Pontiac celebrates 35 years of Firebird Driving Excitement with the 2002 Firebird Trans Am “Collector Edition”. Elements unique to the Collector Edition include a special paint scheme, detailed interior appointments, special edition emblems and the raw power of Trans Am’s WS6 performance and handling package.
COUPE OR CONVERTIBLE, THE COLLECTOR EDITION EXTERIOR GRAPHICS PACKAGE SCREAMS PERFORMANCE
Outfitted in its exclusive Pontiac “Collector Yellow” paint scheme, the Collector Edition features a special “screaming chicken” graphic package that puts a contemporary spin on the eye-catching hood designs of the ’70s and ’80s Firebird and Trans Am models. Two black “racing stripe” designs adorn the hood of the vehicle and continue on to wrap themselves around the car’s doors and rear quarter panels. The rear fascia also gets special attention with a two-tone Collector Yellow and black treatment while both Collector Edition and Trans Am nameplates accent the lower doors.
Staying true to the tradition of the WS6 performance and handling package’s exterior appointments, the Collector Edition includes black painted WS6 wheels with a machined face surface, black anodized front and rear brake calipers and black painted axles. Goodyear Eagle F1 performance tires are standard.
INTERIOR DETAILS CELEBRATE LEGENDARY LINEUP
Inside the 2002 Collector Edition, owners will find exclusive interior trim appointments that highlight the now famous design cues of Firebird and Trans Am through the years. Seats are wrapped in ebony leather with headrests featuring embroidered Collector Edition logos. Also sporting the Collector Edition logo are front floor mats and a trophy/shelf mat. A special issue Collector Edition owner’s portfolio provides the finishing touch to the vehicle’s interior.
Ram Air WS6 Performance and Handling Package – Need We Say More? The Ram Air WS6 performance and handling package is standard on the Collector Edition. Highlighting the features is the LS1 5.7L V8 churning out 325 horsepower at 350 lb-ft. of torque (with WS6 package refinements).
