Pontiac GTO "Six-Pack" Is a Whole Lotta Muscle in Renegade Rendering

These days when Detroit's Big Three are working to bring the muscle cars into the EV era, you can never have too much of the old ones to keep the mind busy until the fog lifts, and we get a clear view of the plug-path that lies ahead. Cue in the original Pontiac GTO, the machine that comes to most enthusiasts' minds when the genre is mentioned.

Back in the early 1960s, this Poncho used a recipe that would become a major hit, mixing an intermediate platform with a V8 destined for a large body. What started out as an option package for the Pontiac Tempest in 1964 became a standalone model in 1966, and the legend kept building from that point.

The model portrayed in this extreme digital build is a 1965 one, and it looks like Yasid Oozeear, the digital artist behind the work, stayed true to the spirit of the machine, albeit not in a way you'd expect.

The said model year saw the entire Tempest range, GTO included, receive an update that boosted the length by 3.1 inches (79 mm), albeit with the wheelbase remaining unchanged. In a way, those two aspects also describe the contraption we have here, though with it having gained an extra axle up front.

As a result of the six-wheel configuration, which explains the nickname we used in the title, the proportions of the vehicle now resemble something you'd expect to find in the open-world RPG that is Cyberpunk 2077. With the gaming title being on so many aficionados' minds, it's no wonder that such a piece of digital art was born.

Those wishing to stick to the usual number of wheels have also had their needs catered to since the pixel portrait includes a second custom take on the GTO.

As is the case with the... six-pack described above (apparently, it's wheels over carbs with this one), the not-that-normal version has also been brought closer to the road, though not to the same extent. Or maybe the air springs hadn't been fully compressed for this shot.

Unlike its big brother, this incarnation doesn't have a supercharger sticking through the hood, though. Once again, that's a nod to those who prefer more conservative builds, even though the roll cage redefining the appearance of the cabin might get in the way of that conclusion.
