2006 Pontiac GTO Could Be The Lowest Mileage Example In The World

Even though the fifth and final generation of the Pontiac GTO wasn’t in any way iconic or as memorable as the first two, this particular 2006 example might be worth a look.

Its main selling point is the fact that it has just 468 miles (753 km) showing on the odo and its 6.0-liter LS2 V8 is paired to a 6-speed manual transmission and things get somewhat interesting.

Aside from its powertrain configuration, this 2006 GTO also comes with a Cyclone Gray Metallic exterior, black leather interior, traction control, a limited slip rear differential, driver and passenger front airbags, 2+2 sport bucket seats, 8-way power front seats, 200-watt 10-speaker audio system, 6-disc CD changer, multi-function steering wheel, cruise control, dual exhaust tips, front fog lights, a rear spoiler, hood scoops and 17-inch 5-spoke alloy wheels.

It’s only had two prior owners, neither of which got behind the wheel to drive it all that much, which makes it as good as new despite being almost 13 years old.

As for performance, this should prove quick even by today’s standards. The V8 power unit puts down 400 HP (297.9 kW) at 5,900 rpm, as well as 400 lb-ft (546 Nm) of torque. In a straight line, this 2006 GTO can get you from zero to 60 mph (96 km/h) in a little under 5 seconds, which is more than respectable.

The car is currently listed for sale on Sky Motor Cars for $29,980. So, would you even consider taking the plunge or would you rather spend your hard-earned on something else?

    I guess a collector would see the value in it maybe but I don’t… I don’t think I would do 10k let alone almost 30k

  • Yobobjm

    Tbh I see the value in it… It’s a basically brand new car of a breed they don’t make anymore. $30k seems quite reasonable!

    I never really cared much for these, despite being a huge Pontiac fan. The exterior is too jelly bean for a muscle car, and they weigh a good 3,700+ lbs. (admittedly not that heavy by modern standards, where the Camaro SS weighs about the same, and the Mustang GT about 100 lbs. more). It was a solid engineering effort from Holden as the Monaro, but fell short in the looks department. The older 5.7L LS1 in the 2004 cars was one of the best sounding factory exhausts I have ever heard though. And the GTO Ram Air 6 concept made it look a bit more appealing:

    This car hasn’t aged well, is too new, and was the swan song of a failed brand. Maybe it’ll be desirable one day, but this is not that day. $30k is a lot for this. But y’never know… a young kid may have always wanted one, and now he can have it.

  • ConservativeIQZero

    GM was so damn cheap they left the Australian right hand drive radio in so the volume control is on the passenger side in left hand drive American cars. I mean come on.

      Most car makers do that today in reverse.

    • Mr_Fanta_Pants

      Get over it. Us Aussies have to deal with it with almost every car sold here.

  • MrChainBlueLightnin

    A ‘Holden’ GTO is about as American as a Sears poncho. It’s an insult to the Pontiac brand and whoever is foolish enough to pay anywhere close to $30 grand for a 13 year old car of little to no consequence deserves what they get. A real GTO is from 1964-1971. And I know that they made em until 1974, but that car was a Chevy Nova and about three others. Waste of money.

    • ksegg

      Spot. On.

      This car for sale is nothing but a badge-engineered mess.

      Nothing “GTO” about it. Insulting to original GTO, which is a masterpiece.

  • Big Black Duck

    GM garbage

  • THE ORIGINAL OWNER OBVIOUSLY HAD NO INTENTION OF DRIVING IT WHICH IS A SHAME, SPEC WISE IT’S NICE. THE DREARY COLOR COMBO MAY NOT HELP THE DATED DESIGN.

  • Bash

    I don’t mind it at all. at 2/3 of that asking price, it would be a reasonable bargain.

  • Adam

    Cars in the 80s were square. The 90s were rounded and this car was based on a 1998 model Holden Commodore. This GTO is a rebadged Holden Monaro.

  • Alex

    In Australia the Monaro still has a fairly devoted following and I will never understand why. That iteration was just bland looking in every which way.

  • ksegg

    Man this car did NOT age well.

  • Emery Walker

    Here’s mine. I bought it in 2007 and it just ticked over 100K. It’s funny hearing all the opinions. Mine.. KW coil overs, sway bars, 19″ wheels. It’s heavy, but not as heavy as some of the new cars coming out. And yes, it handles very well and has kept it’s value. 400hp/400tq. $30K is too high, but I’ll take mine thank you! https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/7ec5f722c31d4c8a2a17d535a8e698476542f17598856f1c2b7cb058f17ac2f1.jpg

  • gibgibgib

    couple things to note… it looks a lot better without the rear wing; it’s unfortunate they saddled it with only 17 inch wheels & the main thing to remember is that this is a coupe version of a sedan that launched in 1997

  • Bill Nguyen

    Ooh, a steroids Cavalier!

    • Ben

      *Oh, a Cavalier on steroids!

      • Bill Nguyen

        Yeah, that’s what I meant hehe

  • Matt

    I don’t understand how being entered into a racing class gives the car ‘pedigree’? It’s not as though the racing series benefited the road car in any way.
