Camaro Officially Named 科迈罗 (Ke Mai Luo) for China
Earlier today, SGM announced that Chevrolet will introduce the legendary Camaro sports car at Auto Shanghai 2011 in April. The Camaro will have a sonorous Chinese name - 科迈罗 (Ke Mai Luo). The Ke Mai Luo with a 3.6-liter engine will be priced around RMB 500,000.
In recent years, China's luxury sports car market has been flourishing, highlighted by the midsize luxury segment (priced at RMB 400,000--800,000), which grew 141% in 2010. At present, this segment is dominated by cars with European design. The Camaro, with its "masculine" styling, will be a welcome addition.
Is it only going in V6 trim? I think everyone should be able to experience the awesome that is the LS3.
They sell the Camaro in Korea as V6 only as well. There are very very few V8 vehicles in China. They are extremely expensive to purchase and fuel. I think the only V8 GM sells in China is the Escalade which is about $140k US there.
