Camaro-based Pontiac-styled Firebreather available for order

While American tuners Classic Design Concepts (CDC) isn’t trying to bring Pontiac back to life, the inspiration for its latest vehicle is clear. Because the first thought that springs into our minds when seeing the FireBreather is that it’s a modern iteration of General Motor’s Firebird Trans-Am pony car.

Based on the 2011 Camaro this distinctive vehicle was originally created as a one-off movie car for Exxodus Pictures’ new sci-fi flick, Jinn, but the company decided to build a limited series for sale in the States. So for now, the order book is open with the maker planning to complete a run of 50 exact replicas of the FireBreather, priced at $60,000 USD a piece.

The Firebreather’s body has been completely redone with a new front fascia, headlights, bonnet, rear bumper, tailights and 20-inch wheels. In the cabin, it’s full leather with piano black trim mixed in and red ambient lighting.

The FireBreather also gets supercharged version of the Camaro’s 6.2-litre V8 with 599-horsepower plus numerous other goodies such as a cold-air induction system and a 3-inch cat-back dual exhaust.
