The fifth generation of that other legendary car was launched on China by Shanghai GM. Ample 50s cues were not spared. Rock’n’Roll and a historic Camaro were on hand that had served as the official pace car of the 1967 Indy 500.
The 60s don’t make the hearts pound in a Chinese – unless accompanied by a rendition of “The East is Red.”
What they get are the Transformers. Now THAT works in China.
Like the Beetle, the Camaro will not be built in China. It’s an import with a hefty price of RMB 455,800 (roundabout $70,000) for the 3.6-liter model.
