Any ZL1s in the UK?

The subject covers my question really

To be a bit more detailed, I've been after a Camaro since the concept was shown in 2006. I've never really been in a position to do it, and I've been happy with the Monaro in the garage. However, after covering a lofty 66 miles in the past 12 months, I'm wondering whether it's time to consider a change.

Such is the way of things, I can never own the base model - and whilst the Z28 could be considered top-dog, I really like the ZL1. I could import - maybe wait a couple of years until the next-gen car comes about and snag a relative bargain then... or not. I know we'll never see a UK car and those new rear tails are hideous!

So, anyone done it? A chap round here had a 2SS for a couple of years and I even managed a drive, but I've not heard of anyone brave enough to bring in the ZL1. :p

The David Boatwright Partnership in Braintree Essex, would be happy to find you one I'm sure. I had mine imported in 2011, specifically ordering a V6, not wanting to pay stupid fuel bills. The cost in the UK, seems to be equal to the amount in dollars in the 'states, once all the taxes etc. are added.

Thanks redleader - your links page gives me a page not found error - but it's a good site none the less.

I've used the usual UK sites - but the ZL1 itself (other than the yellow car) seems to be something we aren't interested in, or can't get hold of (the ZR1 at least came here - and was at Goodwood the last couple of years).

I'll let you guys know how I get on.
