Foreign cars in asia are already very expensive, plus in China there's a 40% extra tax on any cars with engines over 4 liters.

It's not in American Dollars. It's probably in Yen. 200,000 over there is probably equal to about 35,000$ here.

just if you wonder , here in mexico (and we are just next to you) the camaro costs USD$$$40k for the base LT and 50k for a 2ss/rs .... yep there is no LS or 1ss , neither can you opt to get the RS package with the LTv6 maro , etc just those 2 configurations , and we just got 6 colors


there are fees for foreign cars, remember that the camaro (development of the car, use ,repair parts ,etc) you are buying is funneling money from dealers, americans workers who spent money in america..........and GM itself who pays taxes, to the US, so the the money ends within your country or goverment , meanwhile other countries have to set ridiculous fees in order to funnel some of that money that the US is earning , into the country in question. its not surprise to me to see a USD200k price tag for the camaro in china


PS. i just saw a 1995 red firebird transam used with 80 miles in spain (europe) at USD 20k


god bless you americans =)

Thats why italian made sports cars are so expensive over here, It is the import/ export taxes and fee's that acrue getting the cars shipped. Thats why containers are so closely guarded on ships, lots of fees going on there.

Why is everyone freeking out because a camaro costs $200,000 over there? That isn't in US Dollars. For example when I was living in australia EVERYTHING was more expensive when comparing it to US dollars, however I could have got a job as a stock boy at a grocery store for like $16 per hr. Point is, they get paid more, minimum wage is inthe double digits rather than single here.. so it equals out.. It took me a while to stop comparing everything like it was in US dollars, because that only really tells you what the cost is for a US citizen visiting that country.

So like was mentioned, $200,000 in their money is probably like $35,000 our money..someone who knows for sure can chime in

Good job on on the hot looking car!

It is that expensive because the US trade policies are f'ed up. They put huge tarrifs on their imports and we don't put jack on our imports. The great Republican dream, that and busting the unions, it's like Christmas for them.

You think the Camaro is expensive in china. Guess how much cars cost over in Vietnam, for the money they have. Your would be looking at like $40,000,000.

I did read the thread..

What I was trying to say is that someone who knows more about the cost of living etc, if you read my post I talked about that in Australia..maybe it wasn't clear enough.

If $200k = 30K US..that tells us that WE as AMERICANS could buy that 200k car in their prices over there but it would only cost us in reality 35k in OUR money.

So lets say the Average American makes $30k US a year.. that makes a $30k US car seem more attainable..and exactly as attainable at $200k their money.

Now if they make on average say $50k in their money a year, now $200k in their money seems much harder to achieve doesn't it? So thats why, evn though I DID read the thread and saw the exchange rate, it still doesn't tell me what really matters, and that is what kind of cost is $200k to them?

Simpley my point is they need to be making $200k on average a year over there for it to be AS affordable of a car, as it is here. Now I am not sure if that is the case, so people could be freaking out over nothing if they do indeed make that much on average (this was the case in australia, so I assumed the same for over in China) but on the other hand $200k could in fact be a lot of money to them and since I was not "positive" I put "someone who knows for sure can chime in"

I know there are LOTS of people who don't read threads and just post, but all of us out there aren't like that. Thanks for assuming I am an idiot and didn't read tho.

It's not because of the exchange rates.

There's a huge Tariff for vehicles not made in China, plus there's a tax on vehicles with engines over 1.6 litres. I haven't seen anything about 200,000 Camaros, I think that may just be a paying over MSRP for the new model sort of thing.

But from the AP:

"Priced between about $76,100 and $87,100, the Enclave is Buick’s first luxury SUV exported to China.


Dealers are taking “reservations” for the limited edition Cadillac CTS-V, which costs about $160,000, GM said
."

So you can see that typically the price ends up being around double. And those prices are American Dollars.
