The new 2016 Trans Am SE Bandit Edition is going to be a convertible or a coupe. The buyer will be able to choose between those two models. The base of the 2016 Trans Am SE Bandit Edition is going to be a good old Chevrolet Camaro. They look alike, indeed, but Pontiac should see the light of the day in 2015, so it will have a new technology installed in it. The Trans Am was a package for the Pontiac Firebird, but with upgraded handling, horsepower and suspension, and also with the visual modification of a hoods, spoilers, lights and wheels. Let’s just imagine how will the new look hit the new model, the 2016 Bandit Edition.

As the Trans Am Depot is tuned up Firebird, it has to be strong enough to justify the name of Trans Am. The engine is custom too so you can choose from the 3.7 liter V6 with more than 310 horsepowers. The second unit is going to be, the 5.0 V8 with about 425 horsepowers and amazing 400 lb-ft of torque. The 6.2 engine is a if you really want it. The car will hit the 60 mph in only 4 seconds with a stopping distance of 106 feet. The estimated fuel consumption is 25mpg, which is nice for car this powerful. As the engine is so powerful, the suspension and the brakes should follow the horses in power, if you know what I mean. The car suspension will know the weight of the car and will, surely, stick the vehicle to every corner driver rushes in. As we mentioned earlier in this article, the brakes will be able to fully stop the car in 106 feet if driver is going to ride this beauty only 60 mph. It is only a bit longer than the third of a football field, which is 300 feet long. Amazing, isn’t it?

  1. There’s a company in Miami Florida that takes the Camaros and puts body kits and interior packages in…. cost is like $63,000 on top of the price of the car.

  2. While the vehicle displayed in the images seen above may look like a 2015 Pontiac Firebird, the pictured car was not built by General Motors and is not a true Pontiac Trans Am. The vehicle is a custom car created by a Florida based company called the Trans Am Depot, and yes it is Trans Am SE Bandit:

  3. Its beautiful and powerful, I will have to have it. I have faith that it will be so. Trans Am and Firebird and Camaro have been around a long time, they are different beast created by two different divisions and general motors knows a great car when they see it. Scam maybe, but I’ve seen it with my own eyes. General Motors needs to build it as a limited special production model, they will make millions, and Camaro will have to step it up to match such a beautiful and powerful car. The flaming bird insignia is way better then the old single dimension insignia of the past. As I see it no factory production car matches up to the new TransAm Firebird.

  4. Trans-Am Depot is in Florida, The Bandit Model starts @ $ 127,000 USD and climbs to about $ 160,000 including upgrades and 840HP 7.4 LTR / 454ci Supercharged . . . Last week Trans-Am Depot announced a Revised Alpha Edition based on the the 6th Gen Camaro with an optional 10spd F-1 Paddle Shift available from April 2017 and confirmed by Trans-Am Depot and Motor Trend Magazine
