The new Mercedes-AMG GT R will have a starring role in the upcoming Transformers 5 movie.
Director Michael Bay tweeted the above photo, alluding that the Mercedes-AMG GT R will take on the role of Drift, a good-guy Autobot that converted to bad-guy Decepticon. Filming for Transformers: The Last Knight started earlier this summer, and Bay previously unveiled the new Bumblebee, which is being played by the new Chevrolet Camaro.
Other characters that have been confirmed include Hound, Crosshairs, Sqweeks and Barricade. Hound is an Autobot that transforms into an Oshkosh Defense Medium Tactical Vehicle, while Crosshairs is an Autobot that will transform into a Chevrolet Corvette Stingray. The Ford Mustang will also make a return with the role of Barricade and you can expect to see Sqweeks showing up as a Vespa.
The fifth Transformers movie is scheduled to arrive theaters June 23, 2017.
