Possible to Get Bumbleebee Look Alike?

So, after seeing many pictures of the Bumbleebee car I decided I may attempt to make one similar? By similar I mean the same color (that isn't Rally Yellow is it?) scoop grill and etc.

I doubt everything on it is legal but just curious.

The paint job is custom, supposedly totaling over $20k. The hood is, as of now, a custom job, along with the exhaust and parts of the front clip. I believe the wheels are custom too. There may be some of these eventually offered in some sort of "bumblebee" package, but not as of now.

I don't have a Red Jewel Tintcoat:P

Wow, 20k?! Jesus screw that maybe whenever I am old and retired. But of course by then everyone would have forgotten about it

rally yellow with stripes and the 21 inch wheels on an SS is close enough.

The wheels are availible through GMPP Accessories. They are the wheels from the Dale Jr. concept from SEMA. Availible in full polished aluminum, or polished with Cyber Grey painted inserted like the Jr' car. I dont know prices though.

I am sure that there will be tons of lookalike bumblebee style bodykits and hoods coming from the aftermarket within a year or so of the car's release.

I just hope Saleen doesn't release the kit, because he's a total D bag

I want Rally Yellow but a lot of people in my city thinks it's a "fag" color. Plus my best friend does not like it either so:/

Saleen is going to get it's hands on Camaro, but I bet third parties will make bumblebee kits

There was talk of a Bumblebee package a while back but nothing has been said of it recently.

Yup you can put your money on that, just like the mustang.

Yea, I am and I understand that its all about your satisfaction but what if no one likes the color? I am not getting the Camaro only for myself. I am fine with cyber grey it's a great a color! Yea, they are Morons and they judge way to easily.

I wouldn't give up on the idea. It is a very expensive paint job, but there is always a way to get something cheaper. The color may not be a perfect match but I bet you can get something close to it that only enthusiasts will know the difference.

It's a great color if I Ever do get a custom paint job it will probably be that color! Sure you could get it for cheaper but nothing under 8k I bet. Why are custom paint jobs so expensive?!

I like the new BumbleBee's Hood and front clip. Show me where I can get those. Other than that it's a pretty cool color however; there's only one Bumblebee. He should stay on the silver screen.

I am getting RY and I don't think it is "Faggy" I think it is a good "sportscar" colour.
As far as Bumble bee goes, it's cool to get close to a bumblebee setup but getting exact is indeed "faggy." After all it is a movie based on a Cartoon based on a toy.

Saleen made the Bumblebee camaro used in the movie, so it wouldn't be a big stretch....
