Let's take a stroll into a parallel universe for a spell; one where Michael Bay doesn't soak his Transformers films in vats of teenage testosterone for a fortnight. What would that realm look like? Chances are the mighty Bumblebee wouldn't be a pre-production Chevrolet Camaro. After all, here in real-life, the average teenager is stuck driving something a little more pedestrian, even if he is saddled with saving the world. We're thinking something along the lines of the Chevrolet Cruze. Apparently, China is where this alternate universe manifests itself, because General Motors has just released a Bumblebee Edition Cruze in the People's Republic.

The car comes with a suitably yellow paint scheme with black accent stripes, as well as an Autobot insignia on the fenders, wheel caps and spread around the interior. Speaking of the insides, illuminated Transformers sill plates are standard fare as well. The standard 1.6-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is the only available powerplant.

For what it's worth, this isn't the world's first Bumblebee Cruze, though it is the first to use the proper yellow and black color scheme. Check out this somewhat less successful example for all the details.

      Looks more like a yellow jacket. No nectar / honey to be had from this insect.

      1.4 liter turbo, not 1.6 as written.

      Whats the point of releasing a Transformers themed car in China when the Chinese prohibited the movie to played in Chinese theaters? I doubt any potential buyer would understand the stylistic references...

        Do the Chinese even know Transformers, or even the Camaro exist?
