2005 Pontiac GTO

With the 400-horsepower LS2 high performance small-block V-8 at the ready, the Pontiac GTO show vehicle comes with decidedly more power. Many individual components come together to form a unique package that sets this GTO apart. From nose to tail, specific components give this GTO a lower, more aggressive look. Custom-designed performance equipment from airbox to exhaust adds power to back the GTOs visual punch.

Auction Sales History

2005 Pontiac GTO

2005 Pontiac GTO – sold for $22,000. 6.0 Liter 400hp with 6-speed manual transmission. One of 160 Impulse Blue with black leather 6-speed cars ever built. This is the last of the big dogs from Pontiac Motor Division. This car is like brand new with 1,500 original miles and still in factory plastic.

Car is like the day it rolled into the dealership, serviced each year by a GM dealer. Every piece of paperwork from day one included, Window Sticker, books, Bill of Sale, invoice, shipping paperwork, Pontiac dealer prep paperwork and export paperwork from new. The original documentation is amazing. Everything has been saved, all labels, stickers and papers from the way it rolled into the dealer’s showroom. The other thing about this car is it came with items for a European delivery to the Middle East. In the dealer packet included with the car was a fire extinguisher, only included with cars destined for that part of the world. The writing on it is in English an Arabic. Auction Source: 2012 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction
