The 2016 Pontiac Trans Am is a vehicle that’s not produced as classic old Firebird Trans Am models since Pontiac GM division is out of business for more than 5 years now.

The only licensed body shop that does this kind of work is Trans Am Depot which is very experienced with turning any vehicle that rolls on four wheels into a Trans Am. They made few different TA models, 6T9 are the ones based on the 1969 model look, while the 7T7 are the ones based on 1977 model year styling of this famous American muscle car. There’s also a Hurst TA which is made in cooperation with Hurst High Performance Vehicle.
When it comes to exterior these cars look astonishingly beautiful and sporty. They come with numerous expensive design solutions that are placed on the Camaro body and some of those are the following: Eibach 1″ drop spring and Anti Roll Kit, Hurst made Deep Dish 5 spoke wheels rolled in Pirelli P Zero sporty tires, with drop fender extractors on top. Hood is one of the most prestigious pieces of each new vehicle since most of the them come with some unusual character lines, big air intakes and a fire bird logo that covers big part of the hood, which is one of the things that makes this vehicle looking like a real Trans Am. Hurst version for example comes with RTM OE Style Shaker hood and air intake shaker scoop on top of it.
