While cruising around GM’s Proving Grounds center in Michigan in search for prototypes, our spies were surprised to see a filming crew for the upcoming Transformers 4 blockbuster, and together, an assortment of new Autobots, including the new Bumblebee dressed in a 2014 Camaro Coupe suite.
Other models featured on the set include the 2014 Corvette Stingray, a Bugatti Veyron Grand Vitesse, a Medium Tactical Vehicle from Oshkosh Defense (Hound,)and the Optimus Prime truck, all of which we’ve already had the opportunity to see through Michael Bay’s photo releases.
While not seen here, other vehicles that have been confirmed for the movie that arrives in cinemas next summer are the Lamborghini Aventador, Pagani Huarya, Daimler’s Freightliner trucks.

A new-look Optimus Prime has been snapped on the set of Michael Bay’s upcoming ‘Transformers 4’, accompanied by two mystery Autobots - but who are those robots in disguise?
The mystery production pics show the “classy” looking black and blue Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse, worth an estimated £1.6 million, and what Bay calls a “special race-inspired” electric green C7 Corvette, which we’re guessing ain’t cheap either.
The second car is a striking electric green Corvette Stingray, which director Michael Bay says is a “special race-inspired” model .
However, it has not yet been announced which characters will be played by the new cars, while speculation suggests a revival of the Deceptacon (bad guy) bounty hunter Lockdown or even Dinobots. The cast is also getting some new members including comedian TJ Miller, who will co-star along Mark Wahlberg and the regulars.
Despite building what is unquestionably the ugliest C7 Corvette Stingray in the world, Transformers 4 successfully made a pretty-looking Bumblebee out of a 1967 Camaro.
