If you, like me, grew up watching the animated series and playing with the action figures, then this is absolutely a dream come true for you.

A bunch of Turkish engineers just created a real-life Transformer car which, like our favorite Autobots and Decepticons, transforms from vehicle mode to robot mode – and vice versa.

So yes, there’s really more to this sporty red BMW than meets the eye!

A robot in disguise: This sporty BMW can transform into a life-sized robot.

Built by 12 engineers and 4 supporting technicians, the Letrons transforming car came as an idea when the company was brainstorming for a futuristic project. The ANTIMON is built from an actual car and it took the team 8 months to complete it in Ankara, Turkey.

While the car functions via a remote control, the official website tells us that they are “not drivable in traffic yet.” It is, however, a future possibility that they are already looking into.

The video below shows us how the vehicle does its transformation. And it’s pretty sick!

Of course, it should be noted that Letrons do not have the capability to walk, fly and punch like a real Transformer. Still, this looks pretty badass and the idea of owning a life-sized robot can be extremely tempting for some.

So far, the car is not “drivable in traffic yet” and can only run using a remote control.

So are Letrons for sale? The website said:

“Yes LETRONS can be for sale if the buyers project and their reasons for use, meets the criteria of the LETRONS team.”

The company mentions that buyers can get the car-slash-robot if they meet the “criteria of the Letrons Team.”

No price has been mentioned but for those seriously interested with this, it is a safe bet that this won’t be cheap.
