Had it, sold it after I got the K20D. Nothing special except the color, and the leather shoulder strap.

Main Features of the PENTAX K10D Grand Prix Package

1. For this limited-edition package, a dark-brown rubber is specially applied to the camera body and the battery grip.
2. The PENTAX logo on the camera's pentaprism housing, the K10D logo at the upper-left corner of the camera's front panel, and the mode digital indications are in a standard gold color signifying the limited-edition status. The “CAMERA GRAND PRIX 2007“ lettering and the award logo mark are also displayed on the lower part of the LCD monitor of the camera's back panel.
3. The specially designed leather camera strap features the “CAMERA GRAND PRIX 2007“ lettering, the award logo mark, and the K10D logo, in the same gold color.
4. Each camera body is identified with a serial number, which is exclusive to the PENTAX K10D Grand Prix Package.
5. The latest firmware (Ver.1.30), corresponding to SDM system, has been installed in the camera. PENTAX K10D GP's camera body is corresponding to a supersonic motor-driven lens. SDM system mounted on a new-generation supersonic motor-driven lens assures smoother, quieter autofocusing operation using a build in supersonic motor.

Yep only the color and the strap.
