Re: 400hp Pontiac Solstice

I was suprised how heavy those were when they first came out with less than 200hp, but weight becomes less of an issue when you are pushing 400hp. They very bottom of the article mentions a "supercharged 7.0-liter upgrade"!

Re: 400hp Pontiac Solstice

"adding a whopping $38,995 to the price tag of a standard Solstice"

"Base Price: $37,995 (Including $19,955 for the Solstice)"

Doesn't that mean it includes it? from the first few lines of the autoweek article.

That's for an upgraded version of the original kit.

RTFA.

The standard package will set you back $18,000...
and furthermore:
Quote:
The top-end supercharged conversion package, for example, includes a six-speed Tremac transmission with three gear-ratio options; 19-inch alloy wheels and tires; Mallett-Penske double adjustable shocks, coilovers and antiroll bars; transmission and differential coolers; a stainless-steel high-flow exhaust; a 3.73 limited-slip differential; heavy-duty four-core radiator; and a supercharger. That whole shebang turns the Solstice into a screaming 600-hp beast while adding a whopping $38,995 to the price tag of a standard Solstice, which itself starts at less than $20,000.

And then there's this asshole...

I know what you mean... I just bought a daily driver, so I may drop some coin on a cam, headers, tune, and maybe a supercharger. It's just so much fun! Epsecially when people think you've got a V6 under the hood...

Dude, this is a site about literbikes. Pretty hard to find a group of people into more excessive performance as a whole than us.
