Race teams may want to hold off on any new vehicle purchases because the race-prepped Chevrolet Camaro GT4.R will soon be available for purchase.
“Right now, we’re basically in the process of getting back to a bunch of people who have been [inquiring] about when we will have cars,” Meagher said. “We’ve had interest in the U.S. and globally. We’re just trying to reach out to people who have reached out to us first. It’s tough, in terms of getting everyone the cars they want.”
Initially, eight to ten cars will be built and GM will manage the production of the racecar to coincide with demand. It’s not a quick process, however. Some components have a long lead time attached to them.
The Camaro GT4.R is Chevrolet’s entry into IMSA and World Challenge series, and it’s basically a race-ready version of the Camaro ZL1 1LE. It’s also the first turn-key race car from the brand built to global regulations. Meagher said plans for European sales are being discussed now, but it depends on the race car’s success in North America foremost.
