2010 Chevrolet Camaro as Bumblebee - Click above for a high-res image gallery

Diehard Transformers fans take note: Chevrolet is reportedly planning to launch a limited edition Bumblebee Camaro to capitalize on the upcoming flick, Revenge of the Fallen. We're sure none of you saw that coming, right? The car, available with either V6 or V8 power, will be available for order June 1 and the first cars are scheduled to roll down the assembly line on the 24th of that month, which, not coincidentally, is the same day the movie is scheduled for released in the U.S.

Unfortunately, we don't have any images of the new Bumblebee package to show off or pricing information, but rumor has it that the car will be painted up in the same Rally Yellow that's available on other Camaros – importantly, that's not the darker color that's featured in the movies – set off by black racing stripes, of course. To help set the Bumblebee edition apart from its siblings, GM will equip the car with Transformers badging on the wheel centers and sill plates along with an embroidered emblem on the console inside. Thanks for the tip, Jay!

      There should be no v6 option, it should be SS only.
      Why the hell would someone want to pay extra to get an SS bumblebee only to have it confused with a v6? It's like making a v6 cobra mustang.

      I like the idea, not sure if i would drive one.
      Scratch that, i would drive one, not sure i'd pay more to get one.

        As stupid as GMs emphasis on the Camaro is, this V6 Camaro will stomp all over a 1989 Camaro Z28 IROC equipped with the 5.7L V8.

        What's sad is that the IROC had more displacement than the V6, but it only runs a 14-second 1/4 mile, in the same territory as the new V6 Camaro.

      This is pathetic. If you're going to do a brand job, don't half-ass it.

      GM hasn't learned anything, it seems.

      Raise your hand if you genuinely didn't see this coming.

        G-D Damn PJ hit it on the head. I definately never thought they would do this...I guess at this point as a Detroit Car company...your going to try and sell every idea to make as much profit as possible...I think this is just the beginning

        +1...

        Memo to GM Marketing: 12-to-15-year-olds don't buy cars.

      Irrelevant.

      I hope this sells better than the "Tow-mater" version of the Siverado did.

      Sweet!

      although it's no surprise coming from me...

      does it have autobot logos on it instead of chevy logos? that would be awesome.
      • 5 Years Ago
      I see nothing wrong with this. At all

      If it doesn't actually transform into a kickass robot, it's going to be an epic fail.

      GM does what it does best. Capitalize from the gullible public.
      • 5 Years Ago
      There's no such thing as a 2010 Camaro, it's a media conspiracy to keep car magazines in business.

      Yup, here it is. The chips are down. Sales have slumped. Bankruptcy is looming on the horizon. The general public is eagerly awaiting fuel-efficient vehicles.

      The solution?

      Build a special edition Camaro, of course! That will bring sales back in a heartbeat!

      (FWIW, I'm aware that this is GMs best selling model at the moment, so when fuel prices rise again, I can look at all the unsold Camaros in the lot and say, "Gee, GM, looks like maybe you shouldn't have crushed the EV1, eh?")
