Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon is the new installment in the Transformers film franchise and is due on the big screen in NZ very soon. The movie will be a familiar formula with large scale action scenes, some eye candy and shameless product placement of General Motors’ vehicles.
Perhaps the most famous of these superstar movie vehicles is the yellow Chevrolet Camaro that goes by the name stage name Bumblebee. As in the previous movies this banana-and-black Autobot is fashioned in a form that will be repeated as a special edition Camaro available to fans.
The road-going version is called the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro, and keen American fans can order one from next month. The Transformers Camaro has special kit like Autobot badges on the guards, thick black stripes running along the roof and bonnet, a unique rear spoiler and blacked-out 20-inch alloys with Autobot-logo center caps. If that’s not enough to get everyone staring at you, American car dealers can also offer upgrades like a ground-effects lighting package and larger 21-inch alloys.
The interior also gets unique features like yellow stitching no the black leather and Autobot logos on the headrests and center console lid.
Getting a Transformers Camaro is easy but pricey, it involves ordering a 2LT or 2SS Camaro, dressing it up with the RS appearance package and then tagging on another $3,000 USD. It’s a pricey prospect considering it doesn’t actually change into a robot that can help you with the housework. But with a striking Camaro like this on your side, you might still get the girl.
