Veyron and Corvette - Autobots in the future Transformers 4
Mot of you expected the 2011 "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" to be the last movie of the "Transformers" franchise. After all it ended with Michael Bay reigning as robot king, but it looks like the blockbuster director decided to continue the series with an yet unnamed "Transformers 4" series.
The new Transformers 4 series will start shooting this summer and it looks like it will offer quite an impressive amount of surprises. The first of these series of surprises will be the addition of two new Autobots: a 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse and a C7 Corvette Stingray. No other details were released on the two vehicles, but rumors suggest that the Veyron will be the new vehicle form for Drift and the new C7 Corvette Stingray will be the new form of Slingshot.
Next to the new Autobots, Transforms 4 will also bring redesign for Optimus Prime and a new addition to the cast: Mark Wahlberg, who agreed to join the franchise while working with Michael Bay on "Pain & Gain."
The new Transformers 4 will be released on June 29, 2014.
