Director Michael Bay has confirmed that Transformers 4 will feature a new cast
including Mark Wahlberg, but it appears some new vehicles will also join the Autobots on the big screen.
According to photos posted to the official Transformers Facebook fan page
today, it appears the new 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and the Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse will join the Autobots.
And after three movies it's apparently time for Optimus Prime to receive an upgrade, too, with a new design featuring a massive power bulge on the hood, six exhaust stacks along with two side pipes, and a snazzy new flame paint job.
The C7 Corvette Stingray
appears to be sporting Chevrolet's Synergy Green paint, unannounced wheels, body skit, graphics package, and a large rear wing. Let's not forget about the concept-car mirrors. While we could do without all the extra stuff seen on this C7 Corvette, we do kind of like this green paint and hope it'll become an option later in the C7's model cycle.
The Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse
features 1,200 horsepower and 1,106 pound-feet of torque. That should be more than enough power to outrun any Decepticon that it may encounter, that is unless it can hit 255 mph.
While there clearly will be a few new Autobots on the screen, it appears Bumlebee will be going retro as a highly modified 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS. This won't be the first time in the Transformers saga that Bumblebee is a vintage Camaro. For those who remember, Bumblebee was originally a 1977 Camaro in the first film before changing into a Camaro Concept.
Transformers 4 will hit cinemas nationwide on June 27, 2014. Stay tuned for more updates.
