Power, Performance and Style

2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP 4dr Sedan (3.8L 6cyl S/C 4A)
I am a driver in my mid 40's. I guess I've become bored with the average sedan. Looking for something a little different. This is it! This gives me the sporty look I wanted, the power to get there fast, and the comfort I desired. The car is loaded. The 2002 Pontiac Grand Prix GTP has great acceleration and has lots of toys. The salesperson pointed out the Eyecue Heads up Display. He informed me the GM had bought out Hughes Aircraft back in the 80's. Hughes makes the F-16 fighter jet. He asked if I had ever seen Tom Cruise in Top Gun. I said sure. Well remember when the jet information was projected onto his windshield .... check this out..the same technology was in my Grand Prix!
The GTP comes standard with the 3.8 supercharged V-6 engine. According to Ward's Auto World - "one of the ten best engines ever built". Additionally, this vehicle has all the toys. Naturally, all the power assists. But my favorite is the heads up display which projects info onto the windshield
The only improvement might be a little more headroom. I'm 6'3" and with the power sunroof it's a little cramped.
