New Seibertron member MGRead has brought to our attention the appearance of a new vehicle that has shown up on the Chicago set of Transformers 3. A large Red Jeep 4x4 that looks more suited to off-road combat than urban warfare was driven by on a large flatbed leaving the scene of some mayhem typical of a Michael Bay scene. We know absolutely nothing about this car, or if it's even in the movie at this point, for all we know it could be Michael Bay's golf cart. However it certainly doesn't belong in downtown Chicago on a normal day.

So who do you think it is? Feel free to discuss it here!

Watch the youtube clip here or watch it below.

Hound. 8-} My truck's bigger than that & it stays downtown all the time. :P

seriously I would not be suprised if it was Windbreaker. That's the way Bay thinks.

First thing I thought of when I seen it was Dirtboss. Interesting looking vehicle though. Could just as easily be Rollbar, Trailbreaker, or Beachcomber.

I hope it NOT Hound, if it is then why can't they ever get colors right on the characters? Hound has to be green, and should be an army Jeep, not that monster truck wannabe. What happened to Bay saying it was hard to use red? Now we have two vehicles in this film that are mostly all red.

Knowing Bay, this will probably be Perceptor or someone else completely chosen at random name-wise, like Grimlock.

originally bay said he hated filming red and that's why only prime originally was red. Then we got red rampage. And now possibly two new red tfs.... so while I'm not complaining about tf3 I am bummed that now there really was no good reason for ironhide and sideswipe to not be red :BOOM:

It's Tantrum, the Predacon as he was in the Binaltech/Alternators line.

I hope this is indeed a TF. That jacked-up Jeep would make for a sweet-looking Voyager-class alt mode.

My thoughts on who it is...I don't know!

While I would like any Jeep to be Hound (regardless of Bay's colour-switching habits) I don't think this particular vehicle's set-up really suits Hound at all. If he were a military Jeep, then that would be far more suitable. Hell, even if he were a Humvee, or a little Dune Buggy (think Dune Runner) I'd be happy.

But yeah, add my voice to those who've already said "WTF is with all the red?" They avoid it in the first movie because it's hard to film, meaning Ironhide gets a colour swap (I never really disliked Optimus' new look) and then in the second one they did the same thing to Sideswipe... and now they are adding two red vehicles... :BANG_HEAD:

Well, my guess for this Jeep is still Hound, even if it's way off. Second guess would be Trailbreaker, so it's as though he and Ironhide swapped paintjobs. Just for the lulz, I think the Ferrari will be Tracks, because:

1) Red is the polar opposite of blue (or so says I.)
2) They made Sideswipe (originally an Italian car) into an American car, so it makes 'sense' that they would make Tracks (originally an American car) into an Italian one. BALANCE! :KREMZEEK:

Is that ACTUALLY the same jeep? Because is says Rollbar right on the side there. May be a silly question to ask as the picture was obviously photoshopped somehow, but still.
