Bumblebee Camaro Look alike?

While drooling over videos of Bumble on youtube and on the insert for the Transformers DVD, I was wondering if the color was actually Rally Yellow? I want to emulate as close as possible to Bumblebee on the movie. Anyone have any details? Suggestions on how to get the info?

Thanks.

I think its sunset something or other, really really expensive. Anyhow no it's not a factory color, but who knows next year they may have something similar.

Thanks for the info. I though there was a little orange in the color, but wasn't sure if that was due to any photographic filters.

How do you find the SEARCH button?

And can anyone help me out. My son is writing a paper for his English class. He's stuck because he can't think of a synonym for "thesaurus."

The paint job is not even close to $15,000... Gimme a break.. If you order the camaro in white, then all you need to do is buy the base coat and the clear. The paint is around $70.00qt so figure how many quarts you need and then the cost of the labor. It will not be $15,000... The expensive part will be the three coats of pearl and then the clear on top.. However figure the whole thing would be no more than $5,000 for the entire paint job and that is including labor.

Here is the information we have been waiting for! If you haven't already seen it, pickup the November 2006 issue of HOT ROD magazine. There is a great story (with pictures) of Bumblebee in the making at Saleen in Troy, Michigan.
According to the story, there were two versions of Bumblebee built for filming. The first one was completed in 30 days and both done in less than 45 days. Fabrication was done at Saleen's 280,000 square foot facility in Troy, Michigan. Steve Minn, vehicle coordinator for the film, recommended Saleen because they had built the Cobras used in xXx.
GM looked to their inventory and found the current GTO was the closest to the concept Camaro in size. With data and some sections and wheelbase drawings from GM, Saleen began their fabrication. The two Pontiac GTOs came from GM's R&D fleet and Joe Miesak (Saleen) went to work.
The fiberglass bodies were cast using the same molds GM used to build the two concept cars.
The interior looks much like the concept Camaro because the dashboard shell covers the original GTO instrumentation and the seats and interior handles came directly from the GTO as well.
GM had a say in the paint work. Supplied by Valspar Automotive finishes, code PBC30 -- Sunrise Yellow, Bumblebees paint looks great!
They altered the original stripes planned by Saleen to more closely resemble the Rally stripes from the 1969 Camaro.

It's actually fairly expansive. I figured up the cost on here a few months ago and paint and labor came up just a little over $14,000.

you would need approximately 3 quarts of paint to do one layer on a midsize car

No way $5000.....Labor for a reputable shop will be over $5000. If you spend less you will get a shit job for sure!!!!! Dont price shop and destroy your car!

I was quoted $5,000 for the whole job at a very good shop. However that was if I could wait until white was available. It does become more expensive the more layers of pearl you use and if you had to repaint the car white. It would be about two to three grand more.

Love the posts, thanks. Here is some info that I came across.

I asked Seleen about their involvement and could they verify the paint color. Here is their response....

Unfortunately, the paint color is pripoitory to Hasbro Brand. Although I
can tell you that the paint color is one of BASF.

So I go to BASF site and here is their response.....

I have found out that the Yellow used on the Transformers Bumble Bee is an exclusive color & the formula will not be made public.

I think that the Valspar Sunrise will do nicely.

On the transformers movie "extras", they said it cost them $75,000 to get that paint color. It had so many layers and coats to achieve that color.
