UK-Spec Chevy Camaro Pricing Announced

With fuel prices sky-high, more and more electric and hybrid cars heading to dealers, and ever-increasing pressure on car makers to bring down their CO2 outputs, General Motors clearly has its finger on the pulse, announcing the official introduction of, er, the 6.2-litre V8 Chevrolet Camaro to the UK market. Brilliant.

The fully type-approved, euro-spec Camaros, will be in showrooms from early 2012, and Chevy has today announced that its beefy coupe will be available from £34,995, with the convertible version costing £39,995.

All UK cars will be the top-spec model, which means (as well 426bhp) 20-inch alloy wheels, Brembo performance brakes, full leather upholstery with a six-way electrically adjustable driver’s seat, a Boston Acoustics nine-speaker audio system, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors (which, given its size, you might find useful).

Options will include a choice of ‘premium’ paint colours, bonnet stripes, interior trim accents, a sunroof, polished alloy wheels and automatic transmission.

The only fly in the ointment is that there’s no right-hand drive. But when it looks this good, do you really care? Especially when the VXR8 costs near-enough £50k...

    I saw Transformers 3 last night and am loving the new Bumblebee paint scheme.

    I wish these came in rhd, even say another 5k they'd still sell like hot cakes in that format!

    lost its wow factor when you can have been able to buy UK spec Holden v8 range in this contry since O4, some trading at sub 8k!or a spec-ed up 2year old vrx8 with pound for pound power at sub 20k.

    tranfsormers fans only in my opinion.

    So the 'UK spec' will still be US-style left hand drive. That sucks.
