The Pontiac Firebird is one of America's finest classic cars, and a muscle car probably most famous for its starring role in Smokey and the Bandit. Aside from that, it’s a classic, loved not just in America but all around the world too. Modifying one might not be to everyone’s taste, but thanks to digital car renderer Rostislav Prokop, we can look at a modified example without ruining a real one. He has made this epic render of a rather incredible, widebody style Firebird that really stands out.
A Big Splitter For Plenty Of Downforce
The renderer looks to have added a widebody kit to the car, and modernized it as well. It looks almost like a restomod example of the Firebird. The huge splitter immediately draws our eyes to the front of the car. It molds into the bodywork, so it doesn’t look like a randomly disjointed add-on to the car. The hood has a different looking blower in the middle, but the Firebird that the car is famous for still adorns the hood. The headlights also quite pleasingly look the same as well.
A Much Wider And Intimidating Firebird
The front also sees a black grille with red framing, which allows the grille to really pop out. As we look across the rest of the Firebird, we get a sense of just how much wider the car is. The side shows massive fenders at the front and back, the front ones actually very neatly fusing with the rest of the bodywork. The ones at the back are very much bulkier than the ones at the front, and both sets of fenders encase bigger tires and wheels with start-like spokes. The actual side of the car with the doors remains unchanged.
Widebody Changes At The Rear Of The Firebird
The changes to the car do not stop at the side or front, too. At the back, we get a good sense of just how much wider the Firebird is. The rear quarter panels have a nice, extra bit of girth you could say, and it looks like Prokop has added a bit more substance to the rear lip spoiler. A rear window guard is now added, while the taillight arrangement looks pretty similar to what you would expect from the original Firebird, and it looks like this car is close to the 1970 model.
