With shooting starting in New Mexico on “Transformers 4,” Michael Bay has revealed the new designs for the Optimus Prime truck and two of the Autobots.

Bay said the upgraded, custom-built Optimus Prime is from Western Star (a subsidiary of Daimler Trucks North America) while the Autobots are a 1,200-horsepower Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse worth more than $2.4 million and a race-inspired C7 Corvette Stingray, based on Chevrolet’s upcoming 2014 production car.
