Sweet car! That's a quick time too. Sweet and clean looking too. Never really thought white was the best looking color, but my car is white too. The car itself is more important to me than the color.

Test drove a stock '09 G8 GT, didn't feel much quicker than my car, but it felt a whole lot nicer. A well modified G8 like yours must be a blast to drive.

I like the white exterior w/ onyx-red interior combo, that's appealing to the eye. That ride is _clean_ you have a great find on your hands there. Enjoy!

Just curious, how much does it weigh? Clean car, I have a soft spot for most cars in white with a black interior. Badass my man.

The G8 is around 4000 pounds, which is a little heavier than some cars. But it's built very well and has a great ride.
