Even though it might be a bit geeky to drive around in an Autobot character, the fact that the 2012 Camaro Transformers Special Edition will be offered as extra package for just $3,000 extra makes it a sweet deal. Available on both the 2LT and 2SS Camaro Coupes, the kit brings the striking yellow paint, black rally stripes that cover the hood, roof, decklid and the unique rear spoiler.
There’s also a few Autobot badges here and there, hinting that the Camaro is “more than meets the eye.” The wheels come as standard in a 20-inch size and have the same logo in the center caps. As an optional extra, GM will offer 21-inch, black-painted wheels and a black ground-effects package.
“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.”
Inside, there’s a black leather interior for your bottom to enjoy, plus 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.
Order books for the 2012 Camaro Transformers Special Edition will open in July, with the models to arrive in North America showrooms in September.
