1993 Pontiac Firebird SLP Firehawk Test Drive
Shoppers seeking extra Firebird-style hustle without drawing too much attention to themselves would be advised to focus on the Firehawk. Except for the identifying door script, scooped hood, and, (IMO) aftermarket looking aluminum wheels, the subtly styled SLP Firehawk looked nearly identical to the base and Formula coupe. Underneath, however lurked an upgraded, re-tuned 300-horsepower 330 ft lb of torque version of the detuned Corvette LT1 already used in GM’s new high end F-bodies. Like John says in the vid, the price for the upgrade is less than the previous version , since less massaging was necessary to extract similar performance gains, versus the forgoing chicken.
