Remember Chitty Chitty Bang Bang? The magical car is the focus of a 1968 British musical. Ryan Wells decided to take the memorable vehicle and combine it with Transformers. Yep, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Transformer. It works way better than you might imagine. As you can see from the above photo, Wells incorporated all kinds of rad details into the mash-up. He made the armor, chassis, wheels — all of it — and added lights, sound, and steam. You can see his initial design below as well as some in progress pictures. There are even more photos at Facebook and videos that show the effects in action.
