The very first 2012 Transformers 3 Package Camaro special edition was introduced at last week’s Woodward dream cruise and of course our members have posted the very first photos of this special edition Camaro.
In conjunction with the 2012 Transformers Camaro’s public debut, GM has profiled the Transformer packages’ designer - Adam Barry, Senior Creative Manager, Corvette and Camaro, Accessories and Specialty Builds. He has been responsible for overseeing the design of the Camaro’s various special editions and packages, including the various Transformer editions.
You don’t have to speak Cybertronian to understand what’s so rad about the latest special edition Transformers package for the 2012 Chevrolet Camaro.
When this car shows up in your review mirror, you’ll definitely do a double take, and then some! Bold yellow paint with pumped up black stripes, a high-wing rear spoiler and black-on-black wheels… this car looks like Bumblebee, straight from the set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. It’s enough to make Sam Witwicky‘s heart beat fast.
“It’s so cool to see little five-year olds standing in front of the car saying, ‘Wake up, wake up.’ And, I’ll ask them, ‘Who do you want to wake up?’ And, they’ll say ‘Bumblebee,’” says Adam Barry, Senior Creative Manager, Corvette and Camaro, Accessories and Specialty Builds.
A self-described “Transformers geek” who still has his Autobot action figures, Barry says that when he found out about the project, he jumped all over it. “There’s no question that this specialty package was designed by someone who loves, Transformers,” says Barry.
It’s the little details — like Cybertronian symbols spelling “Transformers” on the spoiler, Autobot logos on the wheel caps and front quarter panel and an awesome interior with black leather seats and bright yellow stitching — that give this Chevrolet extra attitude.
“When you see this car,” says Barry, “you’re not going to think it’s a car, you’re going to think it is Bumblebee… and you’re going to be looking around for the other Autobots. How cool is that?” Plus, if any Decepticons show up, you’ll be able to handle them.
You can order the Transformers Specialty package now. It’s due in dealerships in September.
