The Cars of “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon”
Remember when we first heard the news that Megan Fox wouldn’t appear in “Transformers 3”? There was mass devastation across the robot-controlled world. I, on the other hand, saw opportunity and looked forward to a new star gracing the big screen.
At the time, rumors were floating that the new star might be a hot little Italian number: the Ferrari 458 Italia.
There was much rejoicing.
But did the rumor hold? Will the 458 grace the screen? If so, is it Autobot or Decepticon?
Keep reading for a look at the cars of “Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon.”
Optimus Prime: Still a blue Peterbilt, and still as awesome as ever.
Bumblebee: Now a 5th-generation Chevrolet Camaro. Sam’s guardian and protector can be nothing else!
Ironhide: GMC Topkick. GM doesn’t make ’em anymore, but no one was brave enough to tell Ironhide.
Ratchet: Hummer H2, all dressed up in green-and-white search-and-rescue form.
Mirage: Ferrari 458 Italia. Yes! Want to bet they meet him (or her!?) in Italy?
Leadfoot, Topspin and Roadbuster: A series of NASCAR-inspired armored attack cars. Yeah, it reeks of blatant product placement, but at this point, who really cares?
Megatron: The leader of the Decepticons comes back as an armored and rusted fuel truck.
Soundwave: Mercedes-Benz SLS AMG. I hope the Ferrari kicks his butt!
Carter, Crowbar and Hatchette: A trio of blacked-out Chevrolet Suburbans sure to fall prey to a vengeful Optimus Prime.
