Youths transform Citroen into life-sized Transformer

Perhaps fed up with transformers that don't transform, three Chinese friends spent $8,000 and countless hours turning a yellow Citroen C2 into a surprisingly lifelike Transformer that they call the Autobot X2. It looks like Bumblebee and weighs over 1323 pounds. According to one source the trio's next project will be Optimus Prime. More pictures after the jump, plus a transforming Citroen commercial that may have inspired them.
