Just built a G8 and . . . . .

53 posts in this topic

I priced up a fully loaded GT with Premium Package, Sport Package, and Sunroof for $32,745. I then priced up a loaded V-6 model with Comfort & Sound Package, Premium Package, and Sunroof, and the price was $33,735. Wha? :o A loaded V-6 model is $990 more? Come on people! :angry:

Well... Those who want better MPG are willing to pay more than those who want HP. :o:P

I'm joking... but honestly, it's really down to a choice between the two powertrains. The V8 is not necessarily higher end than the V6. It's just preference to some. Power isn't a premium, just an option? Sound possible?

Well, it is a different way of thinking. Just caught me off guard.

Math. The difference is probably the 'Comfort & Sound Package' vs. the 'Sport Package' + v8..

Let's just say that my "to do" list is a bit onerous these days.

I'd only take the 6...with current hp/torque levels from modern 6s, I cannot for the life of me think of one situation where I'd say, "damn, I wish I had the 8." The weight savings alone (and better weight balance front/rear) likely make the 6 the better handler anyway.

This car is in a much better position than the GTO was, with a real trunk, four doors and the 3.6L option. I hope it does well.

unrelated, but that remind me of a quote to knock off the fast and the furious.....

Thinkin about this post last night, I realize that at first, the G8 GT will come with a stupid tax that will make it far more expensive than a loaded V-6 model.

I see the V6 has 256 hp. This is the regular 3.6 and not the DI, I assume?

Its the same engine that the base CTS has. The DI would be a good inclusion to the G8 imo.

This car will sell very well IMO. The G8 is an amazing product.

I'm assuming no DI because of where the car is assembled. GM must not be giving Holden DI engines for thier cars yet. 256 hp is definitely enough. the hp wars are crazy in my book. 300 hp with equal or better gas mileage is without a doubt fantastic. BUT, if you're just looking at hp, 256 is more than enough. this is a whole pissing war/grass is greaner on the other side issue. 300 hp without a hot wife still only nets 300 hp, net gain not much additional happiness.

Weird... I thought the original number was 261. Oh well, it's 5hp.
