Robot Names Of The Two New Transformers 4 Autobots Revealed


Entertainment news site Joblo states that they know the names of the two Autobots revealed today. According to the site:

2013 Bugatti Veyron Grand Sport Vitesse is Drift; who may possibly be the earlier rumored “Samurai Bot”.

2014 C7 Corvette Stingray is Slingshot.

However, speaking to the fans Michael Bay Official Website Admin Nelson said “This is the 4th movie, you would think these guys would’ve learned by now that production names DO NOT EQUAL final name.”

Well, the debate is on. Would you like to keep the names of these hot new cars? Or would you think they should be different characters? Fire away then!

    Exclusive: The names of two new Autobots from Transformers 4 have been revealed - Movie News |
    According to the source the C7 Corvette Stingray is named "Slingshot" and the Bugatti Grand Sport Vitesse is named "Drift". There are two Autobots with the same names from Transformer's first generation of characters but it isn't completely clear if they will be the same characters or just share the same names.
    Isn't slingshot a plane and seriously, Drift. Though being Bayformers they probably be new characters with nothing in common with the names.

    Drift would certainly tie into the previous report of a former Decepticon "samurai" appearing in the film.

    please let Matthew McConaughey voice Drift. It's the voice I hear whenever I read that character.

    For a moment I thought it's Sideswipe who's the corvette because he's also a stingray. But introducing Slingshot and Drift is so cool!

    Drift? Oh boy, the Japanese name of Armada Dirt Boss!

    All joking aside, I never expected Slingshot, of all things they could choose. And I seriously hope Drift is a Decepticon the entire length of this first film (if that trilogy thing is still going around).

    This. Drift is fine, but I don't really like Slingshot as a name at all.
