Well..........the UK motoring press had nothing on the Camaro. All the GM news was regarding the WTCC concept. Nice, but it aint a Camaro!

I've even searched the internet. Again, not a thing

I guess one of the problems is the Camaro is now "old news". With the launch of Audi's R8 and the VW IROC concept, the Camaro wouldn't stand a chance of getting a look in. Shame, 'cos it would have been my car of the show.

I just hope the Camaro concept shows up at the Goodwood Festival of Speed, it's one of the few chances to see great concept cars in the metal in the UK. Our Motorshow is pretty lame these days

Post New Camaro also to be offered in the UK in 2009

Chevrolet unveils a convertible version of the Camaro at the Detroit motor show this weekend and is likely to put it, and a coupe version, on sale in the UK.

Although nothing official has been confirmed yet, insiders say the pair of retro muscle-cars look certain to head for the UK, and in right-hand-drive layout, too.

While it's too early for final power outputs and performance figures at the moment, the coupe that was unveiled last year used a 6.0-litre V8 developing 400bhp.

Production cars are likely to be similarly powerful, which means they'll shoot from 0-60mph in close to 4.0sec. In true muscle-car style, the pair will both be rear-wheel-drive.

The coupe will arrive first, at the beginning of 2009, while the convertible is likely to arrive in the summer of the same year. Expect to pay from around £30,000.

Wow.... $58,000 for a Camaro... I assume they are not going to be shooting for volume in the UK. Plus witht he price of Petrol over there... that will be one car with a high cost of ownership.

I'll believe it when I see it, but the rumour is getting stronger and stronger

The Holden Monaro (Pontiac GTO) sold over here for £36000, so I reckon the Camaro won't be any cheaper. And petrol is nearly £5/gallon, so it'll only sell in the hundred, not thousands.

Yeah that is very expensive. The best thing to do is buy this car in US (cheap prices, because of dollar) and then import it to Europe. The only problem is that we need to pay again 31% of tax on the invoice price.

I've done this with my Hummer H2 and I paid in total 45000€.

For the petrol price. We have in Europe LPG and this price is very cheap. With this it's even cheaper then the gas in US. 0,35€/liter.

Greetings
