Another Camaro Transformers Edition Rolls Out

As a general rule, I avoid movies starring Shia Labeouf—with the exception of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull… for better or worse. Even so, as a car enthusiast, it is almost impossible to resist the temptation of Transformers. In light of that fact, Chevrolet saw fit to create a Transformers Special Edition Camaro back in 2010 and now plans to release a 2012 version. A bright yellow Camaro steals the show in the Transformers latest installment, Dark of the Moon. In conjunction with the release of this box-office summer hit, Chevy announced the specifics for the upcoming 2012 edition.

In case you’re wondering: is Shia Labeouf actually the lynchpin in convincing Americans to buy American products? The answer is yes, and he’s so much more. The 2010 Camaro was such a success that Mr. Labeouf’s boy-handling of a muscle car has propelled next year’s Transformers Edition Camaro to receive the international treatment. The 2012 Transformers Edition will be available in North America and other markets around the world, namely China, Japan, Europe, South America and the Middle East.

This latest Special Edition is offered only in Camaro’s top two trim levels—2LT and 2SS, with the RS Appearance Package. The vehicle’s design incorporates a Bumblebeesque stripe pattern, Rally Yellow Exterior paint and carbon-fiber weave rally stripes that travel from each side of the hood bulge to the front fascia and through the roof to the spoiler. Most importantly, the Autobot® shield can be found throughout the exterior and interior.

The 2012 Camaro Transformers Special Edition is available for order as of June 27, 2011. Production looks to start in mid or late August. While the Transformers Special Option Package starts at $3000, that price can go up with additional add-ons. Blackground effects cost $2500 installed and larger black 21-inch wheels add $5280.

In general, the latest Transformers Special Edition is one slick looking ride. If you can manage to avoid buying extra options, then $3000 might be well worth how unique this new Camaro looks. And, of course, you'll have to dig deep to determine if you have the moxy to tell people you drive a car themed after a bumblebee and driven by an unfortunate Hollywood icon.
