Pontiac Grand Prix – 1997 PPG Pace Car

A less wide brother of the 300 GPX concept.


As a glance, it looks like the 1997 Pontiac 300 GPX concept car in these photos. However, upon closer inspection the hood scoops are slightly more rounded at the corners, the wheels not as wide, and the fenders not as flared. I’m guessing this is a 1997 model, being parked beside the 1997 Nissan Maxima Pace Car in these photos.


This Grand Prix features a functional Ram Air Hood, 18″ wheels wrapped in Goodyear Eagle 235/40ZR18 tires, Brembo 4-wheel disc brake, roll cage, fuel cell, dual Halon fire suppression system, and 4-point safety belts. The color isĀ PPG’s Deltron “Sargent Pepper Red” paint.

  • I’m trying to locate one of those hoods. Can anyone direct me to where I can find one, what brand it might be, etc.? Willing to pay, as it’s going on a tribute/memorial car for a close friend lost to Cystic Fibrosis.

    • It is a Ram Air GTX hood that was sold by SLP. Pretty rare to find them nowadays.
