General Motors may have been forced to slash its advertising budget, dropping support for the upcoming film Transformers 2: Revenge of the Fallen in the process, but that doesnâ€™t mean Trans-fans are going to have to miss out entirely.
In fact, this news will probably put smiles on more than a few dials.
If the whispers around Detroit are to be believed, the General will offer a Bumblebee appearance package for the Camaro coupe, scheduled to coincide with the release of the film.
Autobot fans will be able to show their allegiance with a revised styling package incorporating the huge blacked-out front intakes and the stripe package of the big-screen star.
Sadly, the Bumblebee Camaro wonâ€™t offer the ability to turn itself into a 20 foot tall, intergalactic warrior, but thatâ€™s probably for the best: who knows if the occupants would surviveâ€¦
Near enough is good enough though and you can bet plenty of people will want to get their hands on one.
If youâ€™re interested, the line starts behind me.
