Lingenfelter LTA - Click above for high-res image gallery

Lingenfelter has a surprise tucked away for the visitors at this year's SEMA show. Sitting alone in a corner of the company's booth sits a near-production version of the LTA. Coated in orange and wearing one very awesome shaker hood, the car is a fitting tribute to Firebirds of old. Even those honeycomb wheels make us want to throw some Rush on the stereo and do smoky burnouts in the high school parking lot. That front splitter integrated into the fascia does look a bit cartoonish to our eyes, but hey, you certainly can't win them all.

Fortunately, the 455 cubic-inch engine should help you forget all about the funky nose with its 655 horsepower and 610 pound-feet of torque. Rapid acceleration will do that for you.
