Chevy Camaro to go on sale in the UK
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.
