General Motors has zero plans to produce the sixth-generation Chevrolet Camaro in right-hand drive for select markets, but an Australian conversion company wants to sew the steering wheel on the opposite side for those who can afford it.
Wheels reports Melbourne-based Crossover Car Conversions (CCC) will take care of importing a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 and do all the necessary work to convert the car to RHD for a final sum of $150,000 AUD, or about $114,000 USD. That’s 2017 HSV GTSR W1 territory.
CCC will snag a 2017 Camaro ZL1 ($60,000) and ship it over ($3,800) to the land down under, but the interested party will have to fork over about $13,000 in import fees and taxes just to let the Camaro touch land as well. All of that cash is before CCC even begins its work.
The work itself consists of re-engineering and converting the car for another $33,500 and takes eight to ten weeks to complete. That’s after waiting six months for the Camaro ZL1 to reach Oz.
GM has reportedly given the green light for the seventh-generation Chevrolet Camaro to support RHD from the factory, which means an Australian launch may be imminent early next decade. However, in the meantime, and if you have the cash, you’ll score quite a conversation piece with a 2017 Chevrolet Camaro ZL1.
