Those fans of Transformers’ Bumblebee can now get themselves a $3,000 package to their 2012 Rally Yellow Camaros, transforming it to the movie-inspired Autobot. Available in all major markets around the world, the Transformers Special Edition Chevy Camaro will be available for order starting in July with deliveries in North America estimated to begin in September.
Clearly Chevrolet believes that the Transformers franchise has helped reintroduce the Camaro to the general public after its seven-year hiatus. And who are we to argue with its impressive sales numbers. Chevrolet claims it sold 40,275 Camaros this year, widening the gap to Ford’s Mustang, who only sold 30,206 units in the same time frame.
The Transformers Special Edition package will be available on 2LT and 2SS Rally Yellow Camaro Coupes and has several more add-ons in addition to the RS appearance package. Your personal Bumblebee replica will include black rally stripes over the hood, roof, decklid and rear spoiler to give it the infamous Bumblebee look. For wheels, black-painted 20-inchers will find their way on the Camaro with Autobot Shield logos on the center caps. Those same logos can also be seen on the front-quarter panels.
For the interior, don’t expect this Camaro to come to life and speak to you, nor will it come with Megan Fox in the passenger seat. Instead, you’ll be treated with black leather interior with yellow accents and Autobot Shield logos embroidered on the front head rests and center console lid.
