We already knen there would be a RHD Camaro, but I thought I would post this anyway. BTW I wouldn't pay any attention to the 6.0L thing, I imagine its just speculation on the authors part.

GM to produce right-hand drive Chevy Camaro for Europe

Posted Today 10:41 AM by Zach Gale
Category: Auto News, Europe, Chevrolet


To please muscle car fans on both sides of the Atlantic, General Motors will convert the Chevrolet Camaro to right-hand drive for the European market.

"We can have a maximum of 1000 right-hand drive coupes," said Wayne Brannon, Chief Executive of Chevrolet Europe, "and 1000 right-hand drive cabriolets."

Autocar says that the UK will get 300 units each of the 6.0-liter Camaro coupes and convertibles. UK enthusiasts can get a close look at the Camaro at the London Motor Show, where GM will reveal whether the Camaro will be sold as a standalone brand like the Corvette in Europe.

Even with European gas prices still exceeding the prices U.S. consumers pay at the pump, we expect the (maximum) 2000 right-hand drive Camaro drivers to care just as much about gas as they will preserving the life of their tires.

Yea, but he's right about England, Japan, Australian, and India.

As well as like dozens of small island nations in the Pacific...

Hmm, Indians can't afford a Camaro :(
(considering how everyone's just barely buying the $2,500 Tata Nano...)

And I don't like how you can cross an island "nation" and not reach 60 mph :(

1000 RHD - oh now that's not going to be enough!! I believe they move at least 500 RHD coupes in the first year. What about OZ & NZ, surley they could sell a few in Japan as well. Get

I agree. I think they will need more than that because this car is going to Austrailia as well.
