You’ve already seen the new Bumblebee, which will appear in Transformers 5: The Last Knight. Now it’s time to switch our focus to the bad guys in the upcoming movie, and we here’s an old favourite – Barricade.

Fans of the film franchise will recall Barricade from the first instalment, where he attacks Sam before getting into a duel with Bumblebee. Back in 2007, the Decepticon was disguised as a police-issue Ford Mustang. For the 2017 flick, the iconic pony car will continue to make an appearance, albeit as the latest model.

Actor Josh Duhamel who plays Lt. Colonel William Lennox in the movie, recently tweeted this image on his official Twitter page, revealing what the new Barricade will look like when transformed into vehicle mode.

Imposing, isn’t it? The Mustang here gets a full body kit, accompanied by massive hood scopes, a rear wing, bull bars and siren lights. Police livery is part of the getup as it should, and we would love to see a close-up of famous tagline, “to punish and enslave,” which is located at the rear fenders (remember those?).

On the mention of the Mustang, the model recently made its entry into Malaysia in two guises – a 2.3 litre EcoBoost and a 5.0 litre V8. The former provides 317 PS and 432 Nm of torque, while the latter churns out a more tempting 416 PS and 530 Nm.
