The Sunfire Yellow exterior also comes with silver and gray stripes (hood, doors, quarter panels), plus pop-up headlights, integrated fog lights, functional hood scoops, power antenna, power side mirrors, a rear spoiler, dual exhaust outlets, 17-inch wheels and that power-retractable convertible top. The car also boasts the WS6 suspension package, plus traction control as an option.
Inside, you’ll find Firebird logos embedded in the Ebony leather headrests, as well as features such as remote keyless entry (not bad for 2002), a power-adjustable driver seat, Hurst shifter, leather-wrapped steering wheel, air conditioning, cruise control, a Monsoon sound system and an optional trunk-mounted 12-disc CD changer.
As for the engine, it’s a 5.7-liter V8, as previously stated. However, it’s fitted with an optional Ram Air intake and was rated at 325 hp and 350 lb-ft (474 Nm) of torque back when this Firebird rolled off the assembly line.
In 2002, this car retailed for $39,995, and that’s including the Ram Air Performance & Handling package, plus all other optional extras. If you adjust for inflation, you get the equivalent of roughly $62,000 by today’s standards, just $2,000 shy of what you’d pay for a brand new 2022 Camaro ZL1.
