Another Mallett on Bring a Trailer, current bid $28,000: #41, Mallett build date 8/06. According to the seller, 229 cars were converted by Mallett when new.

This 2006 Pontiac Solstice was manufactured in January 2006 and modified by Mallett Cars Ltd. of Berea, Ohio the following August with a 6.0-liter GM LS2 V8 and a five-speed manual transmission. Additional equipment includes a 3.42:1 differential, a custom driveshaft, coilover suspension, 19″ wheels, a dual exhaust system with MagnaFlow mufflers, air conditioning, the factory Preferred Package, and more. The seller acquired the car in November 2016 and has since added 1,500 of its 19k indicated miles. This Solstice is offered with an accident-free Carfax report and a clean Kansas title in the seller’s name.

The Solstice was designed by Franz von Holzhausen and shared the GM Kappa platform with the Saturn Sky. According to the seller, 229 cars were converted by Mallett when new. This example is finished in red with a black manually-operated soft top that is shown both raised and stowed under a rear-hinged deck lid. A restyled lower rear valance houses a 3″ dual-exit exhaust system with polished tips.

Aftermarket 19″ wheels wear staggered-width Nankang Ultra Sport NS-II tires which show 2012 date codes and were installed approximately 3k miles ago according to the seller. Mallett/Penske coilovers were fitted during the initial V8 conversion along with polyurethane rear A-arm bushings and differential mounts.

Factory two-tone leather seats feature Mallett V8 headrest embroidery. The car is equipped with the Preferred Package, and amenities consist of air conditioning, power windows/mirrors/locks, a CD player, and a short-throw shifter with an aluminum knob. The cruise control system was disabled during the initial conversion according to the seller. Just over 19k miles are shown on the odometer.

The front-hinged hood opens to reveal a General Motors 6.0-liter LS2 V8 adorned with Mallett-branded carbon fiber covers. Power is sent to the rear wheels through a five-speed manual gearbox with an LS2 clutch, pressure plate, and flywheel as well as a custom driveshaft and a 3.42:1 differential.

Interesting it has all the other usual Mallet Graphic's on it, but not the Number below the radio. I assume the Ford looking V8 badges applied to the front fenders are owner added?

Also interesting to see the different muffler and tail pipes, than my earlier car with the single outlet exhaust.
