2007 Chicago Auto Show: 2008 Pontiac G8

GM answers the rear-wheel drive full-size sedan question with the all-new Pontiac G8. The angled auto is based on a popular Australian sedan and will hit the U.S. in August with a choice of a 260 hp V-6 engine or 360 hp V-8.

That’s some serious power going to rear wheels, a set-up enthusiasts have been clamoring for ever since … well, forever, but especially since Chrysler introduced the 300C.

We’re most excited about, well, the V-8, but the interior looks to be of a high quality ,similar to the now-defunct GTO, also based on an Australian GM vehicle. More photos below and more information will be coming from the show floor later today.

Full report and live photos from the show floor.
