Undoubtedly, there are cars that, beyond their qualities or their performance, have achieved fame thanks to their appearances in the cinema. Who doesn't remember the 1977 movie “Smokey and the Bandit”, with Burt Reynolds behind the wheel of his Pontiac Trans Am “Bandit”? That was a black and gold special edition with an impressive firebird painted on the front hood.
The Pontiac Firebird was introduced in 1967, and shared its platform with similar models from other General Motors brands, such as the Chevrolet Camaro. The Firebird was in production in its different generations until 2002.
The second generation of the Firebird was produced between 1970 and 1981, and the most important innovation from 1977 was the new front with four square headlamps with their own housing and the lower split grille.
There were two engine options for the Trans Am, in both cases two 6.6-litre V8s, but they made different levels of power. The most common, which equipped models sold in 49 North American states, delivered 203 hp of power, while in California and other high-altitude states an Oldsmobile source block with 188 hp was used. In any case, the “official” power figures were quite conservative, especially considering that in various tests of the time on the power bench, values between 260 and 280 hp were reached.
Despite its heavy weight of 1,605 kg, the Trans Am had a top speed of 210 km/h.
