2017 Bumblebee Chevrolet Camaro

True to form, Bumblebee returns to Transformer 5 as the latest Chevrolet Camaro, having started its silver screen life as a beat-up, yellow and black 1977 Camaro. Since the Camaro was redeveloped for the 2016 model year, it only makes sense that the Bumblebee character follows suit, too.

In its most powerful guise, the Camaro ZL1 is powered by a supercharged 6.2-litre V8 producing 640 hp and 868 Nm of torque.

Those with keen sights will have spotted the exterior embellishments which set Bumblebee apart from the factory standard model; black front splitter, matte black hood finishing, black side skirts and rear wing, as well as the requisite Transformers logo on each of its flanks.

The movie franchise has been a General Motors showcase of sorts, with a Chevrolet Sonic and a Pontiac Solstice appearing at various points. Cast-wise, Mark Wahlberg returns as Cade Yeager, while Josh Duhamel reprises his role as William Lennox. Transformers: The Last Knight is set to reach theatres in June 2017.
