It seems the Pontiac Trans Am steadfastly refuses to die. Ever since Chevrolet was granted a retrofied Camaro to compete with the Ford Mustang, Pontiac lovers have lamented the loss of this 1970s icon. And, looking at the Hurst Edition from Trans Am Depot, shown here at the 2012 SEMA Show, may explain what all the fuss is about.

It's not going to appeal to everyone's muscle-car tastes, but there's certainly room for a brash-and-bold black-and-gold Special Edition in many a Trans Am lover's garage. After all, if you want the keys to a custom pony car, you'll certainly get noticed in this one. If this scheme isn't your bag,, you can alternatively order your Hurst Edition in white and gold or silver and black. Oh, and don't forget a color-coordinated Screaming Chicken on the hood.

No matter which way you choose to go, your inner Burt Reynolds will appreciate the Eibach suspension kit, forged wheels with Pirelli PZero tires, functional shaker hood, fender air extractors, rear spoiler and, of course, a Hurst shifter inside. The interior is emblazoned with all manner of special touches, including a Hurst dash plate and T/A stitching on the Katzkin two-tone leather seats.

Optional bits include T-Tops, which you simply must include, a supercharger or twin-turbo package and just about anything else your black-and-gold heart desires. If you'd like to know more, check out the official website here and our high-res image gallery above.

      The back doesn't seem quite right, but this is pretty cool

      Oddly attractive to this man who really didn't care that much for it when it was real - and new - though i always liked the functionality of the air extractors. But, for this to really feel genuine, the T-tops have to leak...a lot!

        Pontiac should have been ashamed of dying a rebadged Chevy.

      Seriously is GM taking note of this?! People miss Pontiac! Bring back the Firebird/Trans Am, Grand Am/G6 and the Grand Prix/G8! Share platforms with the Camaro for the Firebird/Trans AM, ATS for the Grand AM/G6 and the CTS for the Grand Prix/G8. A GTI fighting Le Mans would be awesome as well!! Kill Buick, you have Cadillac as your luxury, bring back performance and fun into the USA with Pontiac!!!

      this little trend needs to stop. These front ends don't work on these newer landbarge - editions of musclecars, and just look awful.

      2010+ Camaros look like crap, but with the t-tops it looks less crappy.
