If you've been missing a nice heaping helping of Burt Reynolds lately, this video featuring a modern rework of his ride from Smokey and the Bandit, the Camaro Trans Am SE Bandit Edition, should last you for a bit. Based on a modern Chevrolet Camaro, this car picks up plenty of inspiration from the star of the film, including a T-top, a front-opening hood with a large shaker scoop, and Trans Am-like front and rear fascias. If that wasn't enough, there's even a large screaming chicken on the hood, Burt Reynold's signature on the dash, and Bandit decals throughout the interior. Under the hood, Sheriff Buford T. Justice would have trouble catching this 7.4-liter LSX V8, producing 840 HP with the help of a 2.9-liter supercharger. The Bandit Edition is limited to 77 units, each around $115,000.
