G8 NAIAS Unveiling Pics!

Ok, it took a few days but here are some of the pics I took at the G8 unveiling which took place at 7:30AM Saturday at NAIAS before the doors opened to the public. Special thanks again to Bob Sellers Pontiac for setting up this event!



G8 GT in Panther Black (metallic)






The sedan V6 in Magnetic Grey Metallic


The battery is on the left behind the sidewall




Cupholders and flat surface on the rear passthru when it's folded down


Cupholder in the rear door. Note the center of the door is covered in leather including the handle. The hard plastic is below it. There is even a double stiched seam in the leather just below the door lever running parallel to the beltline (not pictured). I can't remember if the top of the door where you'd rest your arm with the windows open was vinyl or something else.

Notice the power port below the HVAC controls on the right


And another 12v power port in the center console. Also room for whatever goofy Australian coins you may have in your pockets


A dead pedal, but still one pedal missing.....


The welcome screen


One of the menu screens- navigate by pressing the round menu button to the right and rotating to scroll up or down. The Ipod port is just below and to the right of the Menu button

Are the up/down window switches in the center and not on the door?

Garage
Nice square space in the trunk and not a bad size pass-through either. I've definitely seen worse. It'll do. Thanks for the pics!

Probably OnStar. They want it close to the non-crumple core of the vehicle to survive any incident. Same reason the battery is in trunk, even though they tell us its for weight distribution.


Anyone else notice that the interiors in all pics so far from Detropit look gray and not black? Is it just the lighting? To me, onyx is supposed to be blacker than black.
