2012 Camaro UK Price


Chevrolet Camaro is finally ready to hit the British market in both coupe and convertible guises.

Priced at £34,995 for the Coupe or £39,995 for the soft-top Convertible model, the new Camaro offers great performance, stunning looks and incredible value for money. But it’s not completely on the line with the British definition of a fun sports car. Not may Brits understand the appeal of a muscle cars.

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.
