In some countrys in Europe the annual tax is approx 2500$ or probably more for the 376 CID(6162CMC)!
P.S. I heard that they are trying to introduce somwhat of a tax like this in USA....maybe GM knows something about it....
The camaro is already available in Europe. All camaros that I saw while living in Germany were the top trim v8 models. In addition, while gas is taxed at a significantly higher rate to subsidize alternative energy, I did not need to drive nearly as much there as in the US. I actually paid much less for fuel there than here. I guess what I am getting at is the camaro is probably just as much of a niche market in Europe.
