Video: What's the "Firebreather" Camaro all about?
Designed for the upcoming independent film "Jinn," the Firebreather Camaro was unveiled on Friday at the Autorama custom car show in Detroit. We've now added an exclusive video interview with director AJ Amad and star Ray Park, hosted by Jack Baruth (with a little extra help).
The car is destined for a starring role in the supernatural thriller, which is being shot in Michigan over the next few months. Built in partnership with Classic Design Concepts, a limited run of 50 units will be made available to the public later this year. The Firebreather is powered by a 650 horsepower V8 motor and will sell for $60,000 when limited production begins.
The film's hero is Ray Park, best known for his roles as Darth Maul in "Star Wars Episode 1: The Phantom Menace" and Toad in "X-Men." More recently, Park also played Snake-Eyes in "G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra." Park is also expected to have a lead role in "Transformers 3," but details of his character remain unknown.
"Jinn" is being produced by Exodus Pictures and was written by Mr. Amad, who is also directing the film. Zaheer, a Hollywood veteran, says he returned to the Michigan film scene to help develop its growing motion picture industry
