If you’ve followed me online via my other Twitter account (@ScottBourne) or at my other site (Photofocus.com) you may remember that about two years ago I purchased a yellow and black Dodge Challenger SRT-8. Great car but NOT the Bumblebee. Little kids would stop me and ask me if it was Bumblebee and frankly I got tired of explaining the difference between Dodge and Chevy.
But now – I can buy the REAL Bumblebee and so can you. Chevrolet announced that the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro will be offered as a $3000 upgrade on 2LT and 2SS Camaro Coupes with Rally Yellow Paint. In addition to the content offered in the RS appearance package, the Transformers edition will feature black rally stripes that stretch over the hood, roof, decklid and high-wing rear spoiler; 20-inch, black-painted wheels wrapped in high-performance summer tires; and Autobot Shield logos on the center caps and front quarter panels.
Inside, the Transformers Camaro has a black leather interior accented with yellow stitching on the instrument panel, center console, armrests and seats. Autobot Shield logos are embroidered on the front headrests, as well as the center console lid.
Two dealer-installed options are also available: exclusive, 21-inch, black-painted wheels and a black ground-effects package.
Customers may begin ordering the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro in July, with vehicles arriving at dealers in the U.S. and Canada in September.
And yes, I plan to order one. I’m just waiting on final pricing information from my dealer. And yes – I am really just a big kid. So what?
