Trans Am Bandit is back and better than ever, and Burt Reynolds is behind it
Think we found the perfect car to replace that Dodge Challenger Sterling Archer loved so much.
The Firebird Trans Am is back, with a limited Bandit edition of the car made famous by the "Smokey and the Bandit" movies, all 77 signed by the star himself, Burt Reynolds.
While Pontiac, which produced the Trans Am from 1967 to 2002, ceased production in 2009, the company Trans Am Depot licensed the name and logo from GM in order to produce custom Trans Ams from rebuilt Chevy Camaros. And the results are pretty awesome.
The cars are equipped with more than 230 new parts and supercharged engines that can put out as much as 840 horsepower, according to Tod Warmack of Trans Am Worldwide.
The price tag? From $70,000 for your basic model to $115,000 for the Bandit.
And that’s Burt narrating the video above introducing the new Bandit. But if you’re like Archer, you probably can’t hear him over the sound of your giant, throbbing feeling of excitement.
