While most of the commotion at the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro unveiling was around, well, the 2016 Camaro, we decided to poke around for a few answers on where Holden’s promised V8 sports car stands.
Our gut feeling was an all-new Holden Monaro, via a sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro in right-hand drive guise, but according to our sources it’s highly unlikely to happen. At least anytime soon.
Holden has publicly committed to a rear-wheel drive V8 sports car multiple times in the past, which leads us to believe to 2016 C7 Corvette Stingray may actually be the real contender after all. Though, we’ve also received intel from Bowling Green, home of Corvette production, stating the complications with producing the 2016 C7 Corvette in right-hand drive configuration.
It truly sounds like a toss up at this point in time. Or perhaps development is very early on in a RHD program for either car, with no significant information to surface at this point in time. Though, General Motors may have a wildcard up their sleeve.
But, we digress. It’s most likely the 2016 Camaro or 2016 C7 Corvette will find its way to Aussie shores. Our mates down under may just have to wait for some time.
