UPDATE 2: First official look at Autobot vehicles from Michael Bay’s Transformers 4 (now with added Bumblebee)

May 31st, 2013 by Edwin Torres Jr Comments


As production begins in Monument Valley near the border of Arizona and Utah, Yahoo Movies has released two official images of Autobot vehicles – a C7 Corvette Stingray and a 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse. No word as of yet which Autobots they will be.

Also according to The Wrap, there is another addition to the cast. Comedian-turned-actor T.J. Miller (She’s Out Of My League) has joined the upcoming movie. He will play “a blue-collar mechanic who is a longtime friend of Mark Wahlberg’s character.”

Wahlberg leads a brand new cast which includes Jack Reynor, Nicola Peltz, Stanley Tucci, Sophia Myles, Li Bingbing, Peter Cullen and Kelsey Grammar. It has been reported that Tyrese Gibson and Josh Duhamel may reprise their roles from the first three movies in minor appearances.

Get ready to roll out on June 27th, 2014.


According to a source of Jo Blo’s, the C7 Corvette Stingray is named “Slingshot” and the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is named “Drift”. There are Autobots with those names from Transformer’s first generation of characters but it isn’t completely clear if they will be the same characters or just share the same names.

Drift was a Decepticon turned Autobot, who was a Japanese Drift car. Slingshot was an VTOl jet.


Bumblee gets a new look as, according to Michael Bay, “a highly modified, vintage 1967 Camaro SS” below.

And of course a “completely upgraded, custom-built Optimus Prime from Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America).”
