This is a once in a life time opportunity to own a very rare car. I was in search fir a daily driver in 2014 and had the good fortune of getting this Firehawk instead. I used it daily for about 8 months before changing jobs where I got a company car. Because it was used daily, it need to be reliable and as such I had a lot of work done on the car to ensure it was like new. Take a look at the details, look further down to see all the work that has been done. you will not be disappointed.
The reason for sale, simple. I cant drive both this and my 69 Pontiac GTO... and I want to enjoy the GTO, having the firehawk as a daily driver meant I got to enjoy driving that, but with the company car I don't have the time to drive both...
2001 Pontiac Firehawk by SLP— This fine example is sequentially numbered: 456, is fully documented on the Firehawk register and is 1 of 2 confirmed in the UK.
There was originally 540 built this year, of which only 164 were Black 6 Speed Manuals with T-Tops. Out of the 540 only 327 at present are confirmed as still being alive, this makes it a very rare Pontiac model. Potentially that makes this 1 of only 102 in the world still alive and kicking.

This vehicle was sourced and imported in Sep 2014, only 2 owners including myself. It has custom built round Projector Headlights, DRL delete and Switch back LED’s for the indicators to comply with the UK MOT.
It was imported with a non original single din American radio which has now been replaced with a custom Android 8” Touch Screen computer with SatNav, radio, MP3, DV system, BT hands-free, full steering wheel control and a OBD II to Bluetooth diagnostic and live info app.
Being so rare it has had a top of the range Viper Alarm system installed with remote start, 1mile range and integrated GPS tracker all with its own hidden battery backup. The remote start features a custom sensor to prevent starting when in gear.
There is also an SLP line-lock just for good measure!
It has been to an LS1 specialist in the UK to have some extensive remapping completed to gain the most out of the engine for our higher octane fuel, and to correctly adjust the programming for the long tube headers SLP factory installed —but do not remap.
Has recently had an all round liquid flush and change. NEW clutch, flywheel & pressure plate, New slave cylinder & remote bleeder. Recently had new tyres. New brake pads all round. New recon steering rack. New intermediate shaft. New upper & lower front A-Arms. New bushings all round. New Trans-mount. New Engine Mounts. New serpentine belt. New idle pullys. PCV Oil catch can.
I highly recommend you come and see this vehicle, first to view will buy. I have advertised the vehicle else where and reserve the right to remove it from eBay.
You will need to come with ID, and a certificate of fully comp insurance to the value of £20000 if you want to test drive, else you'll have to be a passenger. Sorry
I have put this on eBay as well... Pontiac SLP Firehawk - Trans AM - Firebird | eBay
You can contact me here or via eBay. I have had way to many idiots ask stupid questions like "what are the tyres like" and "whats it like to insure".... so, no mobile number or email address until I think your worthy lol... This isn't a boy racer mobile, its a collectors vehicle and needs to be respected as such - I'm sure you understand.
