Chevrolet Camaro heading to UK

One car is set to provide a buzz at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this week-end, as Chevrolet announces that its Camaro will be launched in the UK.

Building on Chevrolet’s iconic US heritage, the retro-styled Camaro has been on sale in the USA since 2009, and has already seen sales in excess of 200,000 sales.

And very soon, those waiting to get their hands on a Camaro in the UK will have reason to celebrate – the car will go on sale during the first half of 2011.

With looks that draw heavily from the styling of the 1967-69 Camaro, the car is a full four-seater, with an interior that also takes significant cues from the look of its forebears.

The Camaro will be available only in top level V8 trim – the 6.2 litre 426 bhp powerplant is as much of a legend as the Camaro itself. It promises a top speed electronically limited to 155 mph, and a 0-60 mph time of less than five seconds, coupled to a dynamic chassis that, thankfully, owes little to the layout of the more traditional muscle cars.
