The FireBreather is no ordinary Camaro. In fact, some might call it a Firebird.
All we know is for the right price, you can call this beast yours.
Designer Ajmal Zaheer Ahmad is also the writer and director of Jinn, a film featuring the car and scheduled to be released next year. Ahmad worked with Classic Design Concepts, a firm notable for a range of accessories crafted for the Ford Mustang, to create a limited-edition run of cars. According to CDC, 50 Signature Series cars are scheduled to be built.
“When we unveiled the FireBreather concept at the Detroit AutoRama earlier this year, enthusiasts clamored for a street version of the movie car,” said George Huisman, president of Classic Design Concepts. “[FireBreather is] the first movie car to be conceived and designed with the intent of bringing the experience home to the car enthusiast.”
Signature Series cars differ from ordinary Camaros converted to become FireBreathers in that the Signature models get special access to movie events and autographed memorabilia. A Camaro-based FireBreather starts at about $60,000 including a base Camaro.
The completely redone body includes new front and rear fascias, hood, grill and graphics. This isn’t just a visual package: an Eibach Pro-Plus Performance Handling Package plus new wheels and Pirelli tires are included, too.
Jinn, called a supernatural thriller, will be shot exclusively in Michigan. Given the FireBreather’s head-turning styling, we think it’s safe to say the car might be a success regardless of the film’s performance.

Would you spend money on a FireBreather over a basic Camaro? We’re still on the fence, but we do know of a few Firebird loyalists who are already foaming at the mouth…
