It appears that the Americans are going to get an Aussie performance car bargain with the Pontiac G8 GT (our Commodore SS-V) expected to sell well under US$35k.
Originally reported by TheGMSource.com it has been verified by Autoblog who asked Pontiac direct. Pontiac confirmed and emphasised the â€˜well underâ€™. Considering that a 6-speed VE SS-V is listed at $52,490 (Aussie dollars) the Americans are getting the bargain of the century.
In rough figures if the Pontiac G8 GT retails at US$32,000 thatâ€™s the equivalent of AUD$37,000 or a price discount of $15,490â€¦ If you are in the market for a VE SS-V it might be time to put the crunch on your local Holden dealer and get some discount lovin!
As speculated by Autoblog this will leave room for a possible range topping Pontiac GXP version to retail in the US$40,000+ range and who better to supply that than HSVâ€¦
