Speculation has run rampant regarding the identity of the Lamborghini Aventador LP 700–4 since it's reveal late last week. Many have suspected that it could be a Stunticon based on vehicle mode and it's recent on set appearance with the older model cab over style truck, however Bay's camp seems to indicate the character is an Autobot. Sorry Stunticon fans.

Bay's official twitter account queried:

Why is everyone assuming the #aventador is a #decepticon ? #transformers #transformers4 #tf4



Re: Transformers 4 Vehicles Revealed.

They also retweeted the following from Top Gear:

A Lambo Aventador has joined a Bugatti Veyron in the cast of Transformers 4. Autobots clearly have a need for speed http://ow.ly/lSs6L

HAHA! Jokes on you! You can't ruin a terrible character! :D


:lol:


If that turns out to be Hot Rod, Bay is going to do what he did in his past 3 transformers movies. And that is make this possible lambo/Hot Rod part of another BlockBuster multi million dollar grossing film.


Ladies and gentleman you have just witnessed the most objectively neutral comment ever made about a Michael Bay film in the history of the internet. I'm impressed. :BOWDOWN:

I realize I'm probably reading a bit more into this than needs be, but this is Bay...he never gives a flat-out simple, truthful answer about the robot cast.

"The Mercedes is just Carly's car." - Turned out to be Soundwave. :michaelbay:
"The Twins aren't in the movie, I'll give $25,000 to anyone who can spot them." :michaelbay:
Though clumsily edited out of Sentinel's rampage, they could still be seen in vehicle mode entering N.E.S.T.

So.....for now, I still think this could easily be a Decepticon. Why? Bay's tweet just asked why everyone assumed it was going to be a Decepticon...it danced around the question without answering it flat out. The other tweet says the Aventador "joined" the cast. Then, it says something about the Autobots having a need for speed....but it didn't actually connect the two statements.

Neither of the tweets explicitly said "The Lamborghini Aventador is going to be an Autobot". >:oP

Never trust IMDB.

In the past, that site has posted more lies about the Transformers: Prime cartoon than one can count.

MicahaelBay.com has updated their homepage with an image of a Sonic RS Rally Car with the caption:

Another new Autobot? We know that Jack Reynor's character will be a race car driver, so maybe it just a human vehicle? Image mirrored below:

Pure fun? It should be Gears, for ultimate irony.

What an ugly ride. All it needs is a giant energy drink can on it's roof like those Red Bull promo cars.

So you want it to be covered in advertisements. Like it already is. Since it's a race car. And racecars are always covered in advertisements.

Both of them are dead. Despite being cut from Dark of the Moon, they were planned to be killed when Sentinel Prime went on his rampage in NEST HQ. This has been reflected in other DOTM merchandise as well.

I wish we'd actually seen them get killed in the movie. I know it was edited out, but it would have added some depth to their characters, Skids defending Bumblebee and Mudflap taking on Sentinel for killing his brother, even though Sentinel is 10 times his size.

A racing hatchback ? Thats stupid. Almost as stupid looking as one of these...

It's either Gears, or Smokescreen. Seeing as its an off road type vehicle, I am leaning more toward Smokescreen, as he can kick up excessive dust to blind the enemies.

That is a crappy hatchback, even as a rally car. If they were to use a modern Subaru wrx sti wagon, that would have atleast looked better, especially if it were for Smokescreen.

The sole purpose of a car having a "hatchback" is to easily load cargo. Using them for anything else is pointless. Sure you can supe up it's engine and race it, but it's still stupid. Just like over-inflating a soccer ball so it bounces and using it as a basketball. You COULD do it, but it would be stupid too.

Well hold on a sec, there are a lot of good rally cars that are hatchbacks, citroen, peugot, Subaru, Lancia. I definitely think the Sonic is ugly and sucks, but Rally racing is what I consider the most dangerous and edgy, raw form of racing, alongside Baja racing and the offroad sorts. However, those same hatchbacks used for anything else besides rally, like being practically small for narrow european town roads, is pretty boring and mundane. I love fast cars, and I would never want to drive a hatchback for any reason, but credit where it's due:
