Introducing "Klaus"....... European Market Camaro CTF unit

Nothing will ever take the place of my beloved "Thor" - (....and I'm not sure I can say why other than "Thor" 'spoke' to me, so to speak -- he had a completely different 'feeling' than "Helios" - "Apollo" -- "Thor V 2.0 -- etc)

-- I dunno - mebbe he was the symbol of rebirth......whatever, his new Owner who lives in Pennsylvania has a real treasure....)


Anywhoo........

"Klaus" is a CTF unit owned by the Performance Car Team - he's "European" meaning that he was built for markets within the European Union. There are many under-the-skin differences as well as some that aren't under the skin.....

From the outside, headlamp washers, specific side mirrors (really big!) with integral turn signals and running lights -- tow hook cutouts, and of course, a very different taillamp appearance. I know some were horrified when the pics of a yellow one appeared on the internet - but let me say that the appearance in person is much better (...isn't it always??) and I like it! (I came up behind him a week ago on an interstate - another member was driving him - and I was captivated by the difference that the taillamps and spoiler make......)

No OnStar.....:eek:

Radio is in different Hz -- and of course the Speedometer is in Kilometers --

He's an LS3 tuned for the european market (fuel) -- and of course, he's ALL CAMARO!!!

I'll only have him for a short period of time - but I'm very much looking forward to every mile!

I love those tail lights! Not much of a fan of the bigger mirrors though.

Lucky you for getting to drive that sexy beast.

While in Oshawa, I caught a glimpse of a door with euro mirrors being fitted to a Camaro on the assembly line, but sadly I missed seeing the taillamps in person. :(

Enjoy your temporary ride, and once again THANK YOU! for your part in opening the plant to the Camaro (and Firebird) community.

I think I'd like those tail lights a lot better if they didn't have the white part. Otherwise, they look kind of cool.

The mirrors belong on a Silverado.

Bloody hell!! I'm pleased I went with a US spec car, and had minimal subtle changes done to make it legal here. Those mirrors look so out of character with rest of the car, and the rear lights at night look like a sign in an opticians window.
