I think not.
It has an electronic hand brake



So looking at the photo, it would make very little difference whether it was LHD or RHD.

And even better on RHD GT500's... As the button will be on the driver's side.

Predictable.

There can be issues with lighter colours like bone and what not giving nasty reflections off the windscreen.
I don't know if that's the case here of just Ford sticking with interior colours that have worked previously
Given the expected haughty US price and low volume, Ford will probably want to simplify the build order as much as possible.

Perhaps you could find something better to do then, or would you like some time off to think about it?

Well guys , the opportunity is there for some if they've got the financials and craving to do it. Going by what I've read the U.S. built GT's and Ecoboosts for the domestic market there have fit and finish issues at times like everybody else so whether they're built in the States may or not may not adversely affect the car's build quality . How is that in regard to the Shelby stuff I have no idea.

I'm thinking given the relatively small numbers of 350's and 500's converted here that greater attention to that issue might not be a bad thing . It would be interesting to find out how that goes with the HSV converted Camaro's .

In the States and Canada the dealers almost never sell the premium Mustangs ie 350's/500's at sticker price . They can basically add thousands as they see fit . That might happen here too if or when demand for these pony's happens in the next year or two .

The Shelbys are built down the Flat Rock production line with all the other Mustangs

The only things that can be adjusted post factory is bolt on panel gaps and
possibly ill fitting trim panels. Knowing the way HSV goes over their cars,
I'd say that owners will be more than satisfied by the personal touches that
each Camaro gets.

You bet, the price is the price and they don't convert a car on spec. without a buyer and deposit.

S197 didn't have leaf springs...it was a three link with coils and panhard rod set up.
but i bet you knew that.....

The stupid part was that the program director tore up a perfectly good IRS to save money
and it actually ended up costing them more to make the SRA liveable by modern standards.

Just on competition to RHD GT500, does anyone know if HSV has confirmed any plans for a RHD Camaro ZL1?
That would make an interesting match up...
