The Mallet Pitbull Edition V8 conversion for the Pontiac Solstice
features both drastic performance and cosmetic upgrades. Under
the hood Mallet have shoehorned in the V8 engine from the Corvette,
either the LS2 from the C6 or the 500 horsepower LS7 engine
from the ZO6.
Further performance upgrades featured on the Mallet Pitbull
Edition V8 Pontiac Solstice include a Luk Gold clutch which
helps transfer the incredible power of the V8 without slipping,
yet allows for smooth clutch engagement, a short throw shifter
which shortens the throw in comparison to the stock shifter
allowing for quicker more precise shifting of the standard 5-speed
transmission, high performance brakes with stainless brake lines
and Mallett-Penske sports shock absorbers.
The new 6 piece fiberglass (carbon
fibre optional) body conversion incorporates 4 inch wide
front arches and 5 inch wide rear arches as well as ultra-aggressive
front and rear bumpers and sideskirts
Only a limited number of Pitbull Edition V8 Pontiac Solstices
will be built featuring signature badging.
