That is incorrect. This is another TransAm clone car using the Camaro as a base.

Firebreather was a different car along this same series, but not all clones are Firebreathers.

Looks like a TransAmDepot car or close to it. They make other oldschool conversions as well.

Not a fan, but it is one of the better looking conversions. The biggest flaw though is that they did not remove the gills. Doh!

Well, real 2012 Trans Ams are a little difficult to come by.

74k and no t-tops? pass

Looks nice tough but i'm not a big fan of the batman front grill. I prefer the look of my 2000 WS6 grill.

I don't think it's a TransAmDepot job. Their cars are more detailed than this. To me it's a half-ass attempt. Gills not removed, not lowered, probably no motor work or any other performance mods.

Here's a TransAmDepot car:

Actually, with the body style this needs an older model Trans Am front end, like '69 styling.

Yeah, I'm not thinking TAD now... Too much wrong.

Over on DVA's site:

This Trans AM concept vehicle was created using a 5th generation F-Body (2012 Camaro). This recreation of the 1978 "Smokey and the Bandit" theme with an estimated 440 horsepower includes custom body modifications, graphics, wheels and performance upgrades. This Limited Edition vehicle (Coupe or Convertible) is ready for production in select colors
