We’ll have to wait until June 2017 to see these cars try to annihilate each other

The Transformers movie franchise may have dipped in quality over its past few instalments, but one thing hasn’t changed about this mega blockbuster franchise: the cars are still awesome. That’s been the case since the first movie and from the looks of it, the fifth movie, titled The Last Knight will be no different.

The video you’re going to see here takes a good look at some of the vehicles that will be appearing in the movie. Obviously, the first attraction here is Optimus Prime and the custom Western Star 5700 XE semi truck that he’ll once again be appearing in. The exterior of the semi still looks incredible and the flaming blue and red paint job once again captures the coolness of the Autobot’s leader. We do get a nice look at the interior of the truck, which looks pretty standard except for the monitors on the side that are presumably there for production purposes.

From there, we get to see a custom Chevrolet Camaro and Ford Mustang police pursuit car, or in Transformers lingo, Bumblebee and Barricade. The two robots haven’t put on a proper robotic tussle since the first movie so seeing them together here in their new digs kind of makes me wish that we’ll get to see that long-awaited second round in the fifth movie. Another interesting vehicle here is Onslaught, the leader of the Decepticon group the Combaticons. He’s also using a Western Star semi, only it’s a 4900 SF semi. It’s bigger than Optimus Prime and proudly displays three Autobot “kills” on the rear section. Guess we’re headed for a semi-truck throw down between these two robotic titans. Last but certainly not least is the custom Mercedes-AMG GT R that Autobot Drift will be using. We last saw him in Transformers 4: Age Of Extinction as a Bugatti Veyron so while the AMG GT R is an impressive car in its own right, it does kind of feel like a downgrade compared to the Veyron.

Transformers 5: The Last Knight is scheduled to hit cinemas in June 2017.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More
