Report: This super-rare Pontiac Banshee could fetch $600k at the block

One truly rare Pontiac is about to cross the auction block.

Meet the Pontiac Banshee XP-833 Concept Car, which was the automaker’s pitch to a small, two-seat sports car in the 1960s.

It was built during the time when John Z. DeLorean was running the show as an engineer for Pontiac since 1956. Using the parts bin of the 1964 Pontiac Tempest and Pontiac’s at-the-time 230-cu in (3.8L) OHC straight-six mated to a four-speed manual, the Banshee was pegged to compete against the likes of the Opel GT and the C3 Corvette.

Only two examples exist today: the silver coupe about to the cross the Dragone Auction block and a white convertible.

It’s estimated to sell for around $600,000.
