Chevrolet Camaro ‘Transformers’ edition
Sure there is no dearth of performance cars in India with almost all the premium car makers having set shop in the country. However, there are not many options if someone wants to buy something classy and exclusive without having to spend a fortune on it. It seems GM India is planning to bring all those woes to an end now.
The company is planning to bring its iconic Camaro sports car to the country. The Camaro, along with the Ford Mustang is regarded as the ambassador of Amercian muscle cars. The muscular looking car will be brought to Indian first in the two-door coupe guise. GM India has displayed the car in the 2010 Auto Expo as well.
Although the price if the car or the launch date has not been unveiled yet, the arrival of the exotic on our shores is a surety. We are expecting a price in the region of Rs 30-35 lakh. And for a car of the Camaro’s size, presence and performance, that sounds like just a small price to pay.
Although it should, we are not sure whether the Camaro will do any great numbers in the country. However, the introduction of the legendary car will surely help Chevrolet create a premium image for itself.
Internationally the Camaro is available in LS and LT models, powered by a 3.6 L V6 producing 312 horses, mated to either a 6-speed manual or a 6-speed automatic with manual shift. The there is the special SS version which is powered by a 6.2-litre V8 producing 426 hp and is mated to a 6-speed manual box.
