Chevrolet Camaro to go on Sale in the UK in 2011

Already confirmed for the rest of Europe, GM today announced that the Camaro will also go on sale in the UK as an official Chevrolet, complete with full manufacturer warranty, during the first half of 2011.

The retro-style muscle car will be available in the UK exclusively with the 6.2-litre V8 powerplant that produces 426bhp propelling the coupe from zero to 60mph in under 5.0 seconds and on to an electronically limited top speed of 155mph. General Motors did not mention in the press release if the Camaro will be offered in right-hand or left-hand drive in the UK.

According to the automaker, final specification details and prices will be announced closer to the car's 2011 launch.

British motorists will have a chance to see the new Camaro in Bumblebee trim at this week's Goodwood Festival of Speed.
