Its compared with some of the most beloved and iconic models produced by Pontiacincluding theBlack & Gold 1977 Smokey & the Bandit Special Edition and the 1979 10th Anniversary Edition. In 1980, Pontiac built 50,896 Trans AMs but of those just 5,700 Pontiac Special Edition Turbo Trans Am Indy 500 Pace Cars. This is 1 of 5,700 built in 1980.During the last two years of its run, Pontiac offered a special engine and appearance package known as the "Turbo Trans Am". Due to the increasing emissions restrictions, Pontiac dropped all its large displacement engines, including the venerable 400 cid V8 following the 1979 model year. Along with a conventional 305 cid small-block V8, Pontiac offered the first forced induction production engine, a turbo charged 301 V8 in 1980-81. The 4.9L Turbo was unique in that it had a stronger block with thicker cylinder walls and a lower compression ratio given the increased pressure created by the turbo system. Also included were newly developed internals including forged pistons, high pressure oil pump, a roller fillet crankshaft with 2 counterbalances, fully baffled oil pan and turbo specific exhaust manifolds. The 301 Turbo was officially factory rated at 210hp and 345 lb.ft of torque and mated to a TH350 automatic transmission and 3.08 posi rear end.This beautiful limited-edition model shows its original White/Oyster exterior and interior finishes and is documented as actual miles on the title with under 12k original miles!
