I actually saw it in person. Two things I was surprised at:

1) it made no mention of custom paint. I'm relatively sure that Pure wasn't a metallic. This was metallic, possibly even pearl.

2) the engine bay was filthy. You have the hood up at Barrett-Jackson, and didn't take 20 min to attempt to clean up the engine bay?

Thats a lot of money for a modified 2.4 without S/C or T/C. Compare it to the Coupe at 38K with a V8 and I think the Coupe was a deal.

Possible the association to 05 SEMA added provenance appealed to a collector.

"The actual SEMA Design Award winning 2006 Pontiac Solstice. 2005 SEMA Design Award for Best GM Roadster. Customized by RK Sport out of Murietta, CA. It has been featured in no less than four magazines and is one of the most photographed SEMA roadsters ever. Completely customized inside and out, this is truly a unique and collectible piece of automobile, SEMA and GM history."

Wheels look to be rare too: 19" TSW rims (3) and 4 Vderstein Sessanta tires
