GM's star lineup of vehicles featured in this summer's "Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen" motion picture just made their debut at the Chicago Auto Show. Highlighted on the General's display is the all-new Corvette Stingray concept (also known as the Corvette Centennial Concept) called Sideswipe (see it in the Motor Trend Chicago coverage). Joining the futuristic 'Vette in the film and on stage are four new characters, all based on Chevrolet models and concepts.
Skids and Mudflap: These diminutive twins stay mostly true to their 2007 New York Auto Show concepts, the Beat and Trax, but incorporate a few accessories and color changes.
If you haven't heard, the Beat will make it stateside by 2011 as the Spark.
Jolt: It's essentially the 2011 Chevrolet Volt plug-in hybrid but all gussied-up for big screen duty.
Bumblebee: The star Autobot reprises his role but unlike in the previous movie where he was based on the Camaro concept car, he's now sporting production model traits from the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro. Twenty-inch wheels and various SS model cues are donned by the 'bot. He's on display in Chicago as a 17-ft tall statue in Autobot form.
There hasn't been any word if Ratchet -- the loveable modified Hummer H2 rescue vehicle, or Ironhide -- the GMC TopKick who all most didn't survive the first movie, having any new updates, but they are both expected to be in the upcoming film.
