The New 2024 Chevrolet Chevelle SS is a muscle car which was remodeled to look like and pay tribute to the old one, the 1970 Chevrolet Chevelle Super Sport. Trans Am Worldwide, which is an automobile manufacturing company in the U.S., recently released the first photos of their latest car which they now call the reimagined pony car of the 70/SS.
According to Tod Warmack, TAW owner, the car has been “seven years in the making”. It begins its life as a Camaro convertible, which makes for an easier platform to update the body, and even more significantly differs from the Camaro’s than the company, Trans Am do.
The car is also characterized by refurbished fenders and a new front end with squared headlights, doubled rectangular grillework and a reconceptualized version of the Chevelle’s sculptured front bumper.
With an elongated rear and a new trunk lid which has been equipped with square tail lights, it also has a removable hardtop for those who would prefer the coupe styling. Although most of the interior is more of the older Camaro, it still features antique 1970’s upholstery design and a trellis shifter lever.
Its price starts at $150,000 as its range topper which is the LS6/X 454 with two turbochargers making a streetable rear wheel of 1,500 brake-horse-power which breathes through a pop-up cowl induction system. Notwithstanding, for those who would want something less extremes but still insane, it is also available with a 6.4-liter (396 cubic-inch) V8 with 900 brake-horse-power (671 kW) and a standard 450 bhp (336-kW) with a 6.2-litre LT-1 V8 at an entry level.
They all have the option of an automatic or manual gearbox transmissions, as well as upgraded suspension, wheels, and brakes. And of course, they are all rear-wheel-drive. Buyers also have the liberty of choosing from eight heritage colors or ten modern shades for the exterior, although if there’s a specific color you want, it can also be customized to your taste.
However, only 25 versions of these muscle car models will be built, thus, if you like it and you are interested in buying it, you will have to be quick in placing your purchase and/or customization orders.
Trans Am, amid owning the rights to the Trans Am name, will not be using Chevelle for its new car. Though there is a possibility that Chevrolet might, it will have to renew its trademark next year if it wants to keep it.
Rumors however have it that Chevrolet may even be discontinuing the Camaro in furtherance of a new electric car model which will go by a new name. But those plans have not yet been confirmed, not to mention what it may even be called.
