A group of Turkish engineers adapted an ordinary BMW into a Transformer that turns into a giant robot with arms and legs at the touch of a button.

In a process lasting seconds, the car doors open and extend into two blade-like arms.

Finally, a head emerges from the car roof, creating a fiercesome-looking machine that towers over the tarmac.

It took a team of 12 engineers and four supporting technicians from Turkish firm Letvision built the fully-working prototype, called ANTIMON.

Although the model does not have a price, the company plan to sell the Transformers in the future.

They are not currently drivable in traffic, but plans are in place to add an electric engine that would make this possible.

The ANTIMON cannot walk, but the developers say this functionality could be added if they find a buyer willing to pay.

The cost of the gadget has not yet been decided.

The fifth installment of the Transformers film is due to hit the big screen in 2017.

Earlier this month, cars were seen whizzing through the streets of London for the filming of Transformers: The Last Knight.

Brightening up the drizzly streets of the capital was an array of shimmering supercars including a Lamborghini Centenario, a Chevrolet Camaro and an Aston Martin DB11.
