Coin Toss: Sexiest or Ugliest Trans Am Ever?

Actually, it’s a Camaro Z28. But it looks like a Trans Am. A sexy Trans Am. And I know guys who would prefer this car to women.

The good ol’ boys at Lingenfelter have come up with the LTA Camaro, a package that converts a stock 2015 Camaro into the epitome of Pontiac’s muscle. This particular one has been built for an overseas customer, and uses the balls-out Camaro Z28 package with an LS7 7 liter-engine as its base.

Absolutely everything is modded out. The wheels are the least of it, and are 20-inch  5 spoke chromies. The front bumper fascia and grille are designed to completely revamp the face of the Camaro into the iconic Pontiac split-grille design. The shaker hood is decaled up with the obligatory Firebird decal in a very classy blue on white paint.

Under the hood, the engine received some massive upgrades. The bump up to 630 hp and 570 lb-ft of torque is achieved by replacing the valve springs, cams and intake for starters. The engine mods come with a balmy price tag of $10,246 alone!

They’ve also changed the back bumper, taillights, and added a spoiler. The Camaro is nearly unrecognizable as a Chevrolet and has all the cues to convince observers that Pontiac is back (they’re not). And the price? On top of the base price of the car (around $75,000) you can add on anywhere from $45,000 to $129,800 in upgrades of your choosing.

You tell us: is this car worth the same as an entry-level supercar?

About Calvin Escobar

The Car scene is so diverse Where I come from, most enthusiasts recognize the amazing engineering (particularly the engines). The bulk of the ridicule originates from the manner in which many of the vehicles are modded/maintained. Thus, the jokes and or hate tends to be aimed more at the owner rather than the machine. All of which makes seeing properly sorted old Toyota's and Hondas at car meets, auto shows, and track days all the more refreshing.
