The movie’s director Michael Bay posted a single photo of the car on his personal blog, describing it as “extraordinary and exhilarating.”
It’s not clear if the Aventador will fight on the side of good or evil, but its aggressive lines and the menacing exhaust bark of its 691-horsepower V-12 would certainly make it a great Decepticon.
Other vehicles announced for the new movie include the world’s fastest convertible, a Bugatti Veyron Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse, as well as a race-inspired Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. There will also be a real-life military truck from Oshkosh Defense that will serve as the Autobot character Hound, along with a Western Star truck that will serve as Autobot leader Optimus Prime’s vehicle mode.
The final Transformers 4 vehicle that we know of is a classic 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS, which Bumblebee will transform into instead of the modern, fifth-generation Camaro the popular Autobot used in the previous three films.
The latest instalment of the Transformers franchise is currently in filming and is set to premiere on June 27, 2014. It will be a sequel to 2011's Transformers 3 - Dark of the Moon, though it is expected to be a more serious take on the giant robot-fighting franchise and will take place roughly four years after the events of the previous movie.
None of the human characters from the past movies are expected to reappear in this installment, though we know Peter Cullen will continue to be the voice of Optimus Prime. Mark Wahlberg will play protagonist Flynn Vincent and will be joined by fellow actors Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, T.J. Miller and Bingbing Li. Though it’s yet to be confirmed, Kelsey Grammer of Frasier fame is also believed to be starring in the new movie and there's been talk of Megan Fox getting a role, too. The sexy starlet was famously left out of the third movie after allegedly having a disagreement with director Bay.
