    Friday April 15, 6:20 pm ET

    DETROIT, April 15 /PRNewswire/ -- One thousand lucky driving enthusiasts are looking forward to receiving an exclusive version of the new Pontiac Solstice roadster after being first in line to participate in a special promotion announced on Thursday night's episode of NBC's The Apprentice. Only 41 minutes were required to sell out of the specially-badged "First 1,000" Solstices.

    "With the great response we've seen to the design and performance features being offered in our new Pontiacs, we were expecting many customers to jump at the chance to order one of the first Solstices," said John Larson, general manager of Buick-Pontiac-GMC. "But we were thrilled that we achieved such amazing results so quickly."

    Orders were received from more than 650 dealers in 47 states. Additionally, more than 4,000 customers have asked to be placed on the wait list for one of the exclusive vehicles.

    The Solstice early order program will continue through Sunday, April 24. Although the exclusive "First 1,000" cars have been ordered, Pontiac dealers have an additional allotment of Solstices available for pre-order during this period.

    It could be one of the best cars you can buy for the price. Starts under $20k. 253hp turbocharged model will be available later.

    i dont really like the front end on the solstice...still cool though...wouldnt keep me from buying one...but....

    the saturn sky > solstice

    hopefully they will actually put this into production.....the redline is a pretty big turn for saturn, but the sky and aura would be HUGE

    I was actually worried pontiac wouldn't do that, but it looks to be a real nice car, can't wait until people actually get to drive it to see how it moves
