2018 Trans Am Concept Revealed With 1000 Hp On New York Auto Show
The internet has been blown by the 840 hp with the 100 octane race fuel you can find in 2018 Dodge Challenger SRT demon, but it would not be the most powerful engine. 2018 Trans Am proves you about another high-powerful engine they can present as American muscle car. It was revealed at 2017 New York Auto Show. It has shown to the worldwide with its 1,000 hp to create. The company will only build about 50 examples of their 455 models.
The predecessor of 2018 Trans Am has been constructed based on the fifth-generation of Chevrolet Camaro as well as GM’s Zeta chassis. The new 455 Super Duty will be the first model that is established around the lighter Alpha chassis and the sixth-generation Camaro. Based on the show, we can quickly know that the new design has complete redesign with its masculine bodywork and sleek body lines. It has a unique touch with traditional retro styling as it is stated by Tod Warmack, the co-founder of Trans Am. If the car can make 1,000 hp, it means that the company has reached its historical accomplishment. The outer parts will be added with lots of carbon fiber body panels such as the scoop, the shaker hood, the front fascia while other elements have carbon such as the fender, the rear fascia and the decklid.
Inside the cabin, there will be Super Duty Shifter handle, custom leather seating with 455 embroidered headrests, restyled vintage climate vents, SD embroidered seat back, painted door panels, painted door sills, embroidered floor mats and custom gauge cluster for 2018 Trans Am.

This is taken from the current generation of V8 VLT1 from GM along with Magnuson TVS2300 supercharger that can provide about 14 psi of boost. It means that the engine is 0.5 psi lower than the new Challenger SRT Demon. The cold air intake makes the big contribution as with the ceramic coated headers. It is also designed with 3.0-inch of exhaust to give about 1,000 hp and 1,046 lb-ft of torque. In comparison, it has about 160hp and 276 lb-ft of torque higher than the demon on its race gas.
