It’s rather difficult for a Chevrolet Camaro to be in Europe with canary yellow paint and Michigan plates, and not gain anybody’s attention. Especially photographers.
Maybe this Camaro was just stopping by for a Nurburgring run and would then come back to Michigan as seen (and heard) with the cloaked Z/28. However, one would think that any one of the dozens of spy photographers camping out the hailed racetrack would catch a glimpse of the pony car in the act and would post photos to the web within minutes. So, that theory is kind of checked off.
One obvious assumption comes to mind: a facelift. But honestly, the Camaro has been on sale for less than two full years. Is it already looking stale? Not really. However, there have been reports of interior upgrades arriving for the 2012 model year. Exterior upgrades, on the other hand, have gone unreported. So what’s going on here? And what’s this Camaro doing in Europe? Well, here’s our assumption:
The General’s Euro-spec. Camaro is slated to arrive in the Old World sometime in spring of 2011. With that in mind, this slightly different Camaro could very well be the European version. This assumption gains some steam when taking into account the larger side mirrors with built-in turn signal indicators, which are likely due to European transportation regulations. These visual updates could still very well make their way to the North American market, but we won’t know for sure until further details emerge.
