http://www.edmunds.com/insideline/do/News/articleId=155206TOKYO — 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
