Welcome to the site. Sorry, but I couldn't tell you when it will be coming to market in Australia. I imagine GM will be making as many as possible for the states and will immediately change to build the verts. I imagine, once GM builds enough for the states, they will go back and begin building for Europe, etc....prolly building 24 hours a day. Can anyone else help out w/ this?

Oh, and you can edit your posts if you'd like....misspelled words, adding info, deleting info, adding pictures, etc. I fixed it for ya....no prob.

I think Holden will have the equivalent of the camaro. Maybe slightly different styling queues though.

I've heard that there will not be a GM twin to the Camaro. And as far as I know, every Camaro will be made in Oshawa. So it looks like everybody else will have to wait a little while longer than us in north america for the Camaro.

Unless they import it.

Might have to talk to a dealer on that one...find different shipping companies. You'd probably have to pay for shipping, taxes, and the list would go on. I couldn't tell you cost, but think it would be up there.

I remember back in '01 it cost just over $1000 USD to ship a car from Fort Worth, Texas to Los Angeles, California then on to Honolulu, Hawaii. Because it was state to state (and it was a car that had been used for a couple years before shipped) there was no VAT or GST like Tag mentioned. I would guess you could expect to pay more than a few thousand for a brand new car being shipped that far internationaly.

Dont know what these companies are thinking they should of had this thing on the shelves this year to go out on the publicity of Transformers. There not going to have a problem selling these cars anywhere, Easily the coolest car ive come across in my 24 years. And apparently affordable, you guys are so lucky in the US if your going to get these for 20-30kUS that is so cheap. Our Monaro's go from 45-60k and higher AU$, For what you get it really makes this Camaro look good.

Yeah, more than a few thousand is right. It cost about $3,000 to ship an SUV from Arizona to Alaska. I don't know for sure, but I would probably estimate an added 5-10,000 dollars. Maybe more with the proper insurance.

35,000 for the car and 10,000 for importing it, worth every cent i would pay that. Though im sure it would work out alot more than that im thinking 55-60k Aussie dollars would be more realistic.
