Chevrolet Bringing Camaro to the Britain for £34,995 in LHD
That might seem a bit much for an unrefined brute from across the pond, but for the money customers will get a 6.2-litre V8 engined performance icon, with 432 hp and suspension re-tuned for European roads.
The convertible model, which comes with a power-folding fabric roof, will cost £39,995. Unlike in the old days when cars like this were simply imported and had tape over half their headlights, the new variants are full European specification, with type-approved lighting and European-calibrated dials. Unfortunately, it’s not all good news, because Chevrolet never got to swop the steering wheel over, so you’ll have to make due with LHD.
All UK versions of the Camaro will be the top specification model, with 20-inch alloy wheels, Brembo performance brakes, full leather upholstery with a six-way power adjustable driver’s seat, a Boston Acoustics nine-speaker audio system, Bluetooth and rear parking sensors.
Chevrolet announced the Camaro pricing at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, where the car was the center of attention, and was also driven up the hill by reigning British Touring Car champion and TV personality Jason Plato, better known for campaigning a Chevrolet Cruze.
“It’s with great delight that we welcome the Camaro to the Chevrolet UK product range,” said Mark Terry, Chevrolet UK Managing Director. “In the last two years we’ve replaced every model in our range with something new, and the Camaro’s DNA has been present in each and every one of them. Chevrolet cars are affordable, accessible, great to drive and full of character - none more so than our new halo model.”
