2012 Chevy Camaro Transformers Bumble Bee Edition
Watch in 1080p! The Chevy Camaro done Bumble Bee style! In a unique tie-in with this week's opening of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, Chevrolet is rolling out the Transformers Special Edition as a $3,000 package on the 2012 Camaro LT and Camaro SS coupes. Fans of the Transformers movie series will, of course, recognize the Rally Yellow Camaro as the Autobot Bumblebee from the original 2007 film and the 2009 sequel Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. The Camaro reprises that role in Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which opens in 3D Tuesday and worldwide Wednesday. Chevy said the Transformers Special Edition package will be offered to customers in the United States, Canada, China, Japan, Europe, South America, and the Middle East. Dealers will begin taking orders in July, with the first customers shipments expected in September in the U.S. and Canada. In addition to the eye-catching Rally Yellow paint scheme, the Transformers Special Edition Camaro features black rally stripes, a high-wing rear spoiler and 20-inch black-painted wheels with high-performance summer tires. Dealer-installed options include 21-inch black-painted wheels and a black ground-effects package. The cockpit sports black leather accented with yellow stitching on the instrument panel, center console, armrests and seats. Inside Line says: Don't forget to look for the telltale Autobot Shield logos on the wheel center caps, front quarter panels, the front seat headrests and the center console.

2012 Chevy Corvette ZR1 Centennial Edition
Watch in 1080p! The 2012 ZR1 is like the "hooker" of all cars. The most bang for your buck ;) Although the next-generation Vette is less than two years away, Chevrolet has nonetheless made some enhancements for 2012 models that include, at last, respectable thrones—specifically, the same ones found in the Centennial Edition Corvette. (But without the microfiber suede inserts, which will be optional.) With distinct lateral and shoulder bolsters, the seats should greatly help drivers and passengers enjoy the Corvette's formidable performance without bouncing between armrest and center console. Additional interior touch-ups include tweaks to the steering-wheel trim and additional padding on the center console and armrest areas. With two new tweeters on the dash, the optional Bose sound system ups its speaker count to nine, and for fancier tastes, the optional leather interior now offers contrasting stitching in red, blue, or yellow. Incidentally, the brake calipers can also be ordered in red, yellow, silver, or gray. How about one of each? More Grip on the Road The 2012 Corvette also gets some performance-oriented upgrades as well, though the lion's share of them go to the hard-core Z06 model, which arguably doesn't need anything more than more grip to handle the 505 hp and 470 lb-ft of torque from its 7.0-liter V-8. Fortunately, additional grip it will get, in the form of newly available Michelin Pilot Sport Cup Zero Pressure tires. They will be available as part of the Z07 handling package for the Z06, and also for the ZR1 as part of its new PDE performance package. Measuring 285/30-19 in front and 335/25-20 in back, the new tires will help the Vette corner at more than 1.1g, according to Chevy. (That claim is not as outrageous as it may seem. We've recorded 1.07 in both a Z06 and a ZR1.) Also helpful are the new lightweight aluminum wheels paired with the new tires, which will be offered in satin black or machined finishes. More important, each wheel weighs about five pounds less than its counterpart on the current car. Also new to the Z06 is Performance Traction Management, which, in a nutshell, is multiple, driver-selectable stability control programs and launch control. While we love tire smoke and yaw as much as anybody, the prospect of a more-controllable Z06 sounds good to us. Rounding out the changes for the 2012 Corvette are a newly available racing-style full-width rear spoiler for the Z06 and ZR1 as part of the Z07 and PDE packages, respectively. The Z06 also is available with a new carbon-fiber hood. If you want to see these changes up close, your first opportunity will be a special event at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, where production of the 2012 model commences this July. And if you're us, you're excited for another opportunity to belt in the test gear and head to the test track—this time, with better seats. Info retrieved from: Car & Driver
