I have Driven a Camaro V6 Convertible for about 500 Miles - Trust me, even the smaller sibling is Crazy Fast - You have to work hard to keep her in control - a slight tap and you hit 120mph easily.

Mustang on the other hand was easier to throw around the other cars on the Freeways here

Super Catch.

I love the 4 brothers from US in this exact sequence (Corvette, Mustang, Camaro & Charger). They have an amazingly muscular charm which is as raw as it can get and except Corvette all others are within range of normal folks like us

I spotted this 2012 Dodge Charger outside Space Needle in Seattle 2 weeks back. Loved that burnt orange color and boy' it does have a presence.

I think it was the top spec'd version with 6L, V8 with 470+ HP

The price of a good spec V8 Camaro would be high enough to ensure the sales figures dont go into double digits. We know the fate the Mitsubishi Evo X suffered.

Chevy is working on the RHD version for other key markets..

Nope, that is a base charger. The top spec'd one has SRT badges on the fender and the grille, But even the base version has road presence

Thats a Silver Ice Metallic Camaro LT,3.6L,V6,323BHP gross, 6spd Tapshift.
19"Pirelis are Standard Equipment for UAE cars.0-100Kph at 6.3 sec.If it is a 2012MY you get rear cam,short diameter steering wheel.
RS pack is a better buy on the V6.
LT = AED 132900.00
RS = AED 145000.00
SS = AED 185000.00
ZL1's expected for November GCC specifications.

LHD cars can be imported to India for a period of 6-11 months and have to be taken back after that. The scheme is called carnet.

I wanted to this ask question before but didn't and now seeing that thread has already reached it's second page, my apprehension is even greater but I will still ask this question.

Is this Car special enough to call for a separate thread? While other more expensive/exotics cars are documented in the city specific threads. Do let me know in case I am missing something here.

This thread is created because there is no dedicated Thread for Mumbai.

I guess we should have a thread for Mumbai so that we can avoid creating N number of threads when ever there is a new car in the city.

Mods please do the needful

Now that's odd!

There was always a thread for Mumbai spottings, seems like after the recent name change of the threads it's missing.

Anyway it doesn't make any sense to not have one, are we suppose to create separate thread for every spotting?

No there isn't any thread for Mumbai spottings, if you search the forum you'll find threads of Italia, sls , Jaguar etc etc

There is always a new thread created when ever there is a new car in Mumbai

Just a suggestion to Mods:

Isnt it better to create threads atleast based on manufacturers? Like all Merc in one thread instead of having different threads for C AMG, E AMG, SLS, S65 AMG etc.

If reason for not creating one Mumbai thread is cos of the huge number of imports in mumbai, we can still have a collective thread based on manufacturer name right?
