With same look as Camaro concept seen at Detroit this year, newcomer is destined to appear in UK showrooms

General Motors has confirmed that a modern-day Camaro will go into production late next year, and Auto Express can exclusively reveal it's on the way here.

Ready to cash in on drivers' love of retro muscle cars, Chevrolet has stated that the production Camaro will be

As it's based on GM's global rear-wheel-drive platform, there is nothing to stop the stunning performance machine being converted to right-hand drive - and Chevy UK top brass are desperate to get it to Britain by 2009.
