David Freiburger’s 1973 Chevrolet “F-Bomb” Camaro has come to be one of the most recognized second-gen F-bodies on the internet, which is no accident; its unique appearance – with its matte army green finish, thick black stripe, and “F-Bomb” decal – is highly distinctive, and has propelled the car to become something of an icon. Chances are pretty good you’ve seen the F-Bomb Camaro, as the car has been featured in many Hot Rod videos, and cemented its celebrity status by appearing in the fourth Fast & Furious film as a getaway vehicle.
In this video, we get a thorough walk-around of the uniquely cool F-Bomb, and Freiburger actually delves into some details regarding how the stunts from the movie were orchestrated.
The goal behind building the F-Bomb was to make a street-legal car that was capable of running 8s in the quarter-mile. It may have taken a twin-turbocharged V8 with 1,540-horsepower and 1,527 pound-feet of torque to meet that objective, but it’s hard to find fault with the results.
