The Chevrolet Camaro sells out in Japan - all 120 of them
While the 2010 Chevrolet Camaro has enjoyed an impressive showing in the U.S. market, that shouldn’t come as a surprise to a lot of us because, well, the Camaro has always been one of Chevrolet’s strongest cars among American car owners.
It turns out, the US isn’t the only place where the Camaro is considered king. The iconic American muscle/sports car has already sold out in Japan despite the car not being on sale yet. Confused?
As it turns out, GMAP has already received over 120 orders for the Camaro, more than the quota GM originally pegged for the Land of the Rising Sun. While it’s misleading to assume that the Camaro has been flying off the shelves in the Japan – there are, after all, only 120 units that’s going to be sold in Japan. – it should warm the hearts of the folks from GM to see that the Camaro has fetched quite a following in Japan.
Continued after the jump.
We don’t know why GM would only send 120 Camaros to Japan but we’re sure that after hearing the news that the car has already sold out even before it’s set to go on sale, it would probably be in their best interests to send over a fresh new batch of the Camaros to waiting and eager Japanese folks, most of whom, we can imagine, are knocking their heads for missing out on the first 120 cars that was sold there.
After all, the Camaro has always been a car that Japanese car enthusiasts have been smitten over for a long time and it seems like a good business idea for GM to take advantage of this.
