The 2010 sold out in Japan!

Quote:
TOKYO — The new Chevrolet Camaro has not even gone on sale yet, and already it has sold out 4 — in Japan.

General Motors' local arm, General Motors Asia Pacific (Japan), says it has received more than 120 orders for the new-shape Camaro, which is its quota for the year. GMAP spokesman Michihiro Yamamori confirmed the orders.

Many of the orders are reportedly from men in their 30s and 40s who haven't been put off by GM's June 1 bankruptcy filing.

Along with the Chevrolet Corvette and the Ford Mustang, the Camaro has long had a strong cult following on Japan's roads. Owners love the power, speed and style of American muscle cars and the strong visual statement they make.

Final prices are not expected until October, but Japanese media are reporting that the Camaro will come to Japan in both six-cylinder and V8 forms with pricing likely to be the equivalent of $45,325 to $56,390.

Inside Line says: On both sides of the Pacific, the Camaro has hit the ground running. — Peter Nunn, Correspondent

Fixed the title for you.

The term "quota" is interesting.

And the Japanese government will tax every one of them at the rate of 108%
No, I'm not joking.

Kudos to the folks over there stepping up and getting one!

Nah they'll probably just make it a twin-turbo like they always do with every and then put vinyl decals on the windshield and then put a hideous airplane wing on the back

but then we couldn't have "reliable" cars

i honestly heard a guy the other day talking about his new car.. he'd gotten a Scion TC because it was made by toyota and would run forever... also looks like a ricer right out of the box and has no balls whatsoever, but i guess balls don't matter anymore.

I've read that while drifting has grown in popularity out here, it's popularity has waned in Japan in recent years.

Still legal in 16 states. It's happy. It's fun. It's Happy Fun Car.
Do not taunt Happy Fun Car.

I don't think our government is really that concerned about the debt problem. It makes great rhetoric though.
