VIDEO: Trans Am Depot’s Super Duty Trans Am

750x300-1.1

While the official unveiling will go down at the New York Auto Show on the 14th of April, we already know quite a bit about this 1000hp Trans Am Super Duty, and trust us, it’s all good! We haven’t been this excited about a special build since the release of the limited run Trans Am Depot Bandit Trans Am.

This is the first Trans Am completed by Trans Am Depot on the Alpha platform. The company had wild success recent with the Bandit Edition Trans Am, and went all in with the Outlaw Series and premier limited edition Super Duty for 2017. Like the other toys made by the company, this will have a limited production run — starting May 1st, 2017, they will release 50 of these beasts for purchase.

The standard equipment engine will have a 455ci 7.4L displacement with 2.3L Magnuson Supercharger — bringing the total output to 1000 horsepower and 1046 lbs.-ft. of torque. It’s also equipped with ceramic coated headers that feed into a 3” exhaust with sport tips. Brembo Monoblock 6-piston calipers give it the major stopping power it needs to handle the high powered beast. It will roll on 10-spoke Crawler race wheels, wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4s tires. Inside, you’ll find a retro interior with retro gauge package, Trans Am SD shifter handle, 455 embroidered head rests, SD embroidered seat rests, and custom accents throughout. See the full spec sheet here.

When the sale goes live, an Order button will appear on the car’s feature page, and the first 50 people to complete their paperwork and place their deposits will get the new 2017 Trans Am Super Duty. If history repeats itself, it won’t take long for these to sell out. After May 1st, the first delivery will probably take place in about 180 days, so it will be at least until then before we spot one in the wild!

    Sorry, but thats a Camaro, through and through. No matter how many screaming chickens, front fascia revisions, wheels, etc, with no Pontiac, theres no Firebird/Trans Am. I cant understand why anyone would shell-out all that cash for an imposter bird, rather than go to an auction and buy beautiful examples of the real thing. And if you want a 5th or 6th-Gen Camaro, they’re are plenty of those to choose from as well. These CamaroAms are just wishful thinking and in my opinion, a huge wast of time and money. Maybe these talented shops should buy-up a bunch of 4th-Gen birds and upgrade them seven ways to Sunday, kinda the Way YearOne does with the 2nd-Gen Cars. If I won one of these fakes in a contest or something, I’d sell it and buy myself a bunch of real deal Pontiac’s…and pay some bills.
