Four Chevrolet Camaros featured in Transformers films will hit the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale later this month. They will be sold together as a group in favor of Operation Homefront, a nonprofit that helps military families.
The first Camaro played Bumblebee in the original Transformers movie in 2007. This was two years before the fifth generation model would go on sale, so the car manufacturer built this Camaro as a one-time running concept just for the movie. Later it was changed to star in the second film, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen .
A new Camaro was built for the next movie titled Transformers: Dark of the Moon . It was an SS model that had darker yellow exterior and darker wheels than the previous car, as well as wider stripes. For the following films, Transformers: Age of Extinction Chevrolet created the most aggressive Bumblebee Camaro, a 2013 model with slim headlights that foreshadowed the look of the sixth gene model. Then, Chevrolet would continue to make a 2016 model for Transformers: The Last Knight which appears to preview the 2019 update. All four Camaros have a V-8 engine, automatic transmission and rear wheel drive.
They are sold on a scrap title, and unfortunately they are not street-legal. But for Transformers fans there may be no better memorial. And they will definitely look good in your garage.
The four Camaros will beat the auction block on January 19 at Barrett's Jackson's Annual Scottsdale Auction.
