Lingenfelter 455 TA, a Pontiac Trans Am concept based on 2010 Camaro, set to appear at SEMA |

Well here’s a certain blast from the past, it seems that tuning and customization company Lingenfelter has decided to revive the glorious Pontiac Trans Am, basing itself on the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro model.

Dubbed the 455 TA, it takes many of its styling cues from the 1971 Trans Am (not the famous Firebird one), and is powered by a massive 455 cubic inch (hence the name) engine, or for non-American readers, a 7.5-liter V8 with 655 HP and a torque of 610 lb-ft (826 Nm).

Although we only have a few sketches of the model, it is looking pretty good, giving the new Camaro a redesigned front fascia and rear end, a set of 20-inch honeycomb-style wheels with the obligatory wider tires, a hood scoop, air vents and, last but not least, a duck-tail spoiler.

According to the company, its interior will also be up to par, and remind many users of the original Trans Am models.

Overall, this is certainly a concept which many people will be glad to see at next weeks’ SEMA show in Las Vegas.
