As one of the oldest and finest tuners of GM performance cars, Lingenfelter has the right to convert the new Chevy Camaro into a modern day Pontiac Trans Am! As you know the Pontiac brand and all of its heritage is being killed as part of GM’s reconstruction plan, so this project is actually a great tribute to the brand and one of the coolest cars of all time, the Trans Am.
The car has been in development phase in the past three years but they are going to show it for the first time as a concept at the upcoming SEMA show in Las Vegas next month. The car is powered by a 455 cubic inch V8 engine modified with cylinder heads, pistons and crankshaft along with Corsa custom exhaust to develop 655 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque.
The Camaro Tran Am features custom made Honeycomb wheels with size of 20×10-inch for front and 20×11 at the back covered with 275/40-front and 315/35-back NITTO tires. The car also has a custom classic interior resembling the original Trans Am.
