Pontiac may be gone, but their classic Firebird is not forgotten.
Circassian designer-as-a-hobby Kasim Tlibekov has breathed some new life into the Pontiac Firebird. Dubbed the Firebird TT Black Edition Concept, his design attempts to give a new look to one of the now-defunct brand's signature models and with some aggressive looks and styling, looks better than ever. Tlibekov's concept uses the 1969 Firebird as its base and stays true to the ideal of American muscle in its power source and styling. In terms of hypothetical power, he says a GM-sourced V8 could work.
Imagine the 2013 Ford Mustang Shelby GT500's supercharged 5.8-liter V8 in there, with all of its 650hp and 200mph top speed. The Pontiac Firebird TT Black Edition Concept features a very wide body, aggressive front splitter and front-end, side air exhausts which blend into the side skirts and a duck tail spoiler with massive rear diffuser. It's good to see American muscle is revered in the Northwestern region of the Caucasus Mountains.
