The Chevy Camaro by HSV isn't the perfect solution for Australia. Naturally, we'd prefer GM just make the damn thing RHD, but it has decided that in this generation it's not viable. As a fallback, this thoroughly developed and even locally crash-tested for ADR compliance solution is instead a better (and cheaper) option than other conversion jobs.
And it's impossible to argue that it's not a worthy addition to the performance-car fold.
There are plenty of cashed-up enthusiasts out there, and in a landscape where you see Mustangs on every second street corner, the Chevy starts to make some sense, if you're using the right-hand side of your brain. Plus, 86 grand doesn’t buy you anything European with this kind of muscle and presence, right?
