The Chevrolet Camaro has already got lots of fans going ga-ga, and with the UK prices now announced it’s bound to be a number one hit!
Arriving in showrooms in early 2012, the beefy American muscle car will be available from only £34,995 on-the-road. For that, customers will get a 6.2-litre V8 engined performance icon, with 432PS and suspension fine-tuned for European roads. The convertible model, which comes with a power-folding roof, will cost £39,995. Both variants are full European specification, with type-approved lighting and European-calibrated dials.
Available in left-hand-drive only, all UK versions of the Camaro will be the top specification model, with 20-inch alloy wheels, Brembo performance brakes, full leather upholstery with a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a Boston Acoustics nine-speaker audio system, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors.
Options will include a choice of premium paint colours, bonnet stripes, interior trim accents, a sunroof, polished alloy wheels and automatic transmission, which will cost £1,500 extra.
Chevrolet announced the Camaro pricing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the car was the centrepiece of the American firm’s centenary display, and was also driven up the hill by reigning British Touring Car champion and TV personality Jason Plato, better known for campaigning a Chevrolet Cruze.
“It’s with great delight that we welcome the Camaro to the Chevrolet UK product range,” said Mark Terry, Chevrolet UK Managing Director. “In the last two years we’ve replaced every model in our range with something new, and the Camaro’s DNA has been present in each and every one of them. Chevrolet cars are affordable, accessible, great to drive and full of character - none more so than our new halo model.”
