    Camaro Prices for UK announced

    http://www.autocar.co.uk/car-news/ne...uk-%C2%A331755

    About 12% more expensive for a LHD Camaro than a RHD Mustang - and GM will wonder why sales are no more than a trickle!

    With it being LHD this sounds more like the question "a tree fell in the woods and there was no one around to hear it, did it make a sound?".

    meanwhile GM doesn't offer it on many LHD European markets.

    Maybe - the price has been set by GM Europe, aka Opel - it's probably at the same level as LHD mainland Europe as any Brits wishing to purchase can just go on a day trip to the Netherlands, order/buy one there and drive it back - at least they can until the Brexit date which is at least 2 years away.

    I'd be interested to know how the LHD mainland Europe pricing compares between Mustang and Camaro - since there's no criticism of the passenger steering there.

    It just kills me how they preemptively torpedo the business case.

    "We'll do RHD if the market demands it" then they proceed to sell only 18 cars from one lousy dealership with the steering wheel on the wrong side. Of course demand isn't going to be there.

    If they could go close to matching Mustang pricing in the UK and Aus i bet they could sell at the very least half the mustang volume

    better than 18 cars

    Meanwhile in Australia, the Mustang outsold the Fiesta by more than two to one in July! You snoozed GM, you're dead.
