This is an ultra-low mileage 1989 Pontiac Firebird Turbo Trans Am 20th Anniversary special edition. While all the cars in this extremely short run were considered Indy 500 Pace Car replicas, it was stated by owner this one has been around the race track! That's why it's such a well-preserved and award-winning time capsule.
This Turbo Trans Am was given to a GM employee, and he knew exactly how rare and unique this car is. That's why it's a cherished machine but also enjoyed it, with less than 24,000 miles on the odometer. There were only 1,555 examples of this special edition...That's all! There were no other turbocharged Trans Am's of this generation. The 20th anniversary cars were not only special for their motor, but also for the fact they were based on the already rare GTAs. That means a more aggressive look with a full body kit, vented hood, and rear spoiler. And these TTAs were the only ones that got the official Indy 500 decals. The white paint has a porcelain like glow and has been ceramic coated. Since the panels were treated like precious metal, it just makes the expensive gold cross lace wheels look even more impressive.
The interior is just as original and nicely preserved as the exterior. It starts with the GTA-exclusive Ultima bucket seats with power adjustable bolstering for the best in comfort. The sports steering wheel is different than most other cars you see, because this was the year Pontiac started to embrace their technical side with the premium cars. So, you have full stereo controls right in the middle of the steering wheel. Beyond that is a full set of clear analogue gauges. Because this was the top-of-the-line car for Pontiac, it comes loaded with features like power windows, power locks, power steering, remote trunk opener, cruise control, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, and four-speed automatic transmission w/overdrive. The T-tops store in their proper factory bags, and when you take them out, the factory air conditioning will keep you comfortable.
This TTA has the Buick-based 3.8-liter turbo motor that was eating the streets in cars like the Buick Grand National and GNX. This setup is stock, right down to the decals, and so it's easy to believe the claim that this is still the full original package. GM was worried that Buick had a Corvette-killer on its hands with the GNX, but Pontic really turned it up a notch. They had their own variation on this hardy turbo setup. So, while they claimed this was making 245 horsepower (the same as the C4 Corvette) the number was really closer to 300. That kind of power made it the one to beat out on the street. Of course, it was the other examples that helped give the Turbo Trans Am its reputation. If you do decide to enjoy this car to its fullest, the GTA setup means a terrific all-around package with four-wheel disc brakes, limited-slip rear end, and the desirable WS6 sports suspension.
The sale comes with all the best documentation and paperwork, owner's manual packet, promotional material, and magazine articles. This is one of the rarest and most desirable cars of its era. So, if you're a true collector, you know this is the one you can't let slip away. Call today!!!
