Cool Official Camaro Site For Brazil Market Launched

GM has just launched this slick Brazilian Camaro website ahead of the start of sales in Brazil, the next market into which the Camaro will be exported.

You cannot build or price out a Camaro on the site just yet, but interested Brazilians can put themselves onto a notification list. There's also a technical/design highlights section, a cool Camaro history overview, photos, and even a neat engine sound sampler (complete with start-up and revving sounds).

The Camaro will launch in Brazil with the V8 model. No word yet if the V6 will also be available eventually.

Pricing is likely to be in the $70000-$90000 Reis range (about $39.4k USD).

Tran,

I know there will be huge interest but as far as the people I know and work with in Brazil, there will be limited purchases...

The guys on the oil rigs offshore that I work with are huge fans of my car,and several of them have pictures of my car on their facebook pages....or other web based social pages.

I hope that at least some of them will be able to manage to buy them eventually... Really good guys I work with...

Thanks for posting this up.

Bom Traballo

Bom Gia

I agree with that prediction. Perhaps if the V6 version was available, more regular income Brazilians would be able to afford the car. Hopefully the V6 model does make it there at some point.

I did that yesterday, and like I said before on my Thread, that would be the price range....

And I cant wait to see (and buy) this car, its my dreammm....

And I will be there in the 26Th International Automobile Trade Show in SAO PAULO to check this baby by my self, live !!!

There is a chance that the Price list could be offered in like $60.....just take a look on the Malibu price, its like $45k ...so, still, keep dreaming and waiting

Bom Trabalho! (Good Job)
Bom dia! (good morning)
and Take care! (Cuide-se)

I speak portuguese. The site doesn't do much yet.. $70,000 Reis (reals) is about $39,436 USD today. I've been there. This is an expensive car for them in my opinion. They could buy a nice house for the price of the car. Also I don't think the translated "gears" correctly under transmission in should be "marchas". Looking at it the whole translation is terrible, sorry.. But is someone using a machine translation or a human? I'm not trying to pick on it , I'd just like to see it done right..

The V-6 is plenty for them there. There are a lot of small economy cars there. When I went there for a month my rental was a 1.0 liter and a 3.0 liter was big engine there. Even the motorcylces had smaller engines. You didn't see to many big bikes. Gas is expensive there. The Camaro SS is expensive for them, the V-6 version is more affordable but still expensive.

That's converted into their money reals which is a lot for them anyway.. It would be like you spending $70K USD for your camaro. How hard would that be for you? Only very well off people there will ever be able to buy an SS. The average person would spend that money on a house there. There will probabaly be some import tax or tarrif making the car a little more expensive. On another note, I not could believe how much cheaper a Honda or a BMW was there. The US must tack on a pretty penny to the price of those cars here.

Sure if they offered a V-6 he/she might be able to afford it, and 300 HP is plenty for them compared to what is on the roads there.

Wow. Compaints about not having a V6. I bet there would be complaints if only a V6 was available and no V8. I guess the best solution is to offer both. That way they can decide what is enough for them.

I'm glad that you can speak Portuguese. frist, I do think that if they offer both version it would be easier and more rentable to GM cause more people could buy V6 and V8. Just look at Chevy Malibu price......

They are importing the Malibu LTZ since Jun and the price is very good, I can buy one, and tons of people sure can either.

The 2 LT V6 Camaro is almost the same price as Malibu is, so, it would sell like water...

The BIGGEST problem is that ANY Imported Car from NOrth america and Europe get 110% Taxes on the base car price....

The GM Brasil is trying to get over the bad image that they have about giving us bad quality cars for too much money. And I agree with them. Now they are trying to offer better car (malibu agains ford Fusion, Accord....). The camaro is the second new one that are coming. Next year the chevy Cruze will get here neither....

I really hope to see a Camaro V8 for a resonable price

PS: Only one car could go against the V6 here, it's the Volvo C30 T5, with 250hp....I was about to buy that car when I saw the frist information about the camaro comming to Brasil, in Feb. What is my point? There is market to a good sport car here, cause the C30 sell more than a 300 cars/month (its may seem to be a lot, but belive me, it is). But GM has to offer options to the client in my opnion.....

Btw, Dodge will also sell the Charger and Challenger here in the same time as the GM put Camaro....Ford already does it with the Mustang. That is why I dont think they are going to put premium on the car...will start the Muscles cars battle here, and who offer the better price has the biggest chance to win.

I am brazilian and there's no way the V8 Camaro is going to cost U$40,000 here, considering that the Malibu costs about U$47,000. This car is likely to cost between U$75,000-U$85,000. I really wish this was cheaper.

I know you know this, but you have to convert $40 USD to $70K Reais..
That's where the confusion is. When stating the price state the currency.

They should hire the two of you to fix the Portuguese on the website
