According to the Firehawk Registry, this vehicle is one of approximately 1,132 Trans Am coupes invoiced by SLP in 2002. It is powered by an LS1 5.7-liter V8 mated to a BorgWarner T-56 six-speed manual transmission. Features include removable T-tops, 17-inch wheels, Monsoon audio system, and cat-back exhaust system.

The instrument panel consists of a 155-mph speedometer, 7,000-rpm tachometer, and gauges for the fuel level, coolant temperature, oil pressure, and voltage. The digital odometer reads 2,120 miles, which falls in line with the CARFAX report.

The SLP-modified LS1 5.7-liter small-block was rated at 345 horsepower and 345 lb-ft of torque. Power is directed to the rear wheels via a console-shifted BorgWarner T-56 six-speed manual transmission, with 768 Trans Am Firehawk coupes having this combination.

Stopping power comes from anti-lock disc brakes. The Bilstein-equipped suspension uses 35-millimeter front and 21-millimeter rear stabilizer bars. The cat-back exhaust system is an authentic SLP item.
