Like the Fast & Furious franchise, the Michael Bay-directed series of Transformers movies has become known as much for its bad acting as its impressive lineup of cars. As filming just started for Transformers 4, Bay's website has confirmed two new cars for the next installment as well as a makeover for everyone's favorite tractor trailer hero, Optimus Prime.

Joining the cast of T4 are a "race-inspired" Chevrolet Corvette Stingray and a Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse. While Bay's website did not supply names for either car, Bugatti is reporting on its Facebook page that the Veyron will join the Autobots. Speaking of the good guys, top Autobot Optimus Prime is getting an all-new body based on a Western Star with a gaudy appearance that was seemingly inspired by Trick My Truck – right down to the six smoke stacks and side pipes!

UPDATE: It seems that Michael Bay's website is releasing more new movie cars each day, and we'll be adding them to the gallery as they become available.

      Um, wasn't the original idea of Transformers was that they were "robots in disguise"? I hardly think a Corvette in clown colors, with a crap-tastic wing attached to the rear as camouflage. This movie franchise needs a serious reboot (like Batman or Star Trek has had) before it's too late. Excuse me Mr. James Cameron, are you busy?

        I'm with you... the lime green Corvette is like 'Merica's take on FF1's Eclipse: https://www.google.com/search?q=fast+furious+eclipse&tbm=isch&tbo=u&source=univ&sa=X&ei=b1KmUZKyN5KkqQHW-IHoAg&ved=0CC4QsAQ&biw=1107&bih=590

      The new cars and paint jobs can't help this franchise. The only thing that will save it is better writing and a better director. Bay only knows how to smash and blow stuff up. The first movie was the best of the series, but even then only the first half was truly good. Once they brought in that idiot from Sector 7 it went total camp and downhill quickly.

      "Veyron and C7 Corvette join cast of Transformers 4"... ...Unfortunately good storytelling and a proper writing have not. I still think these movies are filmed without a script.

      I would not throw FnF in the bad acting category...at least not when being compared to Transformers. FnF has much better storylines and acting, relatively speaking.

      you can take optimus look and just kill in with that thing cause a peterbilt is way better look then that wester star could ever be that and the way he looks now is the best way from being a cab over truck

      Aaaaaand it will suck. Seriously, if he isn't a Mack or a Peterbilt, he isn't Optimus Prime. That truck just looks ridiculous. Trick my Truck indeed. I didn't think it was possible to jump a semi over a shark but Michael Bay has done it.

        Just get this over with and reboot the franchise, preferrably with Orci and Kurtzman UNFILTERED, and writers from TF Prime.

          Though....Prime\'s shape is not as bad as him being a cold-blooded murderer. Cause anti-heroes who kill the bad guys are KEWL and EDGY!

      Must the cars be so damn gaudy? Damn. The C7 and Veyron sell themselves, no need to paint fast and the furious 1 all over them, get a clue production team.

          You know who else was that green color? Skids! (or was it Mudflap?) Wonder if Bay will troll us and bring back the Amos and Andy bots????

      Why is a menacing car like the veyron being portrayed as an autobot? And since when were non american cars put in that slot? The veyron is badass! It's mean! It belongs with the decipticons!

      Transformers Prime, that's where the actual story, character development, and intelligent dialogue live.

          I know, but based one the pace of the story it seems like things are just getting started, not sure how 10 episodes and movie can bring it to a close.

      The C7 needs to have that chrome strip in the front grille removed. I think it's actually an option. Regardless, Corvette needs the OPTION of AWD and DCT.

        Corvette with optional DCT? That would be great if it replaces the automatic or joins as a 3rd transmission option. Still a car best had with a manual gearbox. As for AWD, NO. Some cars are better off with AWD, the Corvette is not one of them.
