If you’re driving down the road, when suddenly an Autobot transforms in front of you, no, you haven’t been transported to Cybertron. But you have been transported to Russia.

Oh, did I say Autobot? I mean Decepticon. Only a Decepticon would descend upon Earth with a spray of bullets. Yes, bullets. This vehicle is a fully armed and operational battle bot. Recently, Russian father-son team Gennadiy and Sergey Kocherga took their old VAZ-2110 Lada automobile and turned it into a lean, mean metamorphosing machine. It took the two six months.

According to Raptly TV’s YouTube channel, Gennadiy said:

"This year, I was in Singapore and I visited a Chinese market, where I saw a toy car driving around. And it was rising up and coming down [as a Transformer], so I bought it….[We took] the general concept and the idea and that is the result. It looks like a world-class car, it can drive and shoot, it performs the same tricks as seen in the film, in the cartoons. The next year, we plan to build another two cars, based on the same concept. We already have a lot of unusual ideas.”

Check out the video below, where you can see the Transformer in action at a car show in the city of Oryol.

As long as you don’t encounter it on the road, you should be fine.
