American film star Burt Reynolds made an icon out of the Pontiac Firebird Trans Am in his 1977 movie Smokey and the Bandit. The legendary whip, dubbed the “Black Bandit,” was then recreated under Reynolds’ supervision, using a 1978 Trans Am model with a host of modern amenities.

Limited to just 77 units, the “Black Bandit” Trans Am re-creation features the famous black andgold paint with the “Screaming Chicken” logo on the hood, new air-conditioning components, a custom-built 200-4R automatic transmission and a rebuilt Pontiac 400ci engine with all-new Butler Performance parts. Perhaps most noteworthy of all is Reynolds’ hand-signed autograph on the glovebox.

Burt Reynolds’ “Black Bandit” Pontiac Firebird Trans Am is now up for auction at Barrett-Jackson’s website.

For more impressive cars, take a look at the very rare Versace Lamborghini Murcielago.
