Brawn in the USA… and coming here

Chevrolet Camaro
Magnificent muscle motor... if you like that sort of thing!

IT was one of the cars which gave muscle cars their name in the good old U S of A… and it’s heading for these shores.
UK fans of American muscle motors will be salivating to know that of the iconic cars which were kings of the Stateside roads during the 1960s is now available to order here. The latest incarnation of the legendary Chevrolet Camaro arrives in late spring.
Coming in two versions — the coupe at £34,995 and the soft top convertible at £39,950 — the latest Camaro reflects the tradition that made the original famous — power, great looks and value for money.
In addition to the standard models, Chevrolet is also offering, for a limited time only, the 2012 45th anniversary Camaro, finished in striking Carbon Flash Black with bespoke red and silver anniversary stripes, dark silver 20-inch alloys, a unique 45th anniversary leather interior with red, white and blue stitching and a one-off white-backed instrument panel. It’s priced at £36,495 for the Coupe or £41,495 for the Convertible.
All models come with a six-speed manual gearbox, but are available with a six-speed automatic transmission as a £1,500 option.
Power comes from a 6.2-litre V8 engine developing 432PS (405PS auto), with 0-62mph acceleration between 5.2 seconds (manual Coupe) and 5.6 seconds (auto Convertible). All Camaros have an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. A full spec table appears below.
