SLP Performance Parts is literally breathing new life into the rather dying Pontiac brand. SLP has strapped a supercharger into the Pontiac G8 GT, changed a few parts and called it a G8 GT Firehawk. The Firehawk name has a strong following with Firebird enthusiasts.
Taking the standard G8 GT V8 engine SLP added a supercharger, stainless steel exhaust system and a cold air induction system. All in all the package returns a power figure of 500hp (373kW). The wheels are 19-inch alloys which are painted in gun metal grey with P245/40R19 Potenza tyres wrapped around them. They run on a sports suspension system.
There is no mistaking this car for something other than a Firehawk modification. It comes fitted with a black SLP rear spoiler, Firehawk badges, faux leather portfolio, floor mats and Firehawk embroidered headrests.
All this is available to the keen Pontiac G8 GT supporter with an extra US$18,995 on top of the G8 price. A stronger brake kit will add US$4,995 to that price.
