Many thanks to RE515TANT, who dropped by with some great images and a short video clip of the Rally Fighter vehicle from the "Transformes 4" filming in Texas. These images give us our best look to date at the vehicle, which has yet to revealed as a Transformer or human vehicle. Enjoy the embedded video and images below.

Special thanks to MacDogg for driving while I filmed.

Somebody's bound to like it but I think it's ugly as hell. It's a freakin sports car with monster truck wheels and a paint job that looks like black primer. Larry the Cable Guy would love it.

Hehe, yeah, that would be me :P.

I really dig this thing and I'm betting it's one of the Dreds in a new form due in part to the colors as well as the large Cadillac behind it with matching rims.

I like gunmetal as a color on badass cars (I'm also a big fan of the Batmobile :P).

Them rims/tires give the vehicle a Decepticon feeling. Maybe shall I say Knockout, just guessing.

Every time I see this I think Lockdown. I really hope it's him. The vehicle looks very similar to his.

As long as he doesn't die, it better be Ratchet. And Hound isn't there because he's already been killed off. :lol: ..... I seriously hope not. :-(

The rally fighter is fitting for one of the dreds.

I hope the Decepticons have good color schemes this time around.

There was too much grey and black in the previous films.

Let's see some purple Decepticon insignia! :CON:

I'm by no means bashing those who actually have not saw the movies. I give them props for actually standing by their words. Its the ones who complain but still go see the movies and complain even more that bugs me. As for the Flat nose still being used in the UK I was completely unaware of that. That's awesome!

I'd actually argue the opposite. I don't think it's fair to judge the movies unless you've actually seen them and it's possible that those who do continue to go see them in theatres (me not being one of them ever since RotF, although I did rent DotM) or see them afterwards on video etc. are simply giving the sequels the benefit of the doubt to see if things have improved. DotM for example, while far from perfect, was far superior to RotF.

That's not a high bar. Drying paint is better than ROTF. At least the drying paint won't shove wrecking ball testicles in your face.

I will concede that DOTM was decent, however.

@ xyl360 I can see where you're coming from there. I've never thought about that way. Yeah DOTM was a tremendous improvement over ROTF and I do feel bad for the folks that lost faith during ROTF or even before. I can understand watching to see if things improved. I admit I do have one thing myself to complain about. Why the hell is Hound NOT Bulkhead??? Im happy to see a live action version of Hound but That vehicle mode SCREAMS Bulkhead! Ratchet (if indeed this pic does prove to be such) This is a big improvement from the H2 Mod.

"Sports car with monster truck wheels," REALLY???

You would think such a "Die Hard" Transformer fan would be at least a LITTLE into cars and trucks to keep up with our favorite bots :HEADHURTS:

What you are looking at is a Porsche Cayenne...Which is Porsche's Crossover/SUV. SOOOOO what you are looking at is an SUV with Monster Truck tires NOT a sports car. :BANG_HEAD:

Personally it looks badass...a badass TRUCK with all-terrain tires. :michaelbay:

Actually... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Porsche_Cayenne

http://localmotors.com/rallyfighter/

Not a Cayenne.

I didn't look in too much detail, but it looks to be a purpose-built off-road/rally vehicle. I don't see anything there that looks like it was taken from a Cayenne.

Also, monster truck tires are bigger. Those are just large offroad beadlock wheels, similar to what short course trucks use.

>:oP

Well it certainly looks like someone ripped of the iconic looks of a Porsche for this "Rally Fighter." Never heard of these things till I saw that website... I stand corrected :BOWDOWN:

Still looks like that company ripped off Porsche's design cues :HEADHURTS:

As far as WHO it is... I will go with a Con. Which Con?? I refuse to say anything of that sort after the whole Brawl vs. Devestator thing from part 1. :michaelbay:

It's not a Porsche nor is it based on any other production vehicle. It's a custom purpose built machine. It does how ever use various parts from other vehicles (engine a Chevy LS3 used in the camaro/corvette, cooling system from a dodge challenger, etc. ( nothing borrowed from Porsche however). Body panels are completely custom.

I'm really liking this. Looks awesome and I hope it's a bot and not a human.vehicle so we get a toy out of it.

Look on the Brightside...some of the BEST movie toys were "human vehicles" that became bots for toys :grin: but were never bots in the movies...

My only regret is we NEVER got our Mt. Dew machine toy...Sure, I got a toaster, but come on!!! Of course the vacuum was the best looking out the the AppliaCons...yep, that's right, I coined a phrase!! :DANCE: Still pisses me off that Bee got yelled at for saving Sam's bitchy ass that was running away from them :HEADHURTS:

Anyways... my point, human or actual bot, we could still see a toy, AND I think the human vehicle toys came out BETTER because they were not limited by the movie or CGI models. Just saying...

I am kind of biased, being that I drive something covered in black primer, namely this:


That said I actually really dig the looks of that Rally Fighter and have to imagine it would be a load of fun to take one of those off-road :D
