Barrett Jackson’s original 1967 Chevrolet Camaro from Transformers: Age of Extinction auctioned off at a Scottsdale auction.
The car shines in the first half of the action as the Bumblebee before being replaced by a custom Camaro SS concept designed specifically for the movie.
Since completing the filming of the fourth part of Transformers, director Michael Bay has taken ownership of this special restomod.
This Camaro is very different from the others in the late ’60s as it underwent a range of extensive visual modifications. Notably, it features a wide body kit with massive flared wheel arches and a large front splitter. There’s also (very) wide rims and tires, a number of matte yellow accents, Transformers graphics, and a bootlid lip spoiler.
Under the hood is a large, naturally aspirated Chevrolet V8, while other custom components include Willwood brakes and bespoke suspension.
While many movie cars feature poorly equipped interiors, this one is beautifully finished in black leather with white stitching and includes large struts along the side to strengthen the chassis.
