Pontiac puts a price tag on one of the ugliest American vehicles ever. Looking like a flashback from 1980s, the sporty freak of nature will feature a price tag that will probably scare away a great deal of Pontiac’s potential customers leaving only those who always keep a paper bag or two in their pockets.

No, I don’t mean they are going to resurrect the dead and happy about it Pontiac Aztec. I’m talking about the 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP, the misunderstanding on wheels.

The cars will be presented in the sedan and coupe versions and will be priced at $26,795 and $26,595 respectively. The $650 delivery fee is included in both cases.

There will also be a Street Edition appearance package, which will add extra $990 to the GXP’s price.

Besides making the car a real monster (like Quasimodo or that hairy thing from the “Beauty and the Beast” animation, you name it), it also replaces the vehicle’s original hood with the one with larger scoops (Yuk!) and adds a hammerhead spoiler.

The 2008 Pontiac G6 GXP will be motivated by a 3.6-liter DOHC V6 capable of producing 252 hp and 251 lb-ft (340 Nm) of torque and mated to a six-speed automatic gearbox.
