Chev Camaro rides again

Richard Blackburn, The Sydney Morning Herald, 01/09/06
Keep an eye out for prototype versions of the new Chevrolet Camaro testing on Australian roads.
Chevrolet Camaro concept​


Disguised prototype versions of the reborn Chevrolet Camaro should be on Australian roads within months, as General Motors finalises its plans to bring the iconic American nameplate to market.

Australia will have a lead role in engineering the rear-wheel-drive underpinnings of the Camaro, which will be built at GM's Oshawa, Ontario, plant in Canada. Early production versions of the Camaro will begin leaving the plant at the end of 2008, with sales starting in the first quarter of 2009.

Work has already begun on an $875 million manufacturing facility for the vehicle.

The new Camaro is a modern interpretation of the 1969 icon and will look almost identical to the concept vehicle first featured at the Detroit motor show earlier this year.

The sports coupe will be sold in a variety of models, with the choice of manual and automatic transmissions, as well as V6 and V8 engines. GM hopes the new Camaro will appeal to young drivers, as well as those who remember the original.

Almost 4.8 million Camaros were produced between 1967 and 2002 and more than 1000 Camaro clubs exist around the world.
