V8-powered retro muscle car confirmed for sale with full Chevrolet warranty.

The Camaro’s set to muscle in to the UK. Chevrolet has used the first ever Moving Motor Show at Goodwood, to announce that the V8-powered retro coupe will go on sale in May 2011, due to be followed by the drop-top version later in the year.

Only available in top-level SS trim, all cars will feature a 426bhp 6.2-litre V8 which allows the car to sprint from 0-60mph in 4.9 seconds and hit a limited top speed of 155mph.

For the time being, all cars will be left-hand drive only, with the firm planning to sell 100 cars per year. The price is yet to be finalised as it is dependent on the exchange rate, but its thought that the car will be priced to rival the Nissan 370Z, which starts at £28,345. It will also be sold with a full manufacturers’ warranty.

Lazy gits, how hard is it to change to RHD? If they did they would maybe sell 500 per year, making it worthwhile! I know there are companies here that do it for a couple of grand, if it was done during production, this cost would be minimal and they could add it to the ticket price.
