Have yet to see a GXP with rally stripes and hopefully that won't ever change.

Lol.. Mine came with them. Not something I would have ordered but at least it makes the car more rare, I guess. I think the dark maroon or orange would look better with them than red. Anyone know how many were produced? I would never add rally stripes onto a car; but if they're underneath the clearcoat, I won't remove them.

Actually mark_roget also has a LR GXP with the Factory Stripe Package. He is out of CO. Please drop me a PM with last 6 digits of your VIN, and I will get you all your specific production info, and make note of your car having the stripe package as well.

Stripes are always very subjective. I think the Liquid Red cars are the only ones that manage to make the stripes look pretty decent. Those who have them seem to like them though. It's their car, it's their call.

It has been awhile since I have updated the current status of the G8 GXP Registry. I am proud to say that I now have the owners of 711 of the 1829 GXPs tracked down (38.87% of total production). Considering the amount of time and effort this has required over the years, I am pretty proud of that! If you are the owner of a G8 GXP, or know someone who owns one, please get in touch with me. I only need to last 6 digits of the VIN to confirm all specific production info. There are still plenty of GXP owners on this site who have not had their GXPs confirmed on the Registry. Please check this thread to see if your screenname is on there:

I want to G8 GXP Registry to be as complete and accurate as possible!

Thank You!

The last GT I saw on a dealer lot had those stripes. It was just a couple of months ago,but I don't know where the car went. It sold pretty quickly.

Well, over the last 3 months I have increased the number of GXPs that I have linked to a specific owner. The G8 GXP Registry now has owners of 720 of the 1829 GXPs produced. That is 39.37% of the total production. We only need 12 more owners to get us to the 40% mark. I am looking forward to hitting that milestone. If you own a G8 GXP and have not gotten your specific production info, please send me a PM with the last 6 digits of your VIN. Even if you are someone who wants to maintain your privacy, please reach out to me. I have a number of owners who have specifically requested that they will only share their info if I keep them private. I have, and will, always honor that request. I was in military intelligence and held a Top Secret SCI Security Clearance, so I have a long track record of maintaining secrets. I just want to make sure that the G8 GXP Registry is as complete as it possibly can be. This helps the entire community, and I believe that it will be even more beneficial as time passes. Please keep your info coming!

Thanks!

oh i thought it would have locations
Be patient! I am still hoping to get an official "G8 GXP Registry" website set up that will list ALL G8 GXPs, as well as the current/last know location. Up until now, I have been gathering all the data and compiling it in an Excel spreadsheet. There is A LOT OF DATA in it by now. I am not very tech savvy, so I am still trying to figure out the most cost effective and easy to maintain way to set up, design, and manage the website. I am also trying to figure out a way to fund it. I have done all this research and work for years, and given out the info at no cost. I cannot however subsidize the expense of setting up the website and maintaining it though. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions, I am "all ears!"

I haven't updated this for awhile, so I figured that I would pop in to let everyone know the status of the G8 GXP Registry. I have now tracked down the owners of 726 GXPs (39.69% of total production). We only need to document 6 more cars to get over the 40% threshhold. Some former owners have parted with their GXPs, and I haven't always been contacted by, or notified of, the new owners, so that contributes to the slower progress. If you own a G8 GXP, and haven't reached out to me, please do so. I just need the last 6 digits of your VIN, and I will give you all the specific production info on your car. If you know of someone who owns a G8 GXP, please have them reach out to me as well. If you spot a G8 GXP at a show or otherwise "in the wild", please try to notify me as well. These may be cars that I have not been able to track down a location for yet. Just note last 6 digits of the VIN, the state of its license plate, and where and when you spotted it. Doing this is alot of work, but it is made easier with assistance from others in the community. Thank you!

I just got my "new" G8 GXP last week and thought I'd see if you've already seen this VIN previously. I'll PM the VIN to the OP to check it out.

Just as a conversation starter, it's silver (is that MSM?), Automatic with a sun-roof, with Onyx interior. It only had 31k miles on it last week. That's gonna change soon. This car is a BLAST to drive!
