Chevrolet aims to get a lot of buzz with the new Bumblebee Camaro, which it hopes will ride the wave as one of the summer movie season’s anticipated blockbusters, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, rolls into theaters across the country.
The black-and-gold Camaro honors Bumblebee, one of the Autobots from the Tranformers series, which can readily transform themselves from cars to fighting machines in the seeming blink of an eye. The good news is that you don’t have be Shia Labeouf to drive one.
The 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro starts out as either a Camaro 2LS or 2SS with the RS Appearance Package. Cough up another $3,000 and you’’ get not only Bumblebee’s exterior color scheme but a special rear spoiler, black-out 20-inch alloy wheels with Autobot logo center caps, and fender-mounted Autobot badges.
