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

but then we couldn't have "reliable" cars :eek:

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.

So with these rear TT camaros... the setup includes what? a stock exhaust system which the turbos are then attached to and the output on the turbos runs all the way back to the engine block? just kinda confused.

You mean like the proposed Hennessey TT Camaro? What TT ricers? If they TT it, that's a good thing; the Japanese themselves don't mess around - it's those American autobuyers that mess it up.

Parts are more expensive (relative to income) in Japan. Therefore only well off kids do it. And they do it right.

Here, parts are cheaper so any idiot can put them on.
