The glamorous vehicles to be featured in the Dark Of The Moon movie are certainly a sight to behold. Thanks to Flickr member CEOFR, we've got a great look at Sideswipe, Bumblebee, and the yet to be named Benz and Ferrari. Sideswipe is a Corvette Stingray convertible concept, while Bumblebee is a Chevrolet Camaro, modified from his ROTF appearance. The two unnamed Autobots take the form of a red Ferrari and a blue Mercedes-Benz. Check out some of the images below, while the rest can be seen on Flickr.

Damn it! I can't get a clear view of the Mercedes.

I want to see the darn Mercedes to see what Einstein's style gonna be!!

Wonder if he's gonna be like Beast in X-Men: The Last Stand, being a genius and prefering peaceful aproach, but still a capable fighter?

NO!!!!!! Stop it!!! No, I want Sideswipe! I swear, I'll be able to assemble a team of highly trained spies and thieves to help me steal that thing if they don't put it out. Sure, I'd be the only suspect for the crime, because I'd be the only person in the world with that car, but who gives a damn!? I want Sideswipe, and desperate times call for desperate ass measures.

Benz= Wheeljack
Ferrari= Hot Rod

At least thats what I'm hoping. I don't know why so many people has such a hardon for cliffjumper, but i doubt thats him.

Not saying its bad, but all the time its cliffjumpers mods and stuff...i dont get it

Well, then I hope you're rich, 'cause even if it is real Corvette Stingray, it would probably cost some pretty big bucks.

Just in case, it might be useable info:

It's still a concept, sorry.
HOWEVER, GM is currently developing the C7 Corvette, which little is known about it. It could be unveiled next year and released in 2013. Again, we have no idea what it will look like, but I'd bet money it'll be influenced by this concept car somehow.


As for the mysterious other cars of the movie, I'm really hoping the Mercedes Benz is Wheeljack (it has to be) and the Ferrari I pray is Hot Rod (I'll be very upset if he isn't).

Well, his face resembles Albert Einstein, so unless you have no knowledge of G1 or the character of Wheeljack, you can make the connection. ;)

I'm pretty sure that concept can never be street legal because of the split rear window. The '63 was the only year that had that and then they made it illegal because it restricted the driver's view. It's still a hot piece of machinery, but I think I might take the 458 over that.... *GASP*

Why would the ferrari be cliffjumper when you already have Bumblebee???

Benz must be Wheeljack cause in G1 his face is similar to einstein and wheeljack is smart since he made the dinobots. The face resemble G1, especially w/ the micky mouse ears.

i heard they released the pics of the action figure ferrari...

There is no current law specifing the visibility needed to the rear of the vehicle. Only to the front and sides ahead of the driver. You can board up the rear windows if you wanted to. How else do you explain panel vans as well as vans with split rear doors with windows. They would present the same problems as the 63' Vette.

What would make that concept illeagal would be the lack of saftly equipment as well as turn signals and such.

:BOT:

I've seen a couple places on captions & comments of pics of the Mercedes, that it's been called just 'Q'.
I'm not exactly sure who as a character that is - I saw 'autobot scientist', but I personally have never heard of Q.
There was never a name for the Ferarri.
