It boasts new front and rear ends inspired by the second-generation Firebird, has special logos all around, the typical decal on the hood, and new wheels wrapped in sticky tires from Michelin. The cabin is just as nice as the exterior. It mixes black and gray leather stitched together with blue string, has a new emblem on the steering wheel, and bespoke floor mats.
Elsewhere, it is pretty much the same Camaro that we all know. Well, make that pretty much and then some, as this 2019 Trans Am Worldwide Super Duty 455 packs a 455 cu-in engine. The 7.4-liter supercharged V8 produces a massive 1,000+ horsepower and over 1,046 pound-feet (1,418 Nm) of torque. A six-speed manual transmission delivers the thrust to the rear wheels.
The output is almost on par with the bad Dodge Challenger SRT Demon 170, whose 6.2-liter supercharged V8 develops as much as 1,025 hp. The torque, on the other hand, is superior, as the Demon 170 has 'only' 945 lb-ft (1,281 Nm) to play with, enabling the 0-60 mph (0-97 kph) in under two seconds, according to the Stellantis-owned brand.
Now, back to the four-year-old Trans Am, car #12 of 50, which still has 1,605 miles (2,583 km) under its belt, according to the listing. Garage Kept Motors is responsible for selling it, and you can access the ad here. But before doing that, we have to remind you that the initial asking price was $234,900 a few months back, whereas today, they're willing to let it go for $199,900.
Mind you, that's not exactly a bargain, as one could buy a barely-driven supercar for similar money. As for the Demon 170, it was available from just under $100,000, excluding dealer markups. Nevertheless, the rarity of this model, neck-snapping performance, and the fact that it uses a moniker that’s bound to make classic muscle car enthusiasts sigh upon hearing its name make it a true collectible. Let's hope it doesn't end up in a climate-controlled garage. Speaking of which, do you think it is a fair asking price, given the rarity of this vehicle?
