Ferrari 458 Italia in Transformers 3

Written by Darren 'Starscream' Jamieson on March 23, 2010 | News,Transformers 3 (2011) |

Fans of the original G1 Transformers, and of cars in general, will have noticed that the live action Transformers movies of Michael Bay have been a little too heavy with American cars. In Revenge of the Fallen for example, Sideswipe (who should have been a Lamborghini) instead took the form of a Corvette Stingray for his chase with the Audi R8 (and quite frankly, a Corvette would have never made those corners against the Audi).

In the first Transformers film, Jazz (originally a Porsche 935 in Transformers G1) was instead turned into a Pontiac Solstice. It’s a tragedy where inferior American cars replace the quality European cars that made the Autobots famous.

Now, at long last, there’s going to be a serious European car in Transformers 3 – the Ferrari 458 Italia. The Ferrari 458 Italia is a 4.5ltr V8 and is the replacement for the F430.

This comes from the man himself, Michael Bay.

Bay wrote on his blog:

I also was at a Ferrari charity event this week raising money for a hospital being built by Ferrari in Haiti. I announced that night the newest Autobot to join Transformers: the Ferrari 458 Italia.
