Perhaps we will see a C8 at Wakefield in the near further.
 From what Iíve read the c8 is a 100 kw down on the ZL1 Camaro . I would think it wonít be long before the Z06 version hits the production line.

Just Like to mention how enjoyable this chat has been from the start
Shows the forum can work well when its used in a good way.
This C8 is a whole new ball game so to speak even feedback from the yanks
has them excited  as well it could end up the biggest seller ever.
If they want to sell them here  then they better be fair with the overall cost
and back up maintanence and service

I did hear mention of a twin turbo 6.2 motor in the not so distant future , 1000 HP but who knows . GM have been very secretive. Ray .and yes great to see how much excitement this new model has stirred up

I noticed a c7 that has been for sale for some time has dropped it asking price considerably this week. As the C8 release in aus gets closer there will be  more of the c6/c7`s for sale at lowering prices.

Yes these C6 and C7 for over $150k even the z06 C7 will drop like the mustangs did when the RHD ones came out

Wont effect the older LHD cars just the ones that have high conversion costs

Even Performax sold their Z06 C6 for under 180k and a LHD c7 for Under $75k
