HSV flexes vehicle conversion muscle with Ford Mustang-rivalling Chevrolet Camaro

AUSSIES have been without a rear-drive V8 from General Motors for a year now since the cessation of local production of the Commodore.
Some V8-hungry buyers have been satiated by Ford’s sixth-generation Mustang that launched locally in 2016, and it has quickly become the country‘s most popular sportscar.
But what about the General Motors faithful, those who swear loyalty to the legendary LS V8?
Like before, it is Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) that is coming to the rescue and flying the flag for General Motors' performance hero in Australia.
Unlike before though, the new rear-drive, V8 kid on the block is a sleek two-door coupe. The iconic Camaro, imported from Chevrolet and converted to right-hand drive by HSV.
Is this still a winning formula in 2018 or has the world moved beyond the simple pleasures that HSV and the Chevrolet Camaro can offer?
