They are suppose to "build" 20 or so of them. Maybe more depending on how the sales go I'd guess. Also suppose to be between 600 and 800 HP depending on which model you pick. BAN1, BAN2, or BAN3.
And priced between $100k and $200k but IMO they are going to end up auctioning them off instead. So those figures will go out the window.
And supposedly they already have all the cars they are restoring. And had a few extras just in case.
I've also heard they are all supposed to be genuine 1977 T/As but I doubt they many were all original black with gold chickens on the hood. And gold interior. The one I've seen under construction was red.
BAN3 is going to be one badarse machine. (I hope they build it on some sort of chassis being unibody and all), I wouldn't want to see what 800HP could do to it without major reinforcements.

She's American made, you know what I mean?
Red on black, she's a street machine.
Set's ten inches off the ground with a custom plate
That says I-E-A-T Z28
Trans Am
Trans Am
Trans Am
Highway Wonderland.
Yeah, '79 will be the end of the road.
If you want horse power overload.
Ooh, if you like kicks, just take her to the floor
And you red-line shift them gears feel the engine roar on my
Trans Am
Come on catch me if you can
In my Trans Am, Highway Wonderland.
Trans Am
Trans Am
Trans Am
Highway Wonderland.
And she shines on the street.
And she shines at the heat.
And she shines in my baby's eyes.
And she shines on every other guy's
Trans Am
Trans Am
Trans Am
Highway Wonderland.
-solo-
T-R-A-N-S A-M
Trans Am!
-2nd solo-
From Daytona Beach down to Riverside
If there's a race, she's qualified.
My six point six gets a little too heavy
For a "Big Balls" Ford or a 350 Chevy
Trans Am
Come on, catch me if you can in my
Trans Am, Highway Wonderland
Trans Am
Trans Am
Me and my Trans Am
Come on, catch me if you can in my
Trans Am, ooh, Highway Wonderland.
Yeah!
Highway Wonderland!!! Yeah!
