One of the most iconic cars in the history of the U.S. is packing its bags and is heading East, well past the Statue of Liberty, leaving the East Coast behind. This pony car is going on a trip to visit the wealthiest, most car crazed place in the world.

The vehicle that is making its way to the Middle East is none other than the Chevrolet Camaro. It is safe to assume that if the Camaro could afford a smile it’d have one stretching from ear to ear, thanks in large part to the monstrous highways found in the region, as well as the bargain basement prices of fuel.

And we’re guessing that the feeling is well-reciprocated by those exceedingly rich Middle Easterners who can finally get their well-manicured hands on one of the most popular modern day muscle cars in the world. The Camaro’s popularity, which needed no additional boost, reached new heights thanks to its performance as Bumblebee in the Transformers franchise. The Hollywood buzz only added to the car’s long and illustrious history as an American automotive icon, and it’s a safe bet to say that order forms will be flying off salesmen’s desks as soon as the Camaro lands in the desert.

Continued after the jump


Middle Eastern new car buyers will be able to have their Camaro in two different flavors; the first being the 3.6 Liter V6 model and the more tempting option, the SS, just so happens to be powered by a 6.2 Liter V8. No matter what’s under the hood, you can get a six-speed manual transmission or an automatic gearbox right next to your feet. Prospective buyers who can’t wait to get their hands on the Camaro can satiate their cravings by going to and wait with baited breath until the Camaro is available in the region.

Kirby’s first exposure into the world of automobiles happened when he caught Knight Rider on television as a five-year old boy. David Hasselhoff didn’t leave much of an impression on him (that happened later on in Baywatch), but KITT certainly did. To this day, Kirby remains convinced that he will one day own a car with the same ‘spirit’ as the original KITT (not the 2008 monstrosity). He doesn't know when that will be, but until then, he’s committed to expressing his love for KITT, and all cars for that matter, here at TopSpeed.  Read More

@aspenzdad, gold plated? Most probably will be seen on German or Italian cars, but no American Muscles... So, stop the crazy idea of bombing which got your country into endless financial crisis, and safe your money to afford one of your own cars.

There is a huge number of fans for the American Muscle cars in the middle east!

It’s a casual thing to see at least a corvette, SRT-10, challenger, camaro.. on a daily trip on a Saudi, Qatari or Emarati soil!

Cannot wait to get my hands behind the wheel of an SS Camaro!

Chevrolet, thank you smiley

The possibility of one of these showing up gold plated is reason enough to start bombing now!
