Remember the Transformers Special Edition Camaro that was announced back in June? Back then we only had mock ups to drool over, now thanks to the Camaro5 forums and Faces of GM we have images and video of the actual vehicle. The Transformers Special Edition Camaro is due to hit dealerships next month.

It’s the little details — like Cybertronian symbols spelling “Transformers” on the spoiler, Autobot logos on the wheel caps and front quarter panel and an awesome interior with black leather seats and bright yellow stitching — that give this Chevrolet extra attitude.

“When you see this car,” says Barry, “you’re not going to think it’s a car, you’re going to think it is Bumblebee… and you’re going to be looking around for the other Autobots. How cool is that?” Plus, if any Decepticons show up, you’ll be able to handle them

I love F bodies (Camaros and Firebirds) I have owned one or the other since I was 17. I'm 32 now. My Seibertron name ends with 98ss, which is what I was driving at the time I made my name. I just can't get into this one though. The stripes are to far apart the wing is very 2000 ricer and the black rims are to bland (the autobot symbol in the middle is a nice touch though)

The last Bumblebee looked great. I would have to pass on this one. :-(

I would rather have that black 1959 Impala sitting behind the Camaro if I had a choice of cars. Camaros are cool, but since there are so many of them around, they are kind of played out. How come Pontiac never made a special edition Jazz Solstice ???

I wondered that as well.

I guess they never really had time, as they have been shut down for the past few years. The latest model coup Solstice was a great looking car. They always reminded me of a Lotus Elise... =P~

Don't get me wrong, I'm keeping mine for probably the rest of my life, so selling isn't an issue. I just like that there are only around 1,500 of them and this is just adding to the total even though it's different.

Don't feel too bad...this version sucks by comparison. I mean, I'd take one if is was given to me, but I wouldn't even consider buying one of these. The other version, the thought at least crossed my mind at one point.

Sorry, but this Camaro ain't nothing special to me. Solely because on the way into work five days a week I see a specialized Camaro like none other. It's basically this one, but a dark grey w/black paint job, a very 'Knight Rider' Kit treatment on the hood with the back & forth red lighting, a Decepticon symbol on the back and the Barricade movie phrase "To punish & enslave.." motto on the sides. If I can snap some pics or vid of this thing at any time on the way into work I will, but not having an accident has always been more important to me. Been looking for a pic or two of this DFW-area thing online to share for ages, but no luck so far. THAT car is worlds better than this thing.

Why won't GM restart the manufacturing of Firebirds? It was always the better-looking of the 2, and if they could do this to Camaros, how awesome would new Firebirds look?

We've known about the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro for a while, but it now has an official product page on the Chevrolet website complete with a photo gallery highlighting it's special features. Click here to visit the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro page for the full run down.

Just as the "Transformers" movies have become a blockbuster series, the Camaro Transformers editions are now an iconic series in their own right. In conjunction with the summer 2011 release of "Transformers: Dark of the Moon," Chevrolet announced the 2012 Transformers Special Edition. Offered on the top two trim levels — 2LT and 2SS — the 2012 Transformers edition only improves upon the already immensely popular 2010 model.

The 2012 Transformers look starts with a stripe design consistent with the actual "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" Bumblebee model: Rally Yellow exterior paint with exclusive Carbon-Fiber-like Weave rally stripes that travel on each side of the hood bulge, roof, decklid and spoiler. In addition, this model also includes side gill decal stripes, a look borrowed from the iconic 2011 Camaro Convertible Indianapolis 500 Pace Car Replica.

Ah. I wish it had the ZL1 front end. Or maybe even the Jay Leno front end so it matched DotM Bumblebee. If it came as an option I'd try my best to buy it. Otherwise it looks fairly good. :KREMZEEK:

I have to agree 100% with you Protectus. The ZL1 front end just makes the overall appearance of the car look meaner.It gives it more flow. I just don't dig the round flood lights. I do like the Cybertron lettering that they have added for this years model. Nice touch.

Looks great, but AAAARRGGH! Why not give it the DOTM-correct ZL-1 nose?!! Come on Chevy, it's RIGHT THERE! :BANG_HEAD:

I do, however, wish the color were a little closer to the movie shade, I think this might be a little too pale. I hate the whole retro automotive styling trend but this is a beautiful car.

I agree, why not have the front like DOTM? That's what really sets 'bee apart.

The Solstice was a niche car. A tiny (I's 6'0" tall and couldn't get my knees under the steering column), underpowered, two-door, car isn't going to be high on many people's list to buy. Between that and the company going in the tank, I don't think special products like that were high on their list of priorities.

Someone asked why they don't make a new Firebird. The Camaro and Firebird were phased out because they were essentially the same car. And at the time, both of them were competing with the Corvette, performance-wise. GM wanted to cut something and the Vette wasn't going to get the axe.

They won't make a new Firebird now because it would be another V8 sports car crowding the, economy depleted, V8 sports car market. If you want to see a cool aftermarket Camaro done up like a Firebird, search for "Firebreather". Its awesome.

And I agree that the Firebird was always the better looking of the two. It was like GM took a Camaro and said "what little touches can we add to this to make it even cooler?"

I drive a 2000 Trans Am.

They don't make a new firebird now because GM discontinued the Pontiac line. Has nothing to do with releasing another V8 in the market with a market full of ecomemy cars. If the Pontiac name no longer exists, then you can't release a car with that brand igsignia.

Like you and others have said, i did like the firbird better. The concept firbird looked far better than the 2010' camaro concept.

The Camaro and Firebird were cancelled in 2002 for the reasons I stated before. Pontiac was still around then.

Obviously they don't release a Pontiac Firebird now because Pontiac doesn't exist. There were rumors of a Firebird-looking trim package option for the Camaro.

The Firebreather I mentioned before was actually an aftermarket car a movie studio did for some crappy movie. From the reviews I saw, the movie was terrible, but the car was awesome.

Yes, i understand why they cancelled the camaro and firebird and you are correct on the reasons (that, and also poor sales).
But that wasn't the orignal question. The question was why they didn't currently make the Firebird along side the new camaro. Not why was it cancelled in the first place.

I did catch the car you were talking about. It does look good and i heard the car was the only thing good about the movie. :lol:
