Viewers of Transformers series probably remember the samurai alien robot, Drift, who belonged of the Autobots group in the last Transformers film, Age of Extinction. Previously appearing through a Bugatti Veyron, for the 5th venture, Drift will disguise himself as the recently unveiled Mercedes-AMG GT R. Director and producer of the project, Michael Bay just recently published an image of the completely pimped up AMG GT R on social networks adding, “The Samurai returns thanks to the Mercedes Benz GT R AMG. Looking good, Drift.”
The launch of the fifth Transformers film – The Last Knight is still a year away, planned for a June 2017 launch. And it is obvious that when it concerns keeping the buzz alive, director Michael Bay does it finest. In the past weeks we saw the new Bumblebee Chevrolet Camaro, the brand-new Barricade Ford Mustang, a brand new transformer – Squeaks that takes the type of a Vespa, and now Drift with the brand-new Mercedes-AMG GT R.
Mercedes-AMG revealed the new GT R just last week at the Goodwood festival of speed in the UK. The 3rd model Mercedes-AMG, the performance division of the Stuttgart-based carmaker, the AMG GT R is the most effective AMG built to this day. Producing a maximum of 577 bhp, the car is functioned by a 4.0-litre V-8 with twin turbochargers and direct injection motor and is also called as the ‘Beast of Green Hell.’ This is for that the GT R was executed some comprehensive screening at world’s hardest race track, Nurburgring a.k.a. Green Hell, ironically for its green and beautiful surrounding. To suite its title Mercedes will offer the AMG GT R in an unique “AMG Green Hell Magno” colour.
Unfortunately that will not be the colour of Drift in the film. In the very first venture, Drift, or rather the AMG GT R, will be seen in an unique Black-Red colour combination as seen in the photo.
