Firebreather Camaro Is The Closest Thing We’ve Got To A New Pontiac Trans Am

2011 Firebreather Camaro

I'd recognize that face anywhere.

We’ve given the Classic Design Concepts Firebreather a fair amount of exposure recently, including coverage of its participation in Bullrun and a showdown with the Shelby GT500 in the canyons of California. There’s a simple reason for that: we love the lines of the Firebreather, and like anything with 600 horsepower underneath the hood. The styling, in my opinion at least, is better than the new Camaro and exactly what GM should have built if they hadn’t killed Pontiac. Don’t think that the Firebreather is just some stick-on body kit, either; the only stock Camaro body panels retained by Classic Design Concepts are the roof and the doors.

It's like the Camaro's evil step-brother.

Classic Design Concepts gets two thumbs up for styling.

The Firebreather looks good from any perspective.

Originally designed for the upcoming movie “Jinn”, Classic Design Concepts realized that there would be sufficient demand for the Firebreather to put it into limited production. The original plan was to build 50 copies; if that’s still the case, the asking price of $60,000 is downright reasonable. Sure, that’s about $10,000 more than Ford’s Shelby GT500, but the Shelby has a live axle and a 50 horsepower deficit. Plus, Ford is building 5,500 Shelby GT500s while production of the Firebreather is one percent of that. If you want a muscle car that you won’t see at every car show, the Firebreather’s low production numbers virtually guarantee you’ll be th only guy on your block with one in his garage.
