Transformers: The Last Knight Baybuster Car-Flipper Revealed

Director Michael Bay loves his practical effects, and many of them seem to include making cars flip and tumble down the highway at ridiculous speeds.

If you've ever wondered how the team achieves those impressive visuals, the latest Transformers: The Last Knight behind the scenes footage reveals one key ingredient in making those impactful stunts happen, and it's called the Baybuster. The cobbled together heavy-duty vehicle is basically a fast moving snowplow, only instead of the scoop in the front angled upward the scoop is angled down. That way when it hits the other cars at fast speeds, it flips them up into the air in a variety of ways, all of which are accompanied with Bay's penchant for using lots and lots of explosions.
