Chevrolet Cruze Bumblebee special edition launched
4 August 2009

A special edition Chevrolet Cruze will be unveiled at the Frankfurt motor show in September.

The Chevrolet Cruze Bumblebee has been created in association with German turning house Irmscher as a tribute to the Hollywood Transformers film hero Bumblebee.

The Cruze has undergone a largely cosmetic makeover – the body has been lowered by 30mm, the wheels have been replaced by 18-inch Imscher designed Turbo Stars with beefy nine-inch sport tyres, and it has been given striking orange ‘go fast’ stripes, wing mirrors and wheels.

The Bumblebee edition of the Cruze will only be available upon individual request in Europe, and no prices have been released.
