Michael Bay Selling His 1967 Camaro SS Bumblebee at Barrett-Jackson
The distinctive Resto-Mod was built for Transformers: Age of Extinction, the Hollywood blockbuster that earned Bay his second Golden Raspberry Award for Worst Director, after which it became the notorious auteur’s personal vehicle.
According to the listing, the classic Camaro features an LS2 fuel-injected Corvette engine, 6-speed overdrive transmission, custom suspension, mini tubs, Wilwood brakes plus added stunt extra caliper, 9-inch Ford rear end, touchscreen navigation stereo system, custom three-piece racing wheels, Nitto low-profile tires, hideaway headlights, custom Halo LED yellow headlights, yellow Ridetech “TigerCage” rollcage, custom-made carbon-fiber fender flares and front splitter, power hood latch, satin black paint with high-gloss yellow accents, carbon-fiber engine covers, Auto Meter Cobalt gauges, system kill within glovebox, Eddie Motorsport hood hinges, custom billet core support bars with yellow accents, smoothed firewall, hydraulic braking assist, Audi flush-mount door handles, and late-model Camaro seats.
There is also Transformers badging all over the vehicle, and it’s even been autographed by Michael Bay himself, so there’s no mistaking which bloated film franchise birthed this muscle car.
