Meet the Letron – a real life transformer that converts from a BMW into an awesome, giant robot complete with powerful arm movements and a creepy cyborg face.


The incredible driveable transformer has been unveiled by Turkish company, Letvision, in a move that will no doubt shake up the potential market of hitech, futuristic cars.

Inspired from Michael Bay’s movie franchise Transformers, Letrons has built a full-scale, drivable BMW Transformer. This BMW can be remotely operated and is also capable of doing neck and head movements.

While the transformer prototype can’t walk, it can move its head and neck as well as its arms, wrists and kinetic fingers. Engineers at the R&D company say a walking functionality can be added at an extra cost.

The robo-car also comes with a dynamic lighting system, WiFi technology and a smoke machine for added fearsome effect.

The Letron is for sale but the company won’t sell their impressive robot car hybrid to just anyone, saying that the buyer’s reasons for wanting the vehicle must meet the company’s “criteria” – though they don’t specify what this criteria entails.

No prices have been publicly revealed for those wanting a life-sized functional version of their favorite toy, however we’re pretty sure it’s going to be the reserve of gadget loving billionaires.
