Pontiac has transformed the Solstice GXP into the Solstice SD-290 race concept which takes the core minimalist vintage racecar characteristics and sculpts it into this exciting design study.

Taking the Audi TT Clubsport quattro concept one step forward, Pontiac has transformed the Solstice GXP into the Solstice SD-290 race concept which takes the core minimalist vintage racecar characteristics and sculpts it into this exciting design study.

Clearly the roofless design makes obviously contributions to weight reduction but also absent are remaining unnecessary components such as climate control, windshield with wiper system, side glass with window regulators and convertible hard top.  For added authenticity, the Solstice SD-290 gets a racing seat with four-point shoulder harness plus removable steering wheel.

The Solstice SD-290 uses the 2.0-liter Ecotec turbo engine good for 290hp as well as the already available Club Sport Z0K suspension package. For the body, Pontiac designed new front bumper fascia, fender side grille vents, new hood with heat vents, center mounted stacked dual exhaust tips and a cockpit tonneau hard cover for the passenger side with integrated rear view mirror.

Chassis gets upgrade with KW coilovers, three-piston aluminum brake calipers with 13-inch rotors, forged 19-inch wheels with non-street legal Hoosier R6 racing slicks.
