SUNFIRE GXP SHOW CAR PACKS POWER IN A SMALL PACKAGE

Younger drivers looking for punch, power and performance in a small package will be drawn to Pontiac's Sunfire GXP show car.

The Sunfire GXP, displayed for the first time at the 2002 Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) show, features streamlined styling with the GXP-specific Shadow Black tri-coat color scheme, front and rear fascia, fog lamps, rocker panel extensions, and rear deck spoiler.

The big news is the Sunfire GXP's supercharged Ecotec 2.0-liter inline four-cylinder engine. At 180 hp, it represents a significant boost in power over the entry level Sunfire's 140 hp engine, making Sunfire GXP a strong vehicle to attract young performance enthusiasts.

Designed with a lowered ride height to create a tight wheel-to-body relationship, the Sunfire GXP is equipped with performance-tuned suspension components, GXP specific 17-inch forged aluminum wheels and Bridgestone Potenza RE730 tires.

Larger diameter, high-performance front and rear disc brakes with red heat-resistant ceramic coated calipers, and a production based performance exhaust system are also included in the Sunfire GXP performance package.

Additional features on the Pontiac Sunfire GXP show car include a GXP specific instrument panel treatment with argent IP gauge cluster faceplate, metal-look interior trim bezels, GXP-specific aluminum design foot pedal covers and unique GXP performance series exterior badging.
