Camaro to be Launched in China as 科迈罗 (Ke Mai Luo)
 
科迈罗 (Ke Mai Luo) doesn't really mean anything, it's just a phonetic translation of "Camaro." It will be interesting to see how well the car sells in China's huge potential market!

GM release:

Earlier today, SGM announced that Chevrolet will introduce the legendary Camaro sports car at Auto Shanghai 2011 in April. The Camaro will have a sonorous Chinese name — 科迈罗 (Ke Mai Luo). The Ke Mai Luo with a 3.6-liter engine will be priced around RMB 500,000.

In recent years, China's luxury sports car market has been flourishing, highlighted by the midsize luxury segment (priced at RMB 400,000--800,000), which grew 141% in 2010. At present, this segment is dominated by cars with European design. The Camaro, with its “masculine” styling, will be a welcome addition.

Additional details about the Camaro will be announced at the Shanghai auto show.

Yeah and everyone knows what happens when they sell something to a foreign country and they like it.... We suffer from it,our prices go up, and we have less supply. I say keep the camaro (an American revolution) in the USA!!! Just my 2 cents!!

I don't think the prices will go up here. Now in China on the other hand, it's probably twice what it is here.

GM will sell millions to that market over the next few years!

Aftermarket...
 
So if they are only selling the 3.6 at this time, that means if it sells well enough we'll see more aftermarket demand and in turn support for that engine as well, right?

I'd be all for that for sure! :D

Jeebus that conversion comes out to $76,267 for a V6!!

How much money are they making over there? I am gonna look for a job over there!
