2005 Pontiac Grand Prix GXP

Built on the same platform and armed with the same potent drivetrain as the Monte Carlo SS and Impala SS, the new 5.3-liter 303 HP GXP is the first Grand Prix to don a V8 in 20 years, making it arguably the fastest Grand Prix ever built. Although GM put some beefy 255 mm tires up front to cut down on understeer, this thing still has the requisite torque steer inherent in torquey front-wheel-drivers.
