Spy photographers usually try to focus their lenses on test mules and prototypes, but this week, a camera-toting sleuth stumbled upon some filming for Transformers 4 on location at a General Motors proving grounds facility in Michigan. While Michael Bay's personal website has already shown us a handful of confirmed and potential characters for the movie, these images are our first live look at the Autobots including what appears to be the new Bumblebee.

Based on a highly stylized version of the redesigned 2014 Chevrolet Camaro, this Bumblebee has more of a conceptual look similar to the leading car used in the 2007 film. This includes a revised front end with LED-trimmed headlights and a more aggressive fascia as well as a widebody kit, but it still features the signature black-and-yellow Bumblebee paint job. The unique-looking Camaro is so fully realized that we can't help but wonder if it was an alternate design proposal for the 2014 facelift, repurposed here for Hollywood duty, or if it hints at the next-generation pony car. Either way, we have no idea how this car and the first-gen Camaro previously confirmed as being Bumblebee will fit into the movie.

Also present in these shots are the new Optimus Prime and Hound as well as the yet-to-be-named Bugatti Veyron and Chevrolet Corvette Stingray characters. Also worth noting is that recently revealed cars like the Lamborghini Aventador, Pagani Huayra and the mystery Freightliner are all unaccounted for during this film session.

I really hope that's not a precursor to the next Camaro. I'm not a fan of the current one, but this just look plain un-masculine whereas the current at least has "muscle"

Default This is the New Transformer 4's 2014 Camaro Bumblebee Concept

Only hours after our spies piqued our curiosity with a boatload of far-away shots from the filming set of Transformers 4 at the GM Proving Ground facility in Michigan, and which included the new Bumblebee, Michael Bay did it again and dropped an official photo of the car.

Bay had previously showed us a 1967 Camaro-based Bumblebee, and from what we gather, that car will likely be used as an entry in the film before the so-called 2014 Concept Camaro Bumblebee steps in to take the first role.

Just as there's no question that GM will use the placement of the Camaro in the movie to launch a Transformers edition of the car onto the market (as it did with the previous films), there's also no doubt that it will look different than this concept that comes with a newly designed face, different than the one we saw on the facelifted model.

Other bespoke parts found on the car include the ground effects kit, much wider rear fenders with air inlets, a fuel cap positioned on the rear quarter window and almost flush door handles.
