Update - Our good friend Vibhor from TheAutomotiveIndia.com has already spotted the Chevrolet Camaro once in Delhi. The vehicle looks similar to the example that was on view at the 2010 Delhi Auto Expo. Images inserted after the jump.
Our good friends at Supercar Paparazzi (Facebook fanpage) have been tracking exotics and supercars on Mumbai roads like the proposed world ending this year will take them away forever. We believe the Camaro is among the highly elite list of halo cars in the world featuring models such as the Bugatti Veyron and the SLS AMG.
The newest addition to that enviable image collection is the Chevrolet Camaro shot on the roads of Mumbai. The Camaro came under heavy limelight after the astounding success of the Transformer franchise. This example is seen sporting Dubai registered number plates meaning it may be here only for a short stint.
No one benefited more than GM through the success of the movie as fans amazed by the formation of the Autobots bought Chevys that could fit their budgets (Spark, Aveo, Cruze, whichever!) and sent it to the garage where a coat of yellow paint and dual stripes sat on the car.

GM India may have missed using the Transformers' popularity in India to their benefit but there were plenty of striping and yellow painting in other parts of the world.
The Camaro was brought to the Auto Expo back in 2008 followed by the showcasing of the convertible edition at the 2010 installment. General Motors may not launch the Camaro in India unless a RHD version is available, which is a possibility only with the next generation model that is at least four years away.
