The upcoming live-action Transformers movie will feature a matchup with which most Autoblog readers are intimately familiar: Camaro versus Mustang. A bright orange Chevy Camaro Concept that's more than meets the eye will play the good-natured Transformer named Bumblebee, which has traditionally been portrayed by the Volkswagen Beetle. Meanwhile, a Decepticon named Brawl that reportedly "jacks-up poor Bumblebee" is being played by the Ford Mustang.
Many of us have already taken in Motor Trend’s May issue cover story in which an impatient MT staff pits Chevy’s Camaro Concept, not due out until 2008 if at all, against the Ford Mustang in a digital duel. The comparison occurred in a virtual world created by a simulation program called CarSim. While data on the actually-in-existence Ford Mustang was easy to come by, editors from MT has to consult with GM to cull information on the 2009 Camaro to use in the simulation.
