Holden fans rev up: V8-powered Chevrolet Camaro confirmed
user posted image

DIEHARD Holden V8 fans have a reason to cheer, even as they prepare to farewell the homegrown Commodore.

The iconic Chevrolet Camaro muscle car will fill the V8 void in Holden showrooms next year, almost five years ahead of schedule - and ahead of the next generation flagship Corvette sports car due in 2020.

These exclusive photos show Holden is preparing to import the Camaro SS and have it converted to right-hand-drive in Melbourne by its longstanding performance-car partner Holden Special Vehicles.

The two Camaros caught on camera near HSV's secret engineering centre are yet to be switched to right-hand-drive, but the plans are well progressed, with direct support from Detroit.

Holden wasn't supposed to get the Camaro until the next generation due in 2022, when it will be built in right-hand-drive on the North American production line for the first time.

But the runaway success of the Ford Mustang - the Camaro's arch rival - has seen Holden pull out all stops to get the Chevrolet into local showrooms as soon as possible.

Good to see a bit of competition for the Mustang, eh? http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/Smiley_winknod.gif

Yes it is. Don't know if it will be as popular as the Mustang, but some competition has to be better than none. http://fairdinkumnewschat.b1.jcink.com/uploads/fairdinkumnewschat/smiley_don_t_know.gif

Problem is that both models and the Mopar vehicle are all designed for the enthusiast, not very practical as family or business type vehicles. IMHO

True Mick. They are only for a limited market.
