Muscle cars, trucks, and… a VW Beetle?
All four Bumblebee Camaros from Transformers can join your beehive
Transformers movie enthusiasts and Camaro enthusiasts will cross paths underneath the Barrett-Jackson tent in Scottsdale next week, as four Camaros used in four different Transformers films will be sold as one lot. This is your chance to turn your garage into a beehive with a single bid.
The four movie cars were used in the first five Transformers films, so model years range from 2010–16. All are equipped with V-8 engines and automatic transmissions, and, of course, a coat Rally Yellow paint. Each is uniquely detailed based on the movie it appeared in, with subtle changes like wheels and accent details.
Bumblebee has since shed its Chevy skin and takes the shape of a Volkswagen Beetle in the latest installment, Bumblebee. Many remember Bumblebee as a Camaro, specifically as the 2010 Camaro that brought life to the Autobot in the first two films—Transformers and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. In addition to the original star car, there is another 2010 from Transformers: Dark of the Moon, a 2013 from Transformers: Age of Extinction, and a 2016 from the filming of Transformers: The Last Knight.
The lucky winning bidder will get all four famous movie muscle cars for display (and display only); the cars are being sold with scrap titles and won’t be allowed to become street legal in the future.
The sale of this Bumblebee hive will also go to a good cause. Barrett-Jackson says the full hammer price will benefit Operation Homefront, a national nonprofit whose mission is “to build strong, stable, and secure military families so they can thrive—not simply struggle to get by—in the communities they have worked so hard to protect.”
