Hello G8 Family!
After purchasing the car from this website, I feel it's only right that I first post it here to see if anyone is interested. I adore this car in so many ways that I cannot explain. I can't even believe I'm considering this, but I have a garage queen. When I first got it nearly 5 years ago, it was my primary transportation and I put about 5k miles on it in the first year. Since then, I purchased a commuter and have only put about 1k on it each year. I still enjoy driving it quite a lot, there is simply nothing like the experience, but I don't drive it as much as I want to. Featured in LSX Magazine. It was originally owned by Livernois, where it's build was fully documented. It was the testbed for their LS3 mini-stroker block. These are no longer available, and to my knowledge this is a completely bespoke engine as I have not seen or heard of another one being installed in any other car. It runs great and has been very reliable.

Wow.
Pride of ownership written all over this GXP
Great combo of show and a lotta go
Not a knock or a shot at you but at that price your most likely "happily keeping it" and there's nothing wrong with that.
Drive safe

Really like the suede inserts, great car.
It's definitely one of my favorite features of the car. Makes it feel a lot more special. They should have been like this from the factory!

Sale pending. Do you still need the name even if he is not on this forum?
