G-Force takes the Grand Prix Wide Track Handling system to a higher level with a chassis, wheel and tire configuration designed to achieve .85G of lateral acceleration force.
The interior of the Grand Prix G-Force was designed around the driver to enhance the feel of control and increase comfort. Color, texture and design are combined with the traditional Pontiac driver's 'cockpit' environment to blend the needs of a performance coupe with the style and comfort of a touring sedan. Taking Pontiac's trademark cockpit driver orientation a step further, G-Force includes a center panel angled toward the driver and features a novel approach to '2+2' seating that uses race-inspired oversized bucket seats with integrated headrests to combine comfort and functionality. A satin nickel finish on the instrument panel gauges and drilled aluminium pedal covers apply a healthy dose of enthusiast attitude to the refined look of the G-Force interior. Adding thrill and control to G-Force is the manually controlled automatic transmission. Touch Activated Controls, or TACshift, resemble Formula 1 race cars by putting gear-shifting controls within easy visual and tactile reach. Through TACshift, the driver can shift faster than an automatic transmission, which increases control and the overall enjoyment of the driving experience.
The Wide Track Grand Prix is known for its handling characteristics, but the G-Force show car takes Wide Track handling to an even higher level with the goal of creating a chassis that gives the driver an edge in all conditions. Handling components on G-Force that contribute to this end include a front direct-acting stabilizer bar, StabiliTrak 4-channel vehicle dynamic control system, electronic dynamic front/rear proportioning and adjustable rebound struts at all corners. G-Force also features large cross-drilled rotors and aluminium calipers to provide greater confidence and control.
