In anticipation of the upcoming release of the summer blockbuster, Transformers 3: Dark of the Moon, Los Angeles-based prestige tuning company CEC has announced its involvement in creating the newest character, “Q”.
As a long time CEC customer, the movie’s acclaimed Director/Producer, Michael Bay, contacted Claus Ettensberger at CEC to help design the newest Autobot for the upcoming action thriller. With a base Mercedes E550 as the platform, CEC went to work transforming two identical sedans into Decepticon killers with style.
The conversion included new custom blue paint, which was specifically chosen by Michael Bay to make the character stand out. The CEC enhancements incorporated a custom aerodynamic kit with a front spoiler, side skirts, rear apron, trunk spoiler, fenders, suspension and exhaust system. The stock wheels were replaced with CEC C725 forged wheels (20x8.5” front, 20x10” rear) and Michelin PS2 tires (245/30R20 front, 285/30R20).
These photos are a sneak peek of the impressive results to give you an idea of what will appear on the silver screen when the movie is seen by millions on July 1st, 2011.
