Chevrolet scored a whole new generation of Camaro fans by lending the fifth-generation Camaro to become the iconic “Bumblebee” in the Transformers series of movies. Though, the love isn’t all for the modern interpretation of Bumblebee.
Built for use in the fourth installment of the Transformers series, the 1967 Bumblebee Chevrolet Camaro crossed the auction block at Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale, where it fetched a lofty $167,000.
The 1967 Camaro featured a resto-mod appearance with a carbon-fiber wide body kit, 6.2-liter LS3 V8 and numerous other modern touches to the classic pony car.
The interior features similar modern appointments, even including late-model Camaro seats and Auto Meter Cobalt gauges. The 1967 Camaro was also autographed by its former owner, one Michael Bay.
It’s easy to see plenty of love was poured into this build for its silver screen appearance, and it has plenty of go for the new owner to really enjoy it.
