2007 “Transformers”/ 2007 Saleen S281 Extreme

Barricade, an evil Decepticon from the first film “Transformers” (2007), is memorable as the only Ford Mustang amongst many, many GM vehicles featured in the movie. Actually it was not Ford, it was 2007 Saleen S281 Extreme because Ford wouldn’t license the Mustang as a bad-guy robot. But Saleen, classified as an independent manufacturer, was willing to license the S281 as Barricade so that Hasbro could make all those toys.

The 2007 Saleen S281 Extreme looks great as a cop car that transforms into a giant battling robot. The best thing about Barricade, however, is the motto placed on its rear fender: “To Punish and Enslave”.
