Pagani Huayra on the set of Transformers 4 movieEnlarge Photo
Hollywood director Michael Bay just couldn’t contain himself from revealing the latest star to join the Transformers 4 crew, a Pagani Huayra supercar. Knowing what the Huayra is capable of, we wouldn’t have been able to keep it a secret either.
Bay posted this image of the Huayra on his personal blog, where he also described the car as being a “masterpiece of design and engineering.”
This particular Huayra is finished in a never-before-seen color from Pagani, blood red, and it has a particularly fierce look to it that would make it an ideal Decepticon in the new movie, though it’s entirely possible the car could be an Autobot or perhaps, dare we say it, just a car.
Other vehicles announced for Transformers 4 include a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse, a Corvette Stingray and Sonic RS rally car from Chevrolet, a Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4, a military truck from Oshkosh Defense, a Western Star truck, and a classic 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Interestingly, a modern, fifth-generation Camaro SS has also been spotted on one of the movie's sets, suggesting Autobot Bumblebee will transform into both versions during the movie.
The latest instalment of the Transformers franchise is currently being filmed and is set to premiere nationwide on June 27, 2014. The movie will take place roughly four years after the events of 2011's Transformers 3 - Dark of the Moon, though none of the previous human characters are expected to return.
Mark Wahlberg will play protagonist Flynn Vincent and is set to 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 movie.
