Without a doubt, one of the most attractive muscle cars ever made was the iconic 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. Despite being immortalized in movies of the period, the recent death of Pontiac sealed the fate of this automotive legend. Or did it? Black Knight Performance Engineering, Inc, is pleased to announce that, starting with a G5 Camaro 1SS, we are bringing it back and back with a vengeance.

We invite our clients to review these specifications and available options and then click on Pricing Information to obtain information on how to order your own Bandit.
