The 2012 Bugatti Veyron 16.4 Grand Sport is clearly looking to replace Bumblebee in the Transformers movie series. What a poseur. Even InsideLine has dubbed the Grand Sport’s yellow coat of paint and black accents the “Bumblebee Livery.” Since only 150 are slated for production and 45 have been sold, inventory is quickly becoming polar bear-rare and it’s not everyday you come across yellow leather seats either. If you happen to be hanging out in the UAE, check out the $2.05 million dollar vehicle in person. It is premiering at the 2012 Qatar Auto Show from January 25-28.
A few months back the Mojo Motors Blog put together a list of the ultimate list of movie cars.

Here’s a quick and unsophisticated history lesson. Films become popular in the early 1900′s, right around the same time as automobiles. The first mainstream feature film in America was released in 1912. The first automobile, the Ford Model T, was released in 1908. Since then, nearly one bazillion films have been produced and probably just as many cars too. Over one hundred years later, cars have become integral parts, even characters, in some of the greatest movies.
