We recently showed you the "leaked" photos of what could have been a production Volt on the set of Transformers 2. As our man Sam correctly noted in the comments following his post, the movie prop was exactly that - a fiberglass shell covering a pre-existing platform. What platform would you use to make a movie prop like this and who would you call to make it? We'll put it this way: Friends, this is the worlds only Saleen Volibu (or Malibolt if you prefer) in existence. Yes, that famous re-builder of Mustangs crafted a very production-Volt-like shell of fiberglass and lovingly slipped it over the gasoline-powered drivetrain of a Chevy Malibu. No word if it was even a Malibu hybrid or what, if any, kind of noise director Michael Bay has decided a Chevy Volt should make. Hit the jump for a bonus slow-motion annotated video of the Saleen Volibu.
