Official UK imports of GM's iconic US muscle car will start in the first half of 2011
1 July 2010

GM UK has officially confirmed that it will begin official UK imports of Chevrolet’s American muscle coupé, the Camaro, in the first half of 2011.

The first official UK model is on display at the Goodwood Moving Motor Show today.

The Camaro will only be available in the UK with the range-topping 6.2-litre V8 engine, which produces 426bhp. It can get from 0-60mph in less than 5.0sec and reach a top speed limited to 155mph.

Full UK specs will be announced nearer the car's on sale date, but Chevrolet has confirmed the car will come with a full UK warranty. Potential buyers can register their interest on Chevrolet's official website.

Hmmm, wasn't this car developed by Holden for Chevrolet? Interesting that they have yet to commit to a RHD version, since it was developed in Australia from the Commodore platform (RHD and LHD versions of which are sold in different markets) and was originally going to form the basis for the now-cancelled next-gen Monaro.

You know, I am a vegetarian, MINI driving member of Friends of the Earth but every time I see an American muscle car, I am filled with an inexplicable longing.

You'll probably find the EU insists on them crash testing another 100 RHD versions. And destruction test the RHD cupholders for 5 years.

Awesome! Still, I think I will hold put for the dodge Challenger. Hopefully with GM bringing the Camaro and dodge supposedly the Challenger, perhaps ford will bring the Mustang and we will have the choice of all 3 pony cars! I so hope this happens....

The car is very large by European standards, (the hooded headlights mislead its bulk) not the kind you can throw around urban streets or twisty country roads. It's made to cruise down city boulevards and glide effortessly highways between States.

Love it, LHD or not i'd have one in a heartbeat. Wouldn't even care that i couldnt fit it between gaps, park it on tight roads or attempt ambitous cornering.

The company should take a leaf out of high-end limousine design that store an umbrella in the door by creating a space where a sawn off shotgun can be secreted.

    The Volvo V90 is a big estate ploughing its own furrow. We’re about to see if it is refreshing or misguided
  • Kia Stonic
    First Drive
    18 October 2017
    Handsome entrant into the bulging small crossover market has a strong engine and agile handling, but isn’t as comfortable or complete as rivals
  • Hyundai Kona

    18 October 2017
    Hyundai's funky-looking Kona crossover with a peppy three-cylinder engine makes all the right noises for the car to be a success in a crowded segment

    17 October 2017
    The Citroen C3 Aircross has got funky looks and a charming interior, but it's another small SUV, and another dynamic miss. Numb steering is just one thing keeping it from class best
  • Skoda-Karoq 2.0 TDI 4x4
    First Drive
    16 October 2017
    Diesel version of Skoda’s junior SUV is unobtrusive and undemanding, but we’d still go for the silkier petrol version of the Karoq
