The Chevrolet Camaro muscle car could replace the Holden Commodore on the racetrack and go head-to-head with the Ford Mustang as early as next year's V8 Supercar championship according to a secret proposal seen by CarAdvice.
The rollout of the local racing program for the American Camaro is part of a confidential plan to establish a new niche brand called General Motors Specialty Vehicles (GMSV).
First Chevrolet Corvette C8 sells for $3 million at auction in the US
The first 2020 Chevrolet Corvette C8 has sold at auction for US$3 million (AUD$4.34 million).

Australian pricing for the new Corvette is yet to be announced, but last month Holden teased us with a photo of a car being tested at its engineering facility in Lang Lang south-east of Melbourne, ahead of its scheduled showroom arrival next year.
