Sports-car fans who fantasize about being an Autobot can now make their dual fantasy a reality--with the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro Transformers special edition.
Essentially, the car turns the character Bumblebee from the movie into a road-going option package for an extra $995. Just as on the silver screen, the Camaro is yellow with a black rally stripes on the hood, and is available on the LT or SS models, with the RS appearance package an additional option.
The Transformers edition also includes Autobot shields (Autobots are the good guys in the movie) on the side panels and the center caps of the wheels, as well as an embroidered shield on the center console. The Transformers logo shows up on the sill plates and hood stripes.
General Motors announced the package on Wednesday in San Diego. It's available for order now through dealerships.
The Camaro appeared in the 2007 Transformers movie, and returned for an encore performance in this summer's flick. The Bumblebee Camaro also was shown at the Chicago auto show.
“When the first Transformers movie was setting box-office records, we had countless customers asking to purchase the ‘Bumblebee' Camaro,” Karen Rafferty, Chevrolet product marketing director, said in a statement.
The basic Camaro specs remain. The base car comes with a 304-hp V6 and a manual or automatic transmission. The 400-hp V8 is paired with an automatic, and the top-shelf 426-hp version comes with a manual or automatic.
