AutoHunter Spotlight: 2006 Pontiac GTO

The final year for the Goat

-

Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this modified 2006 Pontiac GTO. A Texas car since new, this Goat for the millennium has 76,577 miles under its belt and features $7,000 in upgrades over the past year. Power comes from an LS2 6.0-liter V8 mated to a six-speed manual transmission and limited-slip differential. Features include hood scoops, carbon fiber rear spoiler, Borla exhaust system, aftermarket wheels, and Alpine audio system, among others. Finished in slate gray over a reupholstered black leather interior, this final-year GTO comes with a clean CARFAX report and clear title in the seller’s name.

The slate gray exterior features an underbody aero kit. Additional equipment includes fog lamps, black-painted hood scoop and rear decklid panel, carbon fiber rear spoiler, and dual exhaust outlets.

Aftermarket satin black multi-spoke aluminum wheels are wrapped in low-profile Nitto tires.

The reupholstered 2+2 interior is trimmed with black leather power-adjustable bucket seats up front. Features include GTO embroidery, power windows and door locks, cruise control, variable-assist power steering, leather-wrapped multi-function steering wheel, air conditioning, Alpine touchscreen stereo, Hinson Motorsports shift knob, tinted windows, dual illuminated vanity mirrors, and aluminum pedals.

Instrumentation includes a 200-mph speedometer, 7,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level and coolant temperature. The digital odometer reads 76,577 miles, which is in line with a recent CARFAX report.

The LS2 6.0-liter V8 was factory-rated at 400 horsepower and 400 lb-ft of torque. After being fitted with a larger camshaft, the LS2 was dyno-tested last year and shown to produce 410 horsepower at the rear wheels. Output is directed to the rear wheels via a console-shifted six-speed manual transmission and a limited-slip differential with 3.46:1 final drive ratio. The hood insulator and valve covers are custom.

Handling comes from a four-wheel independent suspension with stabilizer bars. Braking is provided by ventilated anti-lock discs with red calipers.

The auction for this modified 2006 Pontiac GTO ends Friday, February 9, 2024 at 11:15 a.m. (MST)

Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.

  1. Diego, those are painted factory engine covers. My ’04 aftermarket 7.0L Holden GTO with the Tremec 6spd has the same; mine are TorRed with flake silver insets and red letters.
