Cool First 2012 Transformers Camaro Pics & Designer Adam Barry Profiled

Info on 2012 Transformers Camaro Special Edition: http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showthread.php?t=155150

”Transformers” Fan Gives Bumblebee Extra Sting

You don’t have to speak Cybertronian to understand what’s so rad about the latest special edition Transformers package for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro.

When this car shows up in your review mirror, you’ll definitely do a double take, and then some! Bold yellow paint with pumped up black stripes, a high-wing rear spoiler and black-on-black wheels… this car looks like Bumblebee, straight from the set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It’s enough to make Sam Witwicky‘s heart beat fast.

“It’s so cool to see little five-year olds standing in front of the car saying, ‘Wake up, wake up.’ And, I’ll ask them, ‘Who do you want to wake up?’ And, they’ll say ‘Bumblebee,’” says Adam Barry, Senior Creative Manager, Corvette and Camaro, Accessories and Specialty Builds.

A self-described “Transformers geek” who still has his Autobot action figures, Barry says that when he found out about the project, he jumped all over it. “There’s no question that this specialty package was designed by someone who loves, Transformers,” says Barry.

It’s the little details — like Cybertronian symbols spelling “Transformers” on the spoiler, Autobot logos on the wheel caps and front quarter panel and an awesome interior with black leather seats and bright yellow stitching — that give this Chevrolet extra attitude.

“When you see this car,” says Barry, “you’re not going to think it’s a car, you’re going to think it is Bumblebee… and you’re going to be looking around for the other Autobots. How cool is that?” Plus, if any Decepticons show up, you’ll be able to handle them.

You can order the Transformers Specialty package now. It’s due in dealerships in September.

As much as I hate black-painted aluminum wheels, those glossy ones look good.

I wish they'd offer it in another color, I'd buy one, but not yellow. I wouldn't be able to deal with a yellow car. Now if it was the real transformer's color, that would be different! Sweet car!

Dumb question, but are they going to offer a ZL1 TF3 edition? If so, that'd be sweet

Last I read on it the answer was no.

Only 2SS and 2LT. With the 45th aniversary package being less than 1/2 the cost of the transformers and it only being placed on 2ss and 2lt instead of last time (1lt, 2lt, 1ss, 2ss in 2010 @$990) I'm betting there will be very few of these made compared to last time and the 45th ones.

Yeah, I'm not sure why they don't just DO IT if they're gonna call it a TF3 edition! C'mon, get the color right and make it look EXACTLY like the real one! If you did that, I'd trade mine in Oh, and I'd lose the spoiler....

speaking of high wing spoilers...what provides more downforce a dovetail or a highwing? do these cars even get up to speed enough (1/4 mile or autocross ... something legal) to benefit from one? or are they just for looks?

i love the stripes, and the wheels are pretty awesome. im the same way though, i would be more likely to buy one if they came in different colors. im not a yellow car kinda guy myself. as it is, if i were in the market id just buy the same old black lol
