200 MPH BANKS TURBO PONTIAC TRANS AM

A street-legal Pontiac Trans Am with 700-hp and a Banks turbo breaks the 200 mph barrier and becomes a cover story for Car & Driver magazine. The first 200-mph street-worthy machine is Banks twin-turbo GT Trans Am, as tested and proven by Car and Driver magazine. Banks’ American Turbocar Corp. started the Turbo Tuner craze. 700 bhp, 1 G lateral and 204 mph running the A/C…these things rocked the world. Car & Driver’s Csaba Csere proved the point on Mrs. Orcutt’s driveway.

“Speak Power. Well, Gale Banks and his engines do just that.” — Car and Driver
