Firebreather Car "Jinn" Classic Design Concepts
Firebreather car from the movie Jinn. On film location 05/05/10. This is not a reproduction model that the public has access to. The car has now been repainted and has a "Jinn" badge on the hood. You will see this one on the Big Screen. It is not my ownership and I did not have access to drive it.
Dubbed the Firebreather, the car is based on the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro and features a unique front fascia, new headlights (with LED halos), a revised hood, side sill extensions, and a modified rear bumper with an integrated diffuser. Other styling tweaks include new taillights, a rear spoiler, and 20-inch wheels outfitted with Pirelli P-Zero tires.
Inside, the cabin boasts leather upholstery, piano black trim, red ambient lighting, special floor mats, and an individually numbered plaque.
Power is provided by a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine with a cold-air induction system and a 3-inch cat-back dual Exhaust. It produces 599 hp (447 kW / 607 PS) instead of the standard 426 hp (318 kW / 432 PS).
Firebreather production will be limited to 50 units and pricing starts at $60,000.
