Before it was in the showroom, the latest generation of Camaro was on the big screen. In 2007, Chevrolet Camaro made its film debut as Bumblebee, the heroic Autobot in the first of Michael Bay’s epic “Transformers” series. As we fast-forward seven years later, we see Bumblebee returning to the big screen in “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”
This time around, the Chevrolet Camaro will have two starring roles: first as a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS and, later on, as a 2014 Concept Camaro. In supporting roles are Chevrolet Corvette, Trax and Sonic RS, all of which are making their screen debuts. We’ll meet Crosshairs, an Autobot paratrooper who transforms into a green 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray, and we’ll see Trax and Sonic RS, who prove they’re up for anything to help save the day.
Over the years, Chevrolet Camaro has captured the imagination of young and old. In fact, Chevrolet offers enthusiasts 14 distinct performance-car models, including nine Camaro models and the SS performance sedan. The Camaro line up has it all: the 323-HP V6 powered coupe and convertible, the SS coupe and convertible offering Chevrolet’s legendary small-block V8, and the Camaro ZL1 coupe and convertible. The ZL1 is equally at home on the racetrack, the drag strip, or daily commuting and features a supercharged 6.2L V8 with 580 HP and 556 lb.-ft. of torque, making it the most powerful Camaro ever. Chevrolet also offers four Corvette models delivering up to 650 HP.
Chevrolet has been America’s best-selling performance brand for four consecutive years, powering both movies and moviegoers everywhere.
“BUMBLEBEE, IS THAT YOU?”
Bumblebee will also be coming to small screens everywhere in a TV spot called, “Whisper.” A small boy who’s a big fan of Transformers is watching the movie on a tablet in his front yard when he sees his neighbor pull into the driveway in a new Chevrolet Camaro. Is it Bumblebee? See for yourself.
