Remember the Holden Coupe 60 Concept unveiled at the end of February? Pontiac wants to put it into reality and as as result in the next three years we will see a production version of it. The future model wil be a GXP Coupe version of the current G8 and will compete with the future Camaro SS, Ford Shelby Mustang GT500KR and Dodge Challenger SRT8.

The G8 GXP Coupe will be powered by a 402-horsepower LS3 6.2-liter V8 (same used in the G8 GXP sedan). The G8 Coupe GXP won’t be a true hardtop like the Holden Coupe 60 Concept. Like the Camaro and Challenger it will grow a B-pillar and fixed rear side glass in production trim.

It will feature the GXP sedan’s 19-inch wheels, 245/40ZR19-spec summer tires and a version of the GXP’s aggressive front fascia. That rolling gear would be attached to the sedan’s stiff FE3 suspension and, like the sedan, the GXP coupe would offer an optional Tremec six-speed manual transmission.
