Camaros being converted to RHD

Starting in October 2009, new Camaros are available for sale in Australia!

According to CarAdvice.com, Performax International (Queensland) will be the first company to import and convert the cars to right hand drive in Australia.

Performax's Nick Vandenberg says the converted, ADR approved and road registrable Camaro, will cost around $130-150,000 (AU). They recommend you act quick as many orders are already in the queue.

Pretty cool. We borrowed the GTO/Monaro from Australia and they are taking the Camaro from us.

What's the average yearly income per person in Oz? That's a lot of dough, in the US we would start to pay in that range for what would be considered exotic.

Things are expensive in AU.
Not to mention the import and conversion costs.

Thanks for all the updates in this thread - it may be a few months old now, but it's been interesting to flick through none the less

Holden has such a huge impact on their culture, I doubt these pricey camaros will get off the ground. They just love those UTEs and I saw a lot of them there last month during my visit. They have UTEs like we have silverados and F150's. I wish I could move there! What fun people!
