Celebrate Smokey and the Bandit"s 40th With These Sweet Renders | Cars New Mag

This weekend 40 years ago, arguably the largest car movie ever opened, opened in the theaters in the United States. We talk about Smokey and the bandit a movie as well as it made a star from a 200-horsepower 1977 Pontiac Trans Am. Yes, there is a Campy Flic with low forehead humor, but there is no denying the charm and chemistry that brought stars Burt Reynolds, Sally Field, Jerry Reed and Jackie Gleason to the action

In honor of the film, we reached our friends at CarSpring for a flashback fun. The Bandit’s black-gold color scheme is as iconic as the Trans Am that carried it, so CarSpring instructed some outstanding rendering from a couple of modern rides with right bandit flare. And for the fun of it, we also redesigned a few other cars from the film with modern double-boaters. Join us now for a surrealistic journey back to 1977.

Bandit’s Trans Am – Chevrolet Camaro

 Bandit Trans Am - Chevy Camaro

We could not drive this trip any differently. Pontiac is no longer with us, but more than a few modern Trans Amss have been built from his long-standing Camaro Stallmate, since Chevy revived the muscle car in the year 2010. And when we are honest, the new and improved version is just as awesome as the original.

Buford T. Justice Stripe Carriage – Dodge Charger

 Bandit Dodge Charger

The Pontiac Le Mans, used in the original film, was the epitome of all that was missing with cars in the 1970s. We did not mind seeing the car torn to pieces, but with a Charger rejuvenation we’d hate to see a single scratch sumbich

Snowman’s Rigg – Tesla Semi

 Schneemann Tesla Semi

In the trucking world, Kenworth’s W900 is still a legendary machine, even without the Hollywood boost the movie gave. There are all kinds of current trucks that could fill the role, but we think that Schneemann would absolutely love the torque and the power that electric vehicles can provide. Plus, Tesla’s truck looks damn good in brown and gold.

Bandit Alternate – Ferrari 812 Superfast

 Bandit Ferrari 812

Give it to me that you secretly have a black Ferrari with gold trim and a screaming chicken on the hood. It lacks the all-important T-Tops, but Burt Reynolds could easily run the Texarkana – Atlanta in under 28 hours with the 812’s 789-horsepower V12. For the record that four times the power you made from a stock 1977 Trans Am.

Bandit Alternate – Ford F-150 Raptor

 Bandit F-150 Raptor

In the course of the bandit return he rushes through mailboxes, dives through highway mediane, crosses a river and jumps a broken bridge. Anything that would be so much easier in a raptor that was actually designed to do some of these things. And it does not look badly dressed in Bandit trim.

Bandit Alternate – Honda Civic Type R

 Bandit Civic type R

The bandit drives … Honda? Absolutely and honestly, the already flamboyant type R looks at home in the bandit’s equally flamboyant color scheme. It is old-versus-new, and do not forget – this Civic holds the front-wheel drive on the Nürburgring. It is more than capable of being a blocker for a half-bearing bootlegged Coors beer to Georgia.

Bandit Alternate – Jeep Grand Cherokee Trackhawk

We will not even try to conceal our enthusiasm for this render. The Hellcat-powered Trackhawk with 707 hp wearing the Hood Decal and Gold Trim is just too much. We bet that this jeep would shoot baldness from the exhaust and leave red, white and blue tire marks on the road. Of all the deputies here, this is the one we want to come to the east and down.

Shelby Mustang GT500, Spotted In Prototype Form 2018

After teasing USA with a check mule of their approaching pony GT500 flagship last year, it's as if Ford has begun testing the automotive fully model type on public roads.

It's obvious Ford need USA to be told as very little as potential concerning the GT500 and have visited nice lengths so as to hide up its identity. They even clean most of the markings on the tire sidewalls.

However, we will still discern the '305/30/ZR20' marking on those front tires, that my purpose to the GT500 utilizing new Michelin Pilot Sports 4S rubber. Since the GT350 and GT350R wear 19" front tires, we will simply conclude that this model is some things additional aggressive.

Of course, the automaker is not only keeping the wheels and brakes hidden (which might be carbon ceramic), the complete body is well unseeable - to the purpose wherever the bulging hood is that the sole factor that actually stands out.

Looks aside, the question on everyone's mind continues to be what proportio…
