click above for more images of the Saleen Transformers Barricade Replica

We are big fans of the movie Transformers despite its faults, and not because we're fascinated with alien robots, but rather because it shows off some of our favorite cars in action. You can't get your very own Bumblebee yet with production of the Camaro still a year away, but you can buy this replica of Barricade being sold by McDonald Ford in Freeland, Michigan. This 2007 Mustang was built by Saleen to help promote the movie, and features the same police garb found on the movie car with a few changes. "To punish and enslave" has been changed to "Power in the hands of a few", and the 911 decal has been switched to a 411 promoting the Saleen web site. The light bar is also absent, probably to help prevent the vehicle from being mistaken for an actual police vehicle. That's probably a good thing, considering it's a felony to impersonate a police vehicle. The buyer also gets the standard Saleen add-ons including the body kit, upgraded interior, Racecraft suspension, and supercharged engine, so this marketing prop is more than just eye-candy. Pretty much the only thing it can't do is hunt down Sam Witwicky, grandson of Archibald Witwicky.

      It does look like something is missing.?.?.? Must be the light bar and/or the option to transform and kick ass.

      man you guys in the comment sections always cry about something. That thing is sweet and I would drive that around in a heartbeat scaring people on the road just by being parked on the side.

      Haha, that car is so worthless, it just completly fails as a replica.
      • 7 Years Ago
      No "To punish and enslave" no sale.

      I can foresee some pissed cops writing multiple tickets to the owner of this car.
        • 7 Years Ago
        Why? Nothing on the car is illegal (except the doors, and that's a CA only law).

        Unless you mean all the speeding tickets the owner is going to get from exploiting that S/C V8. :)

      Can't drive it in CA, they'll make you paint the doors black.

      Nothing on that Saleen replicates Barricade except for the paint scheme. Seriously Autoblog, have you not seen Transformers?

      I just saw one of these today (12/29) at the San Diego Auto Show. Stangpede, the local Stang club (natch) had one in their show display, next to the area where they were taking a bone stock '08 GT right off the dealer floor and tricking it out for The Fast and the Furious 4 movie. They intended to do the build in 6 hrs. So fwiw, the Mustang that's going to be in TFAF 4 is a maroon GT with a whole bunch of Saleen parts.
