From the Pontiac web site: "With all 303 horses summoned, the GXP can stampede from 0-60 mph on the GM test track in 5.7 seconds, performance that may be as eye-opening to you as it is to GXP's competition." <p>Oh really?<p>In a hypothetical situation on any given hot day, such as today's 85F, a Pontiac GXP V8 LS4's might have a good chance at toasting a nearly stock heat soaked R. Especially if the hypothetically sneaky Pontiac driver jumped ahead off the line a good car-length of the otherwise non-interested and unsuspecting R. However, in just such a hypothetical situation, and on a closed road of course, a <I>nearly stock</I> 6MT R with <B>in-cylinder cooling</B> by <B>AQUAMIST</B> would easily spank such a silly looking car. The driver of such an R would feel very pleased, hypothetically, once he caught and passed that wanna-be and self-proclaimed class leader <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/zeroforum_graphics/screwy.gif" BORDER="0"> <p>With his tail between his legs and the R's rear badge now at 12-o'clock, said the Pontiac driver to himself "For shame, for shame, my big bad V8 fell to what? A Volvo <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0"> " <p>All of this, hypothetically, of course.<p>LTA<p><br><BR><BR>

The Grand Prix GXP would have front wheel hop off the line, that is why I love AWD! My bet would be on a R with a 6 speed manual transmission.
