It shouldn't be a surprise that this 2000 Pontiac Trans Am WS6 is a
show winner and magazine cover car. The DuPont Chromalusion paint
is simply jaw-dropping and with just 41,668 original miles on what
has turned out to be the ultimate version of the Trans Am, it's a
supercharged performer that more than delivers on the promises made
by its outrageous bodywork.
The WS6 had it all: looks, handling, and horsepower, but there's nothing so good that it can't be made better. The swoopy Trans Am shape just begs for an upgrade, so this car received a staggeringly expensive repaint using DuPont Chromalusion paint, which uses prismatic glass particles to make it change color from blue to green to purple to gold, depending on how the light is hitting it. The effect is simply jaw-dropping in person and you'll probably find yourself walking around the car over and over to watch the way it seamlessly shifts colors right before your eyes. It's very cool. Underneath that paint there's unmarked sheetmetal and plastic and a custom body kit was added to make the outrageous WS6 look even longer and lower than it already is. The chin spoiler works rather well with the factory fascia, which includes round fog lamps and the nostrils up top for the ram air system. Custom graphics were added that are reminiscent of the vintage Firebirds of the '70s, a neat touch that recalls the car's history but drives into the future. Yes, it's outrageous, but it's not over-done.
The interior is mostly stock, but the Pontiac designers got it right on the first try. Supportive black leather buckets anchor the interior, and they're highlighted by custom embroidery on the headrests. There's a 6-point roll bar behind the seats to firm up the body structure and that's a difference you can really feel. The console, dashboard, and a few other trim bits were painted to match the bodywork, and that's actually a nice accent in the otherwise black interior. As Pontiac's top-of-the-line, it's also loaded with A/C, power windows, locks, seats, and mirrors, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and a comprehensive gauge package. A slick aluminum shifter manages the 6-speed manual transmission and a pair of auxiliary gauges were added on the A-pillar. There's an extensive stereo system that uses a Pioneer head unit and an amazing custom setup in the hatch area to deliver a wall of sound that's extremely impressive.
This Trans Am isn't merely pretty. No, there's a custom Vortech supercharger on top of the factory LS1, transforming this into a serious threat on the street. Tuned by Morgan Motorsports and fitted with a Vortech Power Cooler intercooler, it's a tidy package that adds more than 100 horsepower to the already potent LS1 V8. A few color-matched details make the engine bay totally show-quality, and there's nowhere on this car where the expert craftsmanship isn't wholly evident. It's just beautifully built. The factory 6-speed manual transmission doesn't balk at the added horsepower running through it, although the suspension has been beefed up with upgraded suspension components including fatter sway bars and a custom rear suspension. The exhaust sounds magnificent blowing through a pair of polished tips out back, and the disc brakes have been upgraded with cross-drilled rotors. Gorgeous (and expensive) Racing Hart M5 3-piece alloy wheels are fitted all around, carrying staggered 265/35/18 front and 295/35/18 rear BFGoodrich performance rubber.
Documented with a dealer invoice, receipts, and records, plus the magazine in which it was featured, this is an amazing build in every way. At this price, it's also an amazing bargain. Call now!
