Stocks of the locally-converted Chevrolet Camaro are starting to run thin.

Buyers keen to get their hands on the General Motors rival to the Ford Mustang will need to move fast – just a few months worth of Camaro SS and ZL1 supply remains at dealers, and the right-hand drive conversion program has officially ended.

Holden Special Vehicles (HSV) this morning confirmed it won’t convert any more 2020 models, and there are no plans to work on the 2021 car.

However it hasn’t ruled out bringing the Camaro back in the future, should General Motors develop another one.

A report from Muscle Cars & Trucks last year claimed Camaro development has been “suspended, and the nameplate will likely be shelved once again after 2023”.

The regular Chevrolet Camaro 2SS is powered by a 6.2-litre LT1 V8 engine making 339kW of power and 617Nm of torque, while the ZL1 1LE pumps out a whopping 477kW and 881Nm from its supercharged V8.

Pricing for the former kicks off at $86,990 before on-road costs, while the fire-breathing ZL1 starts at $159,900 before on-roads.

Although the Camaro program is wrapping up, HSV is now getting ready to roll out the Silverado pickup truck.

Pricing for the Ram 1500 rival was announced last week. It’ll start at $113,990 before on-road costs, making it more than $10,000 pricier than the range-topping Ram.

However the Silverado is a far newer truck, and offers technology its American rival can’t.
