Click above for high-res gallery of the Transformers cars from GM

In addition to the Corvette Centennial Concept, Chevrolet showed three more AUTOBOTS at the Chicago Auto Show that will make their big screen debuts in the upcoming Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen live action flick, along with one that we're all very familiar with. While we've seen images of the Chevy Volt on the Transformers set, this is the first time that GM has displayed the vehicle for public consumption. This is no show car, as the vehicle on display showed significant wear and tear from its day job. In robot form, the Volt will be known as Jolt, which makes us hope for some shocking footage this summer.

The other two vehicles were the Chevy Beat, which will be called the Spark when it enters production soon, and the Chevy Trax. These two vehicles will be known as Skids and Mudflap respectively, and we're hearing these two 'bots could provide a bit of comic relief to what will otherwise be a sobering storyline. Lastly, we have the yellow and black Camaro, aka Bumblebee, which was represented in both car form and in 17-foot-tall robot form. See the whole lot of 'em in our high-res live gallery below.

      So, who is the Corvette concept supposed to be?
      • 5 Years Ago
      That Volt is sexy, much nicer than the crap GM is going to release.
        • 5 Years Ago
        You're retarded. The only differences between Jolt Volt and the real one is the larger wheels, wider tires, slightly different headlights, and the wide body to accommodate said wheels and tires. If you want the look you could probably get it done.

        Yes the widebody/wider tires/larger wheels makes it look way better but the actual car is hardly crap.

        I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure this "Jolt Volt" is based on the production Volt. The only big difference I see with this Volt, and the production Volt, is the bigger wheels, and maybe a few very minute details.

        I'd have to see them side by side though.

      Anyone have any idea whether they'll be carting these around the country to other, lesser auto shows? (I'll be heading to the Dallas Auto Show next week...)

      is it me or do the headlights on the Volt look exactly like the ones on the new Taurus???
        • 5 Years Ago
        Could be same supplier
        • 5 Years Ago
        to me the headlights look like nascar style headlight stickers... is it just the pics?
        • 5 Years Ago
        They do seem to be VERY similar.

      The vette will be "Sideswipe". Do a search for the robot version. The crazy rear end makes a mean chest. There is truly an impressive posse of Chevys in the flick, I mean with GM having so many brands and all, to have such a strong and diverse group as this in one brand isn't too shabby. Good things to come for Chevy?
      • 5 Years Ago
      The Volt doesn't look nearly so dorky in blue...
      • 5 Years Ago
      I just wish all the cars would be all original makes and models. Or atleast close to the originals. Oh well. Transformers was still a good movie even though it was a GM love fest. (Though I do know the bad guy was an unbadged Mustang).
        • 5 Years Ago
        Unbadged? It said Saleen on the back of it.
      • 5 Years Ago
      Still sad they didn't show these guys here in Detroit last month, but oh well. Maybe they'll bring the cars around for some other show/promo later on. I'm anxious to see them all ('cept the Beat and Trax since I've already seen those) in person, especially that Corvette (which is more like a fun random concept car than an actual 'Vette).
      • 5 Years Ago
      I hated Transformers ,but, I loved the cars! I guess I have to sit through another one because the cars look to be way cool again!

      Damn!
        • 5 Years Ago
        Or you can spend the money on Auto Show

        which will allow you to

        See cars only
        See them better
        Seat and touch
        See models (no touching, unless you are a REAL player)

      GM really got a good deal with Transformers and the Camaro and the others are gonna end up being such cool cars.

      However, I do wonder how Chrysler are going to make Terminator work for them.
