Just as the Chevrolet Camaro in Transformers 2 gave hints to the looks of the ZL1 model, the Bumblebee model shaped for Transformers 4 appears to be teasing us with some design cues of the all-new 2016 Camaro. This is based on the recent crop of spy photos that have been circulating around the internet lately, where we can see gilled hood extractors from underneath all of that camouflage. And to further add to the plot, movie director Michael Bay wanted the 2015 Corvette Z06 in his latest summer blockbuster, but had to settle for the modified SEMA car because GM wasn’t going to risk the supercar leaking to the public during filming.
These hood extractors have a very similar pattern to the Transformers 4 Camaro. Though overall, the shape of the 2016 Camaro seems to adhere closely to the looks of the fifth-gen model. Except it will be slimmer, lower, smaller, and lighter thanks to the utilization of the Alpha platform. And it looks like the rear decklid is shrinking, too. On top of it all, Small Block enthusiasts will enjoy the fact that there’s no sign of a twin-turbo V6 replacing the tried-and-true setup of a naturally breathing V8. We hope to learn more as the development of the 2016 Camaro continues.
