[NAIAS 2008] Camaro Bumblebee (As Seen In The Movie)

Anyone who followed the coverage of CES probably saw the giant Bumblebee Transformer mockup that was looming over the show. And while he appeared there in robot form, it only makes sense that he’d also make an appearance at the Detroit Auto Show in car form. But while the robot mockup was probably never used in the film (except as maybe lighting reference for the CG guys) this Camaro apparently was. In fact I could feel the presence of Shia LaBeouf while I was taking these shots.

The Camaro Bumblebee actually made its debut at the GM Style event held last weekend. Unfortunately due to the crowds I didn’t manage to get a lot of great photos of the event, but I managed to squeeze in a few lucky shots here and there.

And as usual, you can find a few more shots of the car and its blinding paintjob after the jump.

    yummy chedda cheese yellow! cut me a slice of that medium! . . . (or should I say bee’s wax yellow?.. not quite so yummy though)

    aren’t those 70’s circa Vega tail lights snazzy? Not. Doesn’t even resemble the retro camaro they are trying to pass off. And Bumble bee was a name of a Chrysler product wasn’t it. Generous Motors needs to go back to the drawing board

    well I think the design is great, and I love the movie, but I must be hungry today because I kept thinking of cheese when I saw this!
