The Trans Am Worldwide 70 / SS brings it back to the 1970 Chevelle Super Sport

The Chevrolet Chevrolet Super Sport is back, sort of, but it’s not coming from General Motors.

On Saturday, Trans Am Worldwide introduced the Chevrolet 70 / SS with 1,500 horsepower, a manual transmission and enough nostalgia for its design to please anyone missing out on the 70’s.

Todd Warmack, co-founder of Trans Am Worldwide (the sister company of Trans Am Depot), says 70 / SS is seven years in the making. This is the same team that relaunched Bandit Trans Am with Bert Reynolds and created 455 Super Duty Trans Am.

Like any Chevrolet, the special edition starts with what is under the hood: A V-8. The Trans AM Worldwide 70 / SS will offer three trim levels, and the base car will be powered by GM’s LT-1 6.2-liter V-8 and 450 hp shipped on the rear wheels. The top-spec level car, of which only 25 will be built, will have Tran Am Worldwide’s LS6 / X 454 V-8 engine with 1,500-plus HP and rear-wheel drive. The mid-trim car will have a Magnuson supercharged 396 V-8 engine, though the output has not been released. Buyers can choose between an automatic or a manual transmission, but we are requesting buyers at # GiveAShift.

Based on the current camera, the modern-day interpretation of the Chevelle Super Sport will have to run circles around its name thanks to GM’s alpha platform.

The exterior design is a pure throwback with round quad LED headlights, horizontal triple-stack LED taillights, a dual exhaust, and two stripes of convertible length. The camera’s soft-top is retained and matches the overall design of the car.

The interior is somewhat identical to the Chevrolet Camaro with some redesigned trim bits, a hearth shifter, restored leather seats and a steering wheel apparently pulled from the C7 Corvette.

The 70 / SS will cost 150,000 and can be “moved north” from there depending on the customization and options.
