    HSV Camaro

    Just took the plunge and placed deposit on HSV Camaro in Red Hot.
    Will be interesting to see exactly what HSV comes up with.
    The do-gooders will probers remove the race mode on the exhaust or tame it down.
    Dealer only has 9 Camaro’s coming in this year all in different colours.Did I say I have the only RED one.
    Mine was the 4 deposit taken.
    Was originally after a GTSR just could not get a decent deal so gone to the future.
    Figure if I want more power will fit a Whipple Supercharger.
    Hopefully made the right decision.
    Have a VE Gts manual with 432 kw at the rear wheels for the last 10 years, Getting into trouble with the wife on my gear changes, gives her a headache!.
    Hard to please them as they say , Happy Wife Happy life.
    Will probably complain about whiplash from the auto next.

    Once righthand cars are finally produce and exported from the US, the conversion resale value will be less, BUT NOT THE ENJOYMENT..

    That's how I'd like it to read.
    There won't be a HSV badge on it so it shouldn't be known as a "HSV Camaro"


    Congrats on the purchase, they're certainly a head turner

    I wonder if I will still be allowed to a member of the HSV club?
    It will be like driving a SS commodore , and nothing wrong with them.
    Raises a lot of possible problems.
    Something wrong hear, will the Camaro have a individual build number?
    No better than a import, taking the excitement out of it.
    I never thought of it this way!

    Group A cars are allowed and they're Holden (remember they're a Contract build for Holden. HSV only did the final assesmbly and designed the body kit. Engine was done by HEC, Group A name was Holden and Holden funded the entire project) so i dont see why a Camaro by HSV would be turned away.

    Bit different as they were Commodore based and had HSV build plates, so clearly HSV cars despite some people saying they weren’t. These Camaro’s have Chevrolet badges and are converted by Walkinshaw Group, so not really an HSV car

    I'm pretty sure they're not going to build number them but could be wrong. They weren't even going to number the Sportscat's and they're more HSV than the Camaro and Silverado
