Ferrari 458 Italia To Be Next Transformers Autobot

Follow Nelson

Ferrari's latest sports car, the 458 Italia, is set to join the big screen as the latest Autobot in the third Transformers movie from Michael Bay. The confirmation comes this week as Bay preps filming of the new movie. The news was revealed at the Ferrari charity event for Haiti, where the first U.S.-market Italia sold for $530,000.

The Italia pairs a howling 4.5-liter V-8 with a new, sleeker and more futuristic look for performance that one-ups its predecessor, the F430. With cars like the Chevrolet Camaro, GMC Topkick, Hummer H2, Peterbilt 379, Chevrolet Corvette, and Chevrolet Volt the typical fare for the Autobots in recent Transformers movies, the Ferrari 458 Italia is set to add some serious spice an on-screen impact.

We'll have to wait until the movie gets closer to release before we'll likely get any glimpses of the transformation or the role it will play, but it's almost certain to be the most exciting of the robotic cars to hit the screen yet.

  1. no movie sucked more than transformers 2. this actually slightly tarnishes the italia's record for me. michael bay needs to quit making movies and instead become a special effects director

  3. I hope the 458 does not suffer the same fade as the Audi R8 in the Transformer 2, right at the beginning sequence of the movie, the Deceptcon R8 get cut in half by one of the Autobot....
