    Got this email from Chevy. Apparently, we can now own the ROTF BB before the movie even comes out. Not sure if it's even news, but sort of TF related

    All New Camaro, In Dealerships Now
    Michael,

    "The look is there. The performance is there. The value is there. And, oh yes, so is the 'wow.'" That's what Motor Trend magazine had to say after driving the all new Camaro. Now it's your turn to see for yourself how awe-inspiring design, performance and efficiency can coexist — perfectly.


    NEXT STOP: YOUR GARAGE.
    With production in high gear, we're celebrating the arrival of the all new Camaro in Chevy dealerships across the country. Stop by your local Chevy dealer to see firsthand how Camaro fuses confidence with unmistakable soul. Inspect the taut, athletic lines. Sit inside the meticulously designed cockpit. You can even kick the tires — but be warned: they may kick back.
    LOCATE YOUR CHEVY DEALER

    304 HP. 29 MPG.*
    The all new Camaro delivers impressive highway fuel economy without sacrificing performance. Its 3.6L V6 turns out 304 hp and an EPA estimated 29 MPG highway. The 6.2L V8 with its manual transmission offers 426 hp and an EPA estimated 24 MPG highway. This engine equipped with the available TAPshift automatic transmission with Active Fuel Management turns out 400 hp and an EPA estimated 25 MPG highway. To hear the roar of the Camaro engines, see our Camaro videos.

    Wow... that's pretty impressive. I wonder what the Asterisk disclaimer is?

    Still... I'm much more impressed with pedal shifters finally being available in the new Ralliart Lancer.

    It's a crime. How do they not have a "Bumblebee" option?

    I could have swore it was supposed to be a package deal, but I heard or read that long ago when it was originally supposed to come out and got pushed back many times over.

    Just wanted to point out that ROTF BB has some sort of body kit that seems to be unavailable from dealerships at the moment.

    Spending all this money on two films and not having a "bumblebee" ready to go is idiotic

    What do you mean 'old?' The concept is being produced, with minor changes. The current Camaro used in the TF movies is based upon a still in limbo Camaro Z28 package.

    What does a car like that generally cost new? $40,000? I'm from New York and I don't drive so I don't really know these things.

    According to my latest issue of Motor Trend, If you buy every package available, a more expensive SS model will bring you to the $33,000 range. If you want the regular flavor without the extra horses, then it should be much cheaper. Mid $20,000.

    They had a red one at my local dealership about 2 weeks ago.

    It was beautiful. It's since been moved to another dealership.

    I've only seen two, and both not in dealerships. One black at the Providence Auto Show, and a blue one at Test Track, Epcot.

    I am waiting for the 550 horsepower Z28 that ROTF Bumblebee is supposed to look like. My old SS is at 700horsepower now, and I am not stepping down to a low power car.
