Meet the 1992 Peterbilt 379 Optimus Prime Truck!
If there is just one thing that was useful taking away from the Transformers movie, it was those amazing vehicles. So, one of those vehicles is the 1992 Peterbilt Optimus Prime Truck that is up for auction.
In order to get the desired look by the filmmakers, a big team of artist worked really hard to conceptualize many cars and trucks, attempting to find the perfect look for each transformer. At the end, someone drew something that was based on the huge Peterbilt tractor that caught the attention of Michael Bay. This truck was cool-looking, so Bay can use it like a nod to the Duel with Steven Spielberg. The vehicle has a deep blue base and red flames coming from the front of the truck. But the auction warns that this huge monster may not be emissions compliant in all of the states, and that this truck is being sold “like-is.”
