More than sixty grand is a lot of money for a used car, even more so for an aftermarket build that pays tribute to a dead brand and vehicle range – in this instance, the fire-breathing Pontiac Trans Am Bandit, based on a 2012 Camaro Convertible 2SS V8, which you can jump into brand new for $43,250.
In fact, if you have $61,550 lying around, you can own the new 580hp supercharged 2014 Camaro ZL1 Convertible.
To be completely fair, though, whereas Camaros are a dime a dozen on the roads here in the States these days, the Pontiac Trans Am Bandit is a rare piece.
The car is listed for sale on eBay with a ‘Buy it Now’ price of $65,000, where the seller states:
“2012 Trans Am conversion. Started as a 2012 2SS Camaro Convertible. Professionally converted to a Trans Am. Black with black leather interior. at. 2700 miles. Has the console guages. Heads up display. Heated seats. Shaker hood scoop. 426 hp. 20″ wheels. Remainder of factory warranty.”
