Pontiac Firebird Trans Am ’78

The official “Smokey and the Bandit” car is here! This car actually has a lot of areo parts including different spoilers to drastically change the looks of this car however I decided to leave it as stock as possible in looks. It looks pretty tough and I am really liking the gold trim, not to mention huge “Firebird” on the hood. The car is faster than I would have thought. I wanted to keep it stock with that “Smokey and the Bandit” feel, but this is also a game so I slapped on some racing soft tires and amped all the power up. It can get a little crazy since it has almost 1000ft-lbs of torque which is insane, but I tuned it in such a way that the back end doesn’t oversteer most of the time. It’s fun since you can drive it like a race car with watching how much gas out of the corners etc or slam the gas everywhere and give you that full on Burt Reynolds experience. Of course it’s not the 70’s anymore so the top speed on this car has increased to over 200mph.
