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.
Schwabenfolia bolted on a TVS2300 Magnuson compressor to the Camaro SS’ 6.2-liter V8 engine boosting output to 518-horses (525PS).
To optimize handling, the tuner upgraded the chassis with a KW coilover suspension, while the SS rides on 20-inch wheels wrapped in tires size 245 up front and 275 at the rear.
On the outside, visual modifications include a special foil wrap in a matte shade called ‘Anodized Blue’, with the roof, center part of the hood, mirror caps and rear spoiler decorated in a ‘Black Brushed Steel’ wrap, and the sides with a white pin stripe. The finish touch comes via a pair of LSD doors.
