Chevy Camaro Bumblebee Returns to Showrooms
The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro is about to get 'Transformed' again. The Bumblebee-inspired Special Edition of the sportscar hits showrooms in September.
To celebrate the release of the third film in the movie series, Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Chevrolet will offer a Camaro Coupe in the United States, Canada, China, Japan, Europe, South America, and the Middle East.
“The Transformers franchise has helped introduce Camaro and Chevrolet to a whole new generation of fans,” said Rick Scheidt, vice president of Chevrolet marketing. “Its role in the films helped make the Camaro the best-selling sports car in America, and one of the best-known cars of any kind around the world.”
Bumblebee isn't a stranger to dealerships; this is the third time Chevy has designed the Autobot - in 2007 and 2009, with the releases of the previous two films.
The 2012 Transformers Special Edition will be offered as a $3,000 package on 2LT and 2SS Camaro Coupes with Rally Yellow paint. In addition to the content offered in the popular RS appearance package, the Transformers edition will feature black rally stripes that stretch over the hood, roof, decklid and unique high-wing rear spoiler; 20-inch, black-painted wheels wrapped in high-performance summer tires; and Autobot Shield logos on the center caps and front quarter panels.
Inside, the Transformers Camaro has a black leather interior accented with yellow stitching on the instrument panel, center console, armrests and seats. Autobot Shield logos are embroidered on the front headrests, as well as the center console lid.
Two dealer-installed options are also available: exclusive, 21-inch, black-painted wheels and a black ground-effects package.
Customers may begin ordering the 2012 Transformers Special Edition Camaro in July, with vehicles arriving at dealers in the U.S. and Canada in September.
