The British have never really liked our vulgar American sports cars, including our best offering, the Chevrolet Corvette. GM isn’t giving up though, as they’re going to be offering the Camaro muscle car in the UK as early as 2011. The company made the announcement at the Goodwood Festival of Speed earlier today.

The Camaro has been on sale here in the U.S since 2009 and the U.K Camaro will arrive in dealers sometime during the first half of 2011. Despite it’s hard-to-use interior, the muscle car has proven to be a good seller for GM, with over 200,000 units sold.

The Camaro is available in many different variants in the U.S, including a base model with 304 horsepower and a V6 engine. UK buyers will only be able to get the SS model with 426 horsepower and a six-speed manual gearbox.

The car will be able to hit 60 miles per hour in just five seconds and a top speed of 155 mph. The suspension will also be tuned to cope with British roads.

No price information was given, but we can expect a hefty premium over the U.S sticker price of $32,000.

Chevrolet brand is a newcomer to the UK. There would be a great competition between the Vauxhall and the Camaro. How many of the GM car have sell anyway?

I saw a Chevy Dealership when I was in the Netherlands Last year. They had Cobalts, malibus and a bunch of others.

With American engines, it’s not the hp you need to look at, it’s the low rpm torque. If you keep comparing hp to displacement, it will never add up.

Smart move GM, with the Mazda RX-8 going out of production next year, with European cars getting more FWD then ever, with the economy getting a bit better and with the updated interior that the Camaro will get next year, this car has just what it needs to succeed in Europe. They just need to hope that Hyundai won’t sell the Genesis Coupe there before they can send some Camaros at the dealers.

What is up with Top Speeds blatant bias?

"Despite it’s hard-to-use interior"

What hard to use interior? Has anyone from Top Speed even been in one? I have driven it many times and have not found anything hard to use. It has a beautiful interior with the best radio I have ever heard, is very comfortable and high quality, and has a good gauge layout.
