Transformers Villain is a Ford Mustang Police Car - “To Punish and Enslave”

The Ford Mustang previously appeared in the Transformers movies as Barricade, a violent alien robot warrior from the Decepticon crew who takes the Earthly form of a Saleen S281 police car. The Barricade Mustang has had both major and minor roles in several Transformers movies. With 'The Last Knight' came the newest generation Ford muscle car.

Like the previous Barricade Mustang, the Ford built for Transformers 5 has a push bar, police lighting from top to bottom and the “police” livery in black and white – complete with “To Punish and Enslave” on the rear quarter panels.
Optimus Prime has transformed into several different cars through the series' history, but this time he's all Camaro. The next generation of Bumblebee is modeled after the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro.

No details have been offered on the car’s powertrain, though it’s likely the car will be powered by either the LT1 6.2-litre V8 engine found in the Camaro SS or the LT4 supercharged 6.2-litre V8 unit from the Camaro ZL1.
