‘Transformers’ Director Michael Bay is Selling His 1967 Bumblebee Camaro

The custom muscle car from ‘Transformers: Age of Extinction’ is going up for auction.


The badass ’67 Camaro that appeared as the shape-shifting Bumblebee character in Transformers: Age of Extinction is being auctioned off by its current owner, director Michael Bay. 

You can bid on Bay’s one-of-a-kind muscle car at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona from Jan. 23-31. And the good news is, you don’t even have to sit through the critically-panned movie to place an offer on it. 

Bay’s Camaro—which comes autographed by the blockbuster action director—features a fuel-injected Corvette LS3 small block V8 engine, 6-speed manual transmission, custom lowered and stiffened suspension, monster Wilwood brakes, and a touchscreen navigation stereo system. 

It also boasts hideaway headlight covers with custom Halo LED yellow lights beneath them, RideTech “TigerCage” roll cage, custom-made carbon-fiber fender flares and front splitter, Auto Meter Cobalt gauges, flush-mounted door handles and seats from a late-model Camaro.

The top estimated value for a ’67 Camaro is about $37,000, but Bay’s Transformers car will likely fetch a six-figure price, in case you’re interested.
