The 1977 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am Special Edition is a muscle car manufactured between 1977 and 1978 by Pontiac. It was priced higher than the simultaneously built Formula model and underwent several revisions in 1979.
The Special Edition model gained popularity for its appearance in the 1979 action comedy film Smokey and the Bandit.
Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012)
The 1977 Firebird Trans Am appears in the Movie Legends Pack DLC for the PC, PS3 and Xbox 360 releases of Need for Speed: Most Wanted (2012). As one may expect from a car that only has 180 horsepower, it is not very fast, although it is faster than the Aston Martin DB5. It is no match for the other Muscle cars as far as raw performance goes, and Modifications will be necessary to compete.
