  • Auction of four Bumblebee Camaros from the Transformers movies on January 19, 2019

    In the mid-2000s, Chevrolet was preparing to bring the Camaro nameplate back from the dead with a fifth generation of the muscle car icon. Ahead of the production reveal, the Camaro earned a starring role in the first of Michael Bay's Transformers movies as the vehicle mode of the Autobot Bumblebee. The original 2007 movie, "Transformers," ignited a firestorm of popularity surrounding the car, which even led to Chevrolet introducing its own Bumblebee Edition cars. But the Camaro's role in the movies didn't end there. Three additional designs based on the modern Camaro were conceived for...

  • Letrons real-life Transformer

    The Autobots and Deceptions may be able to produce an impressive amount of destruction in Michael Bay's Transformers movies, but in reality they're little more than a collection of computer-generated graphics. But now a company in Turkey claims to have built a real-life Transformer. Letvision recently released photos and video of a BMW 3-Series Coupe that turns into a robot, called Letrons. The company even plans to sell these things, according to Gizmodo. However, Letvision is light on details about how much one will cost, and when it will be available.

    A black and red Mercedes-Benz AMG GT R will play a leading role in the next Transformers movie, which in usual fashion was confirmed by director Michael Bay. The brains behind the movie posted a photo of the GT R presumably in Arizona—note the Saguaro cacti—on his blog with the simple caption, "Drift".

  • Optimus Prime made from car parts in Thailand

    Recycling has a noble if not especially exciting image. You separate your trash into different containers, it gets taken away, and a month down the line the magazine you're reading or bottle you're drinking from is probably made from parts of the magazine or bottle you threw away. A nice thought, and you've done your bit for reducing waste, but it's all fairly intangible.
