Is Chevy Bringing The Muscle Car Wars To Europe And Australia's Doorstep?

From drag strips in Texas to the English countryside and Australian outback.

When Ford announced that its Mustang would not only come to Europe but also be available in right-hand drive spec, gearheads everywhere rejoiced. Sure the muscle car isn’t as refined as many of Europe’s go-fast choices, but who cares when you have all of the drama of a 5.2-liter flat-crank V8? Given the success of the Mustang in Europe, it was only logical that Chevy would follow suit and give the Camaro a passport to collect European stamps with.

However, the Camaro had one major flaw that held it back when competing with the European Mustang: It wasn’t offered with the steering wheel on the right side of the car like the Mustang. But this may no longer be the case. Speaking to CarAdvice at the 2016 New York Auto Show, Camaro’s chief designer Al Oppenheiser said that Chevrolet is looking into the opportunities offered by right-hand drive markets like the UK and Australia. Currently, the Mustang is sold out in Australia until 2017, and there is no way that Chevy doesn’t want a part of that action. Although a timeline as to when a right-drive Camaro would be released is non-existent, we think they should do it because who doesn't love a muscle car war?
