Meanwhile, this car, termed Letrons, was built by Letvision in 2016. According to the official website, the full-scale, drivable BMW Transformer can be remotely operated and is also capable of doing neck and head movements. The vehicle has dynamic hydraulic controls and can do arm and hand movements as well.

When in car mode, the Letron can move and turn under its own electric power, but things get interesting when the transformation is triggered. The transformation from car to bot is accomplished with a combination of hydraulics and electric motors and takes just under a minute, according to the site. 

However, once transformed, the Letron just stands and looks around. It can’t walk but it can turn its head and move its arms, wrists and fingers.
