanks to these springs, the G6 GXP is 25mm closer to the ground than its stock counterpart is. The struts haven't been revised, but wheel size is now a massive 19 inches, and the stock brake discs have been replaced with vented and cross-drilled pieces.
Engine power is up, too. A 3.9-liter V6 rests under the hood of this coupe, and thanks to a K&N intake and a cat-back free-flowing exhaust, it pushes out 270 horses and 259 lb.-ft. of torque out to the flywheel. With the GXP being a proper sporty coupe, a six-speed manual transmission is used to help drivers row through the gears.
That concept used an upgraded version of the standard 3.5L OHV V6. The new concept uses the new 3.9L VVT OHV V6 found in the GTP. I'd rather have 5 HP less and gain a more efficient VVT V6 engine.soldierdude262 said:yeah I just found that, if you do a google search they made 275hp with 3.6 liters for the '04 gxp concept, so now they're using a bigger engine that makes less power?
