Watch: A Real, Working Transformer Built Out of a BMW

While we still haven’t gotten those flying cars that sci-fi has promised for like a century, we officially have a real Transformer. A company called Letrons has successfully converted a BMW into a working Transformer and if its website is any indication they actually want to sell these things.

What you see in the video above is the first working test model and “leader” of the Letrons crew. His name is “ANTIMON.” It took 8 months for the designers and engineers to complete.

While the video above gives you a full demonstration of the Letrons’ car mode and conversion you can get a more detailed look at it in the making-of video below. It was built from an actual car but is currently only remote controlled. The plan is to get a street legal, driveable version soon. It also doesn’t walk yet.

If you happen to be sitting on a pile of cash to throw away on an expensive toy, make sure you don’t plan to use your personal Transformer for evil. They are only for sale “if the buyers project and their reasons for use, meets the criteria of the Letrons team.” These are Autobots, not Decepticons.

While the video above shows the car actually moving and converting, the making-video embedded below gives you a much more detailed look.

These four models are planned for the future:
