With less than 1,000 models produced, the Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe is a seldom-seen car from a now-discontinued GM brand that is bound to become an interesting collector’s car in the years ahead.
While the market for collector’s-grade Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupes is probably pretty small, we believe we may have found one of the best examples in existence – if not the best period. This gorgeous Aggressive Red-painted 2009 Pontiac Solstice GXP Coupe, currently listed for auction on Bring-A-Trailer, has just 118 miles on the odometer and comes with all the original manufacturer’s literature, the original Monroney sticker, in-period Solstice sales brochures and even a set of original GXP floormats in the factory plastic wrapping. Pontiac fans will be hard-pressed to find a nicer Solstice GXP Coupe than this.
The only downside to this showroom-new 2009 Solstice GXP is the transmission. This is a car that’s made much more fun by virtue of having three pedals and a stick, but unfortunately, the original buyer ordered it with the optional five-speed automatic. As many readers will already know, the Solstice GXP came standard with a turbocharged 2.0L Ecotec I-4 producing a respectable 260 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque. Other highlights of the GXP trim include unique front and rear fasciae, polished 18-inch wheels, factory Bilstein shocks and GXP-branded bucket seats, among other equipment.
This vehicle was sold to the first owner by Al Serra Buick GMC of Grand Blanc, Michigan, for a total of $37,405. It has already attracted a high bid of $15,000 on Bring-A-Trailer as of this writing with seven days left on the auction, so it seems as though there is genuine interest in this concours-worthy coupe.
