A triple-black 2000 Pontiac Firebird convertible is always appealing, but when it's an ultra-low production numbers version of the special SLP Firehawk package, then it's absolutely irresistible. After all, who knew you could get 330 horsepower and a six-speed at such a value price?
There weren't many more aggressive-looking cars in the early 2000s than the Pontiac Firebird, but the specialists at SLP Engineering really turned it up a notch with the Firehawk. The aggressive hood with heat extractors, new spoiler, performance exhaust tips, Firehawk graphics (w/subtle matching brake calipers), and the chrome 17-inch alloys really give this car presence. And just in case you were wondering about that number on the front bumper, it's because this is car #408 of the limited production run in 2000. In fact, it's quite a bit more rare considering it is only one of 78 convertibles (1 of 8 in triple black!) Even if this wasn't a low-production gem, you'd still desire it simply because the sleek styling has the perfect high gloss black finish that make this sinister bird look like it's ready to go hunting at midnight.
The dark attitude continues inside with the full Ebony interior (black paint, black folding top, and black leather interior is the trio for the ultra-desirable triple black.) Averaging less than 3,000 miles a year means little time to wear out the bucket seats, so they still look fantastic today. These SLP cars only came one way – loaded. It includes features such as power seats, power locks, keyless entry, cruise control, and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo (the original unit also comes with the sale.) Plus, the power windows and power folding roof means you never have to leave the driver's seat to go from buttoned up comfort to an open air experience. And since the air conditioning is blowing ice-cold, you can do this whenever you want and remain staying cool. Beyond just luxury features, a modern classic also means modern safety, too. So you get items like dual airbags, anti-lock brakes, and traction control (yes, you can turn that last one off when it's time to have fun.)
Under the hood is the LS1 fuel-injected V8 that this special edition has always had from day one. In fact, the entire engine bay looks like a fresh time capsule. You might have spotted the additions that SLP has done under the hood. Getting colder air into the engine bay and improving the exhaust meant an increase in power to 330 hp total. The lightweight aluminum powerhouse eclipses just about every other muscle car powerplant from this era, and it'll return surprisingly good fuel economy when driven with a conservative right foot. It only gets better when mated to a six-speed manual transmission for the ultimate control to instantly turn mild into wild. And the optional Auburn high torque differential really makes sure that you get the most out of this enhanced Pontiac. Add in four-wheel disc brakes and ZR rated tires, and we won't blame you for wanting to go out and have fun in this highly collectable droptop.
The complete package includes plenty of paperwork (SLP window sticker, dealer invoice, owner's manuals, etc.) as well as goodies like a car cover. So you know this collectable has been treated with proper respect from day one. That's why you know it will never last long at such an affordable price. This one is even autographed by legendary NASCAR driver, Rusty Wallace. Call now!!
