Edmunds drives the Transformers Bumblebee Camaro

By John Pearley Huffman, Contributor - Edmunds.com

We knew what we had to do. Get the first photo ever of a 2009 Camaro doing a burnout — or at least a car that's a dead ringer for the 2009 Camaro doing a burnout.

So there we were last July near the set of Transformers, cruising along the roads surrounding an old aircraft hangar in Playa Vista, California. We were driving "Bumblebee," the Camaro that's the star of this summer's sure-to-be-blockbuster, looking for the perfect place to blaze the hides off its rear tires.

It's amazing that we even got permission. "A burnout?" one Paramount Pictures publicity person asked us. "What's that?"

It looks like Chevrolet will be using Hollywood to help promote the new Chevrolet Camaro!

Saleen, Inc is working on the cars being used for the upcoming Transformers Movie. They have a new Mustang that looks like a police car and a new version of the Chevy Camaro we have not seen yet. Leftlanenews.com originally posted some of the images below.

The live-action “Transformers” movie has been set to open nationwide on 07-04-07, it was jointly announced today by DreamWorks Pictures, Hasbro, Inc.

The feature, based on the globally popular Transformers franchise, will be directed by Michael Bay (upcoming “The Island,” “Armageddon”) from a screenplay being written by Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (upcoming “The Island”). Steven Spielberg (“War of the Worlds”) is executive producing the film, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura (upcoming “Four Brothers”), Tom DeSanto (“X-Men” and “X2: X-Men United”) and Don Murphy (“The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen”) serving as co-executive producers


In making the announcement, DreamWorks head of distribution Jim Tharp stated, Under the direction of Michael Bay, and with Steven Spielberg executive producing, we know that ‘Transformers’ is going to be the kind of explosive action movie that is perfect for the height of the summer movie season. By staking our claim on the 4th of July, 2007, we ensure that we not only have the time to make this movie the way it should be made, but also to build excitement and awareness leading up to its release.


Fans around the world have wanted a Transformers live-action movie for a long time and we are thrilled to work with DreamWorks and Paramount to bring this legendary saga to life on the big screen, said Brian Goldner, President of Hasbro’s U.S. Toy segment. With some of the entertainment industry’s best talent on board for this, fans will experience Transformers in a way that is incredibly powerful

DreamWorks will distribute the film domestically, while Paramount will handle the international release. Hasbro will work with the production team and DreamWorks on all aspects of the film’s creative development, marketing and promotions, and will manage merchandising in conjunction with the release of the film.


This week, DreamWorks is launching the official “Transformers” movie website ( www.transformers.com) at Comic-Con International, being held from July 13 – 17 in San Diego, California. “Transformers” will also be making its presence known in a big way, with a huge 18-wheeler truck sporting the instantly recognizable Transformers logo dominating the area around the DreamWorks booth—and much of the convention floor—letting thousands of fans know that “Transformers” is coming to the big screen on 07-04-07.


Introduced in 1984, the Transformers brand took the world by storm with its compelling saga of the Autobots versus the Decepticons. The innovative “Robots in Disguise” resulted in a tremendously successful toy line from Hasbro and Takara, comic book series, television program and an animated feature film. More than 20 years later, a new generation has discovered the excitement of the Transformers brand and its legendary characters, including the two leaders of the opposing sides: Optimus Prime and Megatron. Today, the franchise features a popular toy line, an animated series on the Cartoon Network and a chart-topping comic book series from IDW Publishing.

Here is the information we have been waiting for!  If you haven't already seen it, pickup the November 2006 issue of HOT ROD magazine. There is a great story (with pictures) of Bumblebee in the making at Saleen in Troy, Michigan.

According to the story, there were two versions of Bumblebee built for filming. The first one was completed in 30 days and both done in less than 45 days.  Fabrication was done at Saleen's 280,000 square foot facility in Troy, Michigan.  Steve Minn, vehicle coordinator for the film, recommended Saleen because they had built the Cobras used in xXx.

GM looked to their inventory and found the current GTO was the closest to the concept Camaro in size. With data and some sections and wheelbase drawings from GM, Saleen began their fabrication.   The two Pontiac GTOs came from GM's R&D fleet and Joe Miesak (Saleen) went to work.

The fiberglass bodies were cast using the same molds GM used to build the two concept cars.

The interior looks much like the concept Camaro because the dashboard shell covers the original GTO instrumentation and the seats and interior handles came directly from the GTO as well.

GM had a say in the paint work. Supplied by Valspar Automotive finishes, code PBC30 -- Sunrise Yellow, Bumblebees paint looks great!
They altered the original stripes planned by Saleen to more closely resemble the Rally stripes from the 1969 Camaro.

Here are some images from the HOT ROD magazine spread:

Information on this car has ceased on the internet, nobody is talking.  If anyone has any more pictures or details on this car, please contact us.  As always, we will treat your information with discretion - Joe@MichiganClassics.com

June 15, 2006

Information coming in tells us this car is running on a current GTO chassis, not a Mustang as some have reported.  The Current GTO and the Camaro Concept do share the same 110" wheelbase.
Is the body and interior from GM?

Are there more cars running around then the Silver and Red versions making the circuit?

June 5, 2006

Here is a picture of the 2005 Pontiac GTO interior, so much for the speculation the movie car is built on this platform with this interior:

Here is the 2005 Ford Mustang Interior...

Here is the Camaro Concept car interior...

Neither the Mustang nor the GTO look too much like the interior of the movie car...

 

 

June 4, 2006

Word is that this car is actually a Ford Mustang built at Saleen Inc. in Troy, Michigan that was fitted with custom body panels resembling a Chevrolet Camaro Concept car. We put a call into Saleen June 1, 2006,  and they are treating this information as 'confidential'.

Other sources speculate this car is built on a current Pontiac GTO platform.  Looking closely at the interior shot of this car, it looks nothing like a Ford Mustang, but a possible production version of the Chevrolet Camaro - with an automatic transmission.

Is this car actually from GM? Does it mean the car is may be closer to production then the GM is saying? All speculation. If you have any information, checkout the forums at 5thgen.org and post your ideas
