The other vehicle crossing the auction block, on the other hand, is from the most recent film. It is the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS “resto-mod” that was used to depict the character “Bumblebee” from the 2014 film, Transformers: Age of Extinction. The vehicle is currently owned by director Michael Bay. It is one incredible looking car, with an all-black paint scheme, save for the yellow spoiler and yellow band near the front.
Under the massive cowl induction hood is a Corvette-sourced GM LS3 V8 engine, sending power through a 6-speed manual. The interior is completely custom, and you can even see the custom yellow support bars. (We’re hesitant to suggest that those offer any major safety advantage. After all, when dealing with Michael Bay, assume everything is for show over substance.)
Both vehicles are being sold with no reserve, and estimates have not been offered. It should be noted that the “Optimus Prime” Peterbuilt is not street legal, might not be emissions-compliant in all 50 states, and is being sold simply as a display vehicle. That might hurt its price, but you can find out the true price when both vehicle cross the auction block later this month in Scottsdale.
