DETROIT - Fans of the new Camaro and the blockbuster TRANSFORMERS movies can now combine their love of the car and the films with the Chevrolet Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition announced today at Comic-Con in San Diego.

"When the first TRANSFORMERS movie was setting box office records, we had countless customers asking to purchase the 'BUMBLEBEE' Camaro," said Karen Rafferty, product marketing director, Chevrolet. "Now, they can buy one with the new Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition. Streets all over North America will be buzzing in no time."

Features such as an EPA-rated 29 highway mpg on the V6-powered Camaro, Bluetooth phone connectivity, USB connectivity, XM Satellite Radio and OnStar combined with TRANSFORMERS design cues add to the car’s status as a 21st century sports car.

“Hasbro is thrilled to team up with Chevrolet and excited to see the Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition come to market for our fans to enjoy,” said Samantha Lomow, Global Brand Leader for TRANSFORMERS at Hasbro. “The yellow Camaro with the black stripes has become so iconic and closely associated with the BUMBLEBEE character that this edition was a natural fit for both companies.”

While the aggressive styling of the Camaro is unmistakable, true TRANSFORMERS fans will notice some of the unique, but subtle features of the Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition.

The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro TRANSFORMERS Special Edition includes the following:

AUTOBOT® shield on the driver and passenger side panels
AUTOBOT® shield on each of the four wheel's center cap
AUTOBOT® shield embroidered on interior center console
"TRANSFORMERS" logo on driver and passenger doors' sill plates
"TRANSFORMERS" logo embedded into the hood rally stripes
High-gloss black center rally stripe package
Manufacturer’s suggested retail price of package: $995
Dealers are now taking orders for this car. Customers can order the TRANSFORMERS Special Edition as either a Rally Yellow LT or SS model. The optional RS appearance package can also be added.

The V6-powered Camaro uses a 3.6L engine with variable valve timing to optimize performance and fuel economy. It is SAE-certified at 304 horsepower (227 kW) and 273 lb.-ft. of torque (370 Nm). A six-speed manual transmission is standard with the 3.6L engine; a Hydra-Matic 6L50 electronically controlled six-speed automatic, with TAPshift control, is available.

The high-performance Camaro SS is equipped with a powerful 6.2L V-8, with a choice of a six-speed manual or six-speed automatic transmission. Manual transmission-equipped models receive the LS3 engine, SAE-certified at 426 horsepower (318 kW) and 420 lb.-ft. of torque (569 Nm). It is paired with a TR6060 six-speed transmission.

A new, L99 V-8 engine is used on automatic transmission-equipped SS models. It is based on the LS3, but also includes GM’s fuel-saving Active Fuel Management feature. It is SAE-certified at 400 horsepower (298 kW) and 410 lb.-ft. of torque (556 Nm). It is matched with a Hydra-Matic 6L80 six-speed transmission that helps delivers an EPA-estimated 25 mpg on the highway.

1000 dollars for some emblems...:rolleyes::rolleyes:

nards444 07-22-2009 11:41 AM

thats what was told it was going to be. Waste of money to put some cartoon stuff on the car. I think the transformers camaro thing is cool, but to start putting it on a car is kind of cheesy.

Rikarus 07-22-2009 11:48 AM

bleh, not even getting the hood....that's too bad.

Brokinarrow 07-22-2009 12:02 PM

Not even bumblebee style stripes...

camaro-brit 07-22-2009 12:07 PM

Im thinking then if you wanted this simpy order a RY 2SS and be creative with some badges and stickers easily available on ebay. If you can get the centre console from GM then job done.

FEVER 07-22-2009 12:07 PM

That would have to be a Deduct not an Add-on to the price for me. Oddly enough they will sell some.

camaro-brit 07-22-2009 12:11 PM

I think the auotobot badges are ok and are subtle enough but the transformers decal on the hood stripes makes it look nothing more than a comic strip picture. For a few bucks you could esaily get these badges from ebay and to the driver by they would know no different.

cstproductions 07-22-2009 12:12 PM

Thats just ridiculous. at least make it right for 1k more

GaryTucker 07-22-2009 12:13 PM

Well, at least it is official now. Wish it was more authentic or at least limited production and it would be worth it I guess. Disappointed that the stripes aren't even right. $995 isn't too bad I guess in the scheme of "mass produced" limited production vehicles. Someone has to pay for all the programming for the machines that turns out the badges, stripes and stitching.

TAG UR IT 07-22-2009 12:16 PM

Not a bad looking car.

BUT....

If you are going to do a Transfomers car, do it right and make it Sunrise Yellow with full length "Bumblebee" stripes. I know, I know...it costs more. Well, guess we just kind of need to figure that one out, don't we.;)

Still...a nice car. But, this is how I would have done. it.

tcseacliff 07-22-2009 12:19 PM

what about the paint? not anywhere nears as nice as the movie bumblebee!why not do it right?

Wolverine 07-22-2009 12:19 PM

I'd buy it.
