The FireBreather, the unique Camaro-based concept developed for an upcoming film, is now available in a 50-unit “Signature Series” run.
The car was created by Classic Design Concepts and designed by Ajmal Ahmand, who also happens to be the writer and director of Jinn – a film featuring the vehicle. Jinn is a supernatural thriller shot exclusively in Michigan and scheduled to be released next year.
The FireBreather includes a fully redone body, with new front and rear fascias, hood, grille, and graphics. It was also given an Eibach Pro-Plus Performance Handling Package as well as new wheels and Pirelli tires.
“When we unveiled the FireBreather concept at the Detroit AutoRama earlier this year, enthusiasts clamored for a street version of the movie car,” said George Huisman, president of Classic Design Concepts. “[FireBreather is] the first movie car to be conceived and designed with the intent of bringing the experience home to the car enthusiast.”
Owners of signature FireBreathers (as opposed to regular Camaros converted to become FireBreathers) are granted special access to movie events and other collectibles, such as autographed memorabilia. The Camaro-based FireBreather starts at about $60,000, including a base Camaro (more info can be found on the FireBreather website).
The only question is, would you spend the extra cash on a FireBreather over a Camaro? The answer, at least to this humble writer, is a resounding “hell no.” I’ll take my Camaro the way Chevy meant it to be, thank you very much.[Source: Classic Design Concepts]
