1986 Grand Prix 2+2 Aerocoupe. Extremely rare collector car. 1 of 1118 ever made!
The 1986 model year was significant because it was the only year for the Grand Prix 2+2, a NASCAR-inspired street machine. The 2+2 was designed and built to homologate the body style for NASCAR competition. The body modifications that separated the standard GP from the 2+2 were obviously implemented to give NASCAR Pontiac racers an aerodynamic advantage. In fact, it was “The King” himself, Richard Petty, who originally proposed the idea of an aero-style GP for high-banks racing. Richard Petty Enterprises built a prototype of such a vehicle in 1983. The production 2+2 was indeed a slippery piece. Up front, the fascia panel was constructed of urethane and was heavily sloped. The grille was of a honey mesh pattern, and a front spoiler provided additional cooling and reduced wind resistance. The rear section of the car was also heavily modified. The aerodynamically inefficient notchback roof design was smoothed over with a large bubble-like rear window and an abbreviated rear trunklid with a spoiler. The trunklid itself covered a very small opening, which would just barely admit a space-saver spare tire. With a limited production run of only 1,118 units, the body style was not seen as an economically feasible alternative. The lack of a hatchback arrangement did in fact make it a cumbersome grocery-getter. Unfortunately, the performance of the 2+2 was not quite as exciting as its racy exterior might suggest. period. The exterior of all regular-production 2+2s came only one way— with an attractive two-tone paint scheme featuring silver above the beltline, charcoal gray below and red accent striping between, plus blacked-out window trim. All 2+2s were “no-option” vehicles, meaning they only came fully loaded.
