An AWD 1971 Pontiac Trans Am Does Exist, and It’s Glorious – MotorBiscuit

If you were to say Pontiac built a Trans Am with an all-wheel drive layout in the early 1970s, you might have needed your head examined. Enthusiasts snub their noses at the very idea. However, all that changed when a madman outfitted a 1971 Pontiac Trans Am with not only all-wheel drive but a supercharged V8. Hot rodding exists in many flavors, and in the midst of all the electrification happening around us recently, it’s nice to see someone stand up for the V8 and create a hot rod that Dr. Frankenstein would be proud of. 

This 1971 Pontiac Trans Am is the second of two

The man responsible for this all-wheel drive 197 Pontiac Trans Am is none other than Gregg Hamilton, Ken Block’s lead mechanic since 2005. One of this Trans Ams is from the late ‘70s and is the spitting image of the Bandit. It uses a twin-turbocharged 5.3-liter LS V 8, with Subaru 525cc injectors and many proprietary parts.
