If you like these looks, the Outlaw Edition Trans Am has the same looks but with a supercharged 6.2-liter V8.
The Pontiac brand is dead and shows absolutely no signs of a revival. Trans Am Worldwide keeps the brand’s most famous muscle car alive, though, by continuing to produce highly customized Chevrolet Camaros with looks that harken back to the classic Trans Am. At the New York Auto Show, the firm is introducing the new 2017 Trans Am Super Duty that evokes one of the meanest machines of the early ‘70s, but this one turns things up even more with its supercharged 7.5-liter (455-cubic-inch) V8 making 1,000 horsepower (746 kilowatts) and 1,046 pound-feet (1,418 Newton-meters) of torque. A limited run of just 50 of these high-output machines are available.
The company’s latest Trans Ams follows the Camaro’s switch to General Motors’ Alpha platform. The new chassis provides a fantastic opportunity to overhaul the Trans Am’s styling, too. The Super Duty’s body features carbon fiber parts for the fenders, hood, front and rear fascia, and trunk lid.
“The new model is a complete re-design that features sleek body lines with masculine proportions and traditional retro styling,” Tod Warmack, company co-founder, said in the model’s announcement. “We are also offering optional glass t-tops this year.”
The big addition under the hood is the massively powerful V8 as part of the Super Duty Package. The engine uses GM’s LT1 V8 as a base, but pushes the normal displacement of 6.2-liters to a full 7.5-liters. A 2.3-liter Magnuson supercharger adds even more grunt.
The firm also offers the Outlaw Edition Trans Am that uses a similar looking body kit but doesn’t make the components out of carbon fiber. A 6.2-liter LT1 V8 with a 2.3-liter Magnuson supercharger should still provide plenty of grunt. A naturally aspirated version of the 7.5-liter V8 is an option.

April 14th at the New York Auto Show
Trans Am Worldwide of Tallahassee, Florida, the exclusive manufacturer of the
Trans Am brand through its distribution arm, Trans Am Depot, has completed their
first new model on the Alpha platform. After a very successful and sold-out Bandit
Edition, signed by the Bandit himself, Burt Reynolds, Trans Am Worldwide takes off
the bridle and unleashes the all-new 2017 Trans Am (Outlaw Series) and the
premier limited edition 1000hp Trans Am Super Duty.
This year’s model is led by in-house chief designer and engineer Tom Sawyer.
Sawyer, just like his namesake, brought a spirit of adventure and imagination to the
project while engineering all aspects of the Alpha platform Trans Am. For graphical
renderings, Tom collaborated with internationally acclaimed Automotive designer,
Bo Zolland of Sweden , an award-winning designer of cars and boats who has
worked with everyone from Detroit auto makers to Jay Leno.
“ The new model is a complete re-design that features sleek body lines with masculine
proportions and traditional retro styling. We are also offering optional glass t-tops
this year but perhaps the most notable of this historical accomplishment is that we
now join the ranks of only an exclusive few who offer a 1,000hp performance package
in a production vehicle” Tod Warmack, Co-Founder
For those with an affinity for power and speed, the 2017 premier model is the Trans
Am Super Duty boasting 1000hp and 1046’lb tq. In tribute to this iconic muscle
car legend, Trans Am Worldwide will limit this series to a strict edition of 50
supercars. The development of this performance collaboration is a three-way
partnership with Magnuson Superchargers, Ventura, CA Trans Am Worldwide and a
premier NASCAR engine builder from Charlotte, North Carolina.
