The UK Camaro will be priced above its Zeta-platform cousin, the Vauxhall VXR8, when it arrives on British shores in the first part of 2010. The translation to RHD won't harm the car's power, as the models expected to be brought in to the UK are of the 400hp, 6.0L V8 variety, reports Autocar. So far there has been no talk of the V6 and rumored turbo four-cylinder making the trip across the Atlantic. What will be making the trip intact, however, is the Chevrolet nameplate.
Original plans to bring the Camaro to Europe had shied away from using the Chevrolet brand for the car, since it is more strongly associated with budget cars in the UK than it is in the U.S. That's changed, however, as GM has decided to expand its Chevrolet brand in the UK, doubling its models there by 2012.
