ST will likely not be used much for hauling joists and sonotubes, and General Motors
took note of that before preparing one for SEMA
. Instead, the concept has been dolled up with goodies that may make it to the GM
Accessories catalog once the G8
ST goes on sale in late 2009. The most visible enhancements are on the outside. The paint is called Liquid Hot, and custom 20-inch wheels handsomely stuff the fenders. Making the car look more menacing is a reduced ride height, too. Inside, interior tweaks dress up the seats, the steering wheel and the shift knob with red inserts, and GM Accessories is contemplating making the custom interior trim kit and hard tonneau cover on the SEMA
car available for purchase. With its vestigial bed and big V8, we predict the G8 ST will be hauling mostly ass.
