Chevrolet readying limited edition Bumblebee Camaro
The Chevrolet Camaro may have been the star of the first Transformers movie, but the reinvented pony car was still two-years away from production when the movie hit the big screen. Luckily for Chevrolet, the follow-up to the first movie - "Revenge of the Fallen" - took two years to make, meaning the car will actually be in dealerships at the same time it's on the silver screen this go around. To commemorate that almost simultaneous launch, Chevrolet is reportedly readying a version of the Bumblebee movie car for the streets.
According to Camaro5, Chevrolet has given the green light to a limited edition Bumblebee Camaro. Staying true to the movie car, the limited edition Camaro will feature a Rally Yellow paint job complete with black stripes. Other unique touches will include Transformer badging on the wheel center caps and sill plates, as well as an embroidered center console lid.
The Bumblebee package will be available on LT and SS models.
Chevrolet dealers will begin taking orders for the limited edition model on June 1st, with production set to kick off on June 24th - the same day the film hits theaters nationwide. No word on a production run or pricing, but we expect to hear more on the subject in the coming days.
