Holden Camaro edges closer to reality, prototypes spotted

Spy photographers have spotted Chevrolet Camaro prototypes in and around HSV’s headquarters in Melbourne, further fuelling a long-held speculation – and our strong belief – that the Camaro will eventually launch in Australia.

Spy photos, that we don’t have access to, show two Camaro examples in pretty much Chevrolet guise. However, it’s understood these will eventually be converted to right-hand drive and backed by GM in America.

What’s unknown at this point is what badge the models will wear. We believe the muscle car will be called the Holden Camaro, while any performance editions, including, hopefully, the ZL1 1LE as pictured here, might adopt ‘Holden Camaro HSV’, or some variation.

The modern Camaro is of course more home grown than you might think, with its underpinnings developed right here in Australia. The previous (2010-2015) generation used GM’s Zeta platform which underpins the local Holden VF Commodore, although the current Camaro uses the newer Alpha platform.

There is the possibility Chevrolet is simply doing some testing in Australia as international GM vehicles have been spotted in Australia before. However, being the home of Holden Camaro, we have our fingers tightly crossed. Stay tuned for plenty more news and coverage as we follow this journey through.
