Crosshairs Corvette and the “Transformers” Crew Blaze Through England
In the real world, yet-to-be-unveiled cars are disguised by large patches of black cloth or plastic or with mesmerizing black-and-white swirled camo, but in the realm of the Transformers, the cars are the disguise. But just because they’re hiding in plain sight doesn’t mean they’re not getting attention. After all, the Autobots and Decepticons seem to be a little too proud to morph into boring cars. Nooooo, they had to go and pick some of the hottest rides on the planet like the C7 Corvette, the Lamborghini Centenario, the Chevy Camaro SS, and the Mercedes-Benz GT R.
Characters Crosshairs (‘Vette), Hot Rod (Lambo), Bumblebee (Camaro), and Drift (GT R) were recently spotted chasing each other around in Newcastle, England. And they even got up close and personal with the public crowd in what looks like a city center.

If you haven’t heard already, director Michael Bay and his crew are filming more scenes for the upcoming movie Transformers: The Last Knight, which is set to come out in the summer of 2017.
The Stingray, of course, isn’t a normal dealer car. It’s been dressed up with a bull horn spoiler, black and green paint scheme, a new hood, side skirts, and a different front splitter. According to an older Bay tweet, Crosshairs typically works solo, so it should be interesting to see how he does in a group like this.
Here’s a closer look:
