21. Pontiac Grand Prix GXP
Despite the name, most drivers don’t consider the Pontiac Grand Prix to be a performance car. In fact, by the early 2000s, it was just an ordinary GM sedan. However, when they presented the GXP package, suddenly the front wheel drive Grand Prix became a hot performance car.
The GXP package consisted of 5.3-liter V8 with 303 HP going to the front axle, a revised suspension and gearbox. With all that, Pontiac transformed the family sedan into a highway missile. In fact, the GM engineers invested a lot of time to make this front wheel drive car perform and handle like a European performance sedan.
