A lot of customization went into this fifth-generation Camaro.
When the Camaro returned after a rocky and uncertain hiatus for the 5th-generation, a lot of people were left wondering about the Pontiac Firebirds and Trans Ams. After all, the cars have run simultaneously together for decades, so bringing back only the Camaro for more generations, after the 2002 platform cut, felt a little empty for some. But how would a Pontiac muscle car ever return when the whole company was snuffed at this point. However, to meet the demand, aftermarket companies have since stepped up to fill the demand for a ‘new’ Trans Am, and this 2010 Camaro represents the aftermarket stepping in to fill the void.
This 2010 HPP Trans Am was built on a 2010 Camaro SS chassis, this is the first Trans Am built by Heide Performance Products. The platform was still very new to the world around the time this car was under the knife, and SEMA cars typically represent the extreme end of the aftermarket, and this car is extreme. After it was created, it was put on display at the 2012 SEMA show to showcase the level of craftsmanship and fabrication the shop was capable of. Once it left the SEMA floor in Las Vegas, it toured around the country for enthusiasts to see in person.
Three of these concepts were made, two coupes, and one convertible - they all have the first-generation inspired Trans Am nose and body kit. The hood has Ram Air scoops, it got the addition of brake vents, and it’s sporting the famous white and blue color from the first run of the T/A. The ad offers that, "All body panels on the car are modified except the roof,” for the Trans Am body kit.
