A group of Turkish engineers adapted an ordinary BMW into a Transformer that turns into a giant robot with arms and legs at the touch of a button.
In a process lasting seconds, the car doors open and extend into two blade-like arms. Finally, a head emerges from the car roof, creating a fiercesome-looking machine that towers over the tarmac.
It took a team of 12 engineers and four supporting technicians from Turkish firm Letvision built the fully-working prototype, called ANTIMON.
The cost of the gadget has not yet been decided. Although the model does not have a price, the company plan to sell the Transformers in the future.
They are not currently drivable in traffic, but plans are in place to add an electric engine that would make this possible.
The ANTIMON cannot walk, but the developers say this functionality could be added if they find a buyer willing to pay.
