Talking 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! Thumbs up to his engenuity and efforts

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

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.

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

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.

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...

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.

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

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.
