Grand Prix GTP ????

Raced one today on the fly. I was doing about 30km/h in 2nd and I started to gun it. He had a passenger and himself and I had no one in the car. He couldn't catch me at all. Actually I started pulling on him bit by bit. 240hp ??? Probably 200 at the wheels and he didn't stand a chance.

Wierd and I knew he was punching it cause he was being a prick and cut me plus several others off. Put him in his spot

260hp. and 280lb-ft.

The 4-speed still saps LOTS of power, and the weight is in E60 territory, though. 0-60 is 6.8 for the old model, and I think 6.6 for the new.

hmm where did you get that stats?

http://www.gmcanada.com/english/vehi...p_details.html

The new GTP is from gmcanada's website

3.8L "3800" Supercharged V6 (L67)
240 hp @ 5200 rpm
280 lb.-ft. @ 3600 rpm
1610 kg. (3555 lb.) GTP Sedan

even the canadian limited edition has 240HP... maybe you found a stats of a modified GTP

Buddy I don't know what crack you have been smoking but a stock GTP runs low to flat 15 buddy. Check the stats on one then come shoot you mouth off. I know what he was doing and how hard he was pushing it. I was there you where not.

i never heard of a grandprix GTpoo doing high 13`s stock, thats not enough power and too much weight, they are awsome off the line with that ultra long and power first gear but after that they lose their balls. I say it`s 14`s at best.

Yeah that great but I will put down all the moneyin the world and I know for a fact that it is not stock. Stock GTP's will run low 15's period

A supercharged GTP smoked me silly when I tried to race one recently. This was in my auto-e36 though.
I got freaked out when I hear the supercharger whining after we had launched. I had no idea it was blown when he first approached me, what a shock.
I think if I had raced it in my 5psd with very sticky tires I could have had a chance.
