Looking back, the cars from the previous trilogy were more defined and spread out in design as well as seemed more distinct of character, where as three of the new cars revealed for this film kinda look alike too much for my taste. (Not saying several cars from the previous trilogy didn't look alike, just that they did a good job at keeping them look different enough.)
You're not the only one who isn't overly impressed with this move towards high-end "super cars". I'd rather see a selection of average or slightly above average vehicles used, something that makes the whole "Robots in Disguise" premise actually plausible. The over-priced, over-hyped, impossible to attain cars aren't disguises, they're a rich mans way of compensating for a lack of personality or penis (or both) and I think Bay is showing off that fact brilliantly by overloading this film with these vehicles. These cars are impractical to say the very least unless their purpose is to make me even more appreciative of the classic Camaro form that 'Bee is using in which case it's working perfectly. I hate to say it but so far "Bee, Hound and Grimlock are the only 3 thoroughly rugged vehicles on the entire set. Even the black rally rigs are just fiberglass shells over a roll cage. I get the feeling that this trend of flashiness is only going to get worse in this film.
