You won’t believe this real-life Transformer made by a group of Turkish engineers from a BMW.

Whisper it: it’s actually drivable (but only via a remote control).

However, its electric engine means its creators are. hopeful it could be drivable in traffic in the future.

Letrons, an engineering company based in Turkey, made the 12-foot tall robot, that they named Antimon, from a BMW 3 series car.

The project took a lengthy 11 months to complete.

While it’s not going to be battling Decepticons or flying, Antimon is an authentic and actual-size replica of the character from the Transformers movie franchise.

The head emerges from the hood, which also forms the chest and torso of the robot.

Meanwhile, the arms and feet are integrated into the rear section of the car.

You can see it transform in the video above – and it’s guaranteed to make you want one of your own.
