GTO - three legendary letters that started and defined a muscle car phenomenon in 1964. More than four decades later, the 2006 Pontiac GTO is the spiritual leader of modern muscle.
For the ’06 model year, the GTO is distinguished by revised taillamp styling. The taillamp background is now gloss black instead of red. Two new colors - Fusion Orange and Spice Red - offer none-too-subtle choices for customers who want their Goat to stand apart from the crowd. There is also a new 18-inch wheel design with bright spokes that further identifies the ’06 model.
GM’s Performance Division unveiled the Pontiac GTO Ram Air 6 Employee Enthusiasm (EE!) concept vehicles at the 2004 Woodward Dream Cruise. Created for show purposes, the vehicle was completed by GM employee volunteers using parts donated by GM Powertrain, GM Performance Parts, and GM Design Center.
The Yellow Fire Pearl-colored Pontiac ASC GTO Stinger features several new, aggressive-looking body panels made using both ASC’s RIMFormâ„¢ low-investment composites process and ASC’s OmniCarbonâ„¢ carbon-fiber process for low-volume production as well as a short-throw TremecÂ® 6-speed transmission, a scooped hood, a state-of-the-art Sony XplodÂ® sound and DVD system and a custom BorlaÂ® “cat-back” dual exhaust. A Magnuson supercharger on the concept unveiled here today has the potential also to take the horsepower to 550 hp (and the 0-60 mph number to 4.3 seconds).
