  • Welcome to Forever Pontiac

    We are a community of Pontiac enthusiasts. The purpose of our community is to keep alive the Pontiac spirit by sharing (or showing off) our cars, discussing Pontiac, helping each other work on our cars and find information, plus attend various meets/shows/etc... To aid discussion, sharing, event planning and selling of parts/cars/anything, we have various parts of the website to aid this from Forums to an online Garage to Classifieds to even a Document Download Repository. You can find links to these in our navigation above based on what each section helps with (discussion, local events, learning, etc...).

    We invite you to contribute, find help or just view some of our member's amazing cars! Don't forget, we also have great contests from time to time (like our Pontiac of the Month and yearly calendar contest) and our Pontiac This OR That, a fun game where you choose the best of two randomly selected Pontiacs from our online garage.

    We look forward to seeing you around!

Car and Driver: “Transformers: The Last Knight” to Feature Mercedes-AMG GT R as Drift

Recommended Posts

2017 Mercedes-AMG GT R

-

With its big fenders and crazy aerodynamics, the ultra-hardcore Mercedes-AMG GT R is one of most cartoonish looking cars we’ve ever seen. That makes it perfect to appear in a Transformers movie. Apparently director Michael Bay agrees, too, since he’s just announced that a GT R will play (?) the role of Drift, previously portrayed by a Bugatti Veyron, in the fifth installment of the rebooted series, Transformers: The Last Knight.
-After showing off the new Bumblebee Camaro and evil Barricade Mustang last month, Bay tweeted out the new GT R earlier this week. The Transformers movies are defined by the star cars, which in the recent movies have been cast as American muscle cars, so it’s cool to see one of Europe’s finest join the mix for The Last Knight.

We’ll have to wait until next June to see how the GT R fares in robot warfare, but in the real world, it’s the real deal. It’s got 577 horsepower from a 4.0-liter twin-turbo V-8, active aerodynamics, and four-wheel-steering to help it dominate all racetracks—all capabilities the Autobots are sure to take advantage of.
