Those aren't rotors. They are brake dust covers. Note the absence of any calipers. I like the wheels and the hood, but as posted earlier...I hope the front end facilitates some weapons or something, because to me it looks hideous.

Maybe I'm wrong, but bumblebee seems to be still based on the concept and not on the pre pro car (mirrors, tail, spoiler ...)

I've got it....okay, there's only one hole in this theory (color), but that could be taken care of pretty easily.....

This isn't Bumblebee....it's for the new Knight Rider series.

- They realized they screwed up making KITT a Mustang.
- The "red" we are seeing on the bow tie isn't so much an outline as it is a glow from the pulsating light that "sweeps" across the emblem.
- The "new" hood, facia, splitter, and even wheels are for the "attack" mode of KITT, not the normal mode (Note, unlike the 'Stang, all they had to do to make the attack mode of the Camaro was give it a splitter for high speed stability, a bigger hood scoop and front facia brake ducts for more airflow, not all that other crap that they needed on the Ford...lol)
- The color could even be part of KITT's camouflage thing, they just used the Bumblebee color as a tribute to the "original" on-screen 5th Gen hero.
-The other cars in the pictures are just the "extras" that GM gave them for the show. It's a little surprising that they would show off a brand new concept or two in a probably-going-to-get-axed-after-a-couple-episodes TV show, but whatever.

I think that's it....this is KITT.

Phew.




Okay, back to reality...like I said, I think the front end gives it too much of a ricer look. That could change with color, lighting, or even different angles. Maybe it will grow on me, especially when I see one in person, but for right now, I hope that isn't the front end they're going with.

I like the concept drawing above for the hood; kinda' goes back to the 4th. Gen. style. I think that would be very nice too.

I like the wheels, hood, bumper and splitter. I'm thinking Supercharged SS!!
Actually,

i hope that just on this car

i like the gold emblem... as for everything else they changed
i dont have a problem..With i dont necessarily like the rims... but i dont hate them... it'll probably be somewhere at the beginning That someone says bumblebee looks different!? And they'll make some joke about it.

you have to remember Bumble bee got his legs blown off in the first movie
so maybe thats the reason he looks different cause they had to fix him up!
You're right, it should be black + orange on this version.

Look how the wheel spoke magnifies the brake rotor behind it...





I'm thinking they did this for a CGI special effect to be added later???

I don't get what all the hubub is on the wheels. They're just the vert' concept's wheels except chromed and with the center of the wheel not painted a darker shade. You can even vaguely see the rectangular lugnut pits.
