Chinese Camaro fan gives life to the first ever Bumblebee Cruze!

As featured on homepage.

I got a real kick out of this one. No you're not seeing a photoshopped stretched Bumblebee Camaro. What you're witnessing here is the work of a BIG camaro fan in China who decided that he couldn't afford the $200,000 price tag of a Camaro in China. What does one do in that situation? Take your current GM produced car (a Cruze in this case) and paint it up not to resemble any old Camaro, but the Bumblebee Camaro! :D Thumbs up to his engenuity and efforts :thumbup:

That's great.

But GM needs to hurry the **** up and get this car stateside...

Are you serious... It isn't that bad. Its actually pretty cool to see the Chinese like something American!

Agreed! Good to see GM's marketing reaching all parts of the world. :w00t:

Very nice. I was up in the air still about the Cruze, but those pictures may have assured me it can be a sweet looking ride.

pinkcamaro10 06-04-2009 11:30 AM

awwwh it's cute!

ClaymoreZ28 06-04-2009 11:32 AM

Very cool and really nicely done - thanks for sharing this

I recently had chance to visit Shanghai and was blown away by how many American Brands I saw there.
American cars are viewed as very desirable and high quality

Scarily enough they love KFC and they are now seeing Starbucks popping up all of the place

looks like a dodge front end.

nUcLeArEnVoY 06-04-2009 11:51 AM

WTF, why is the Camaro that expensive over there? Get this kid a Camaro! That Cruze is pretty sweet, though. Next best thing, I suppose when the Camaro is that pricey over there.

moto-camaro 06-04-2009 11:59 AM

woah! cool!

just curious, any idea why the front and rear bumpers had to be removed?

Nova65 06-04-2009 11:59 AM

If Camaro's are worth $200k in China, I would gladly sell my car !

Suskam 06-04-2009 12:02 PM

That is rediculous.

my guess is because of the shipping fees and costs, and there's probably a bunch of taxes and fines in order to bring in a foreign car. the horsepower and engine type may also cause some taxes and fines. but, these are just my guesses...:iono:

ssrsheaven 06-04-2009 12:08 PM

Looks like imitations are everywhere, other than that not bad.

DDustiNN 06-04-2009 12:12 PM

:facepalm:

Morepwr 06-04-2009 12:16 PM

Not bad at all. And he probably didnt even have to pre-order!

diddiyo 06-04-2009 12:17 PM

i think we should be happy that somebody out there is this enthusiastic about a GM car :thumbsup:

RyanG 06-04-2009 12:24 PM

Next year I want to get my wife a Cruze just as a daily commuter, if it looked like this, I buy one faster.

I'd have a Camaro and a Camaro Jr. :happyanim:

I'm guessing that's not in US currency, $200,000 in chinese currency is $29,265.01 in US

LAWMAN 06-04-2009 01:09 PM

LOOKS KINDA NEAT,...YOU WOULD HAVE TO THINK THE $200,000 IS NOT AMERICAN DOLLORS THOUGH,.......?

Has to do with Exchange rate 1 us dollar = 6.83318 Chinese Yuan Renminbi.

So with that said They would cost as follows....

Camaro LS $23,040 USD = $157,436 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
Camaro 1LT $24,675 USD = $168,609 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
Camaro 2LT $27,375 USD = $187,058 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
Camaro 1SS $31,040 USD = $212,102 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
Camaro 2SS $34,225 USD = $233,866 Chinese Yuan Renminbi
Plus import tariffs I'm sure.
