While GM announced the demise of the historic Holden brand locally in Australia and New Zealand, it plans to create General Motors Special Vehicles to handle Corvette sales.
This past weekend during a virtual Corvette presentation in lieu of Corvettes at Carlisle, the car’s chief engineer Tadge Juechter and product manager Harlan Charles said the team is already testing the C8 Corvette Stingray in right-hand drive after the automaker built a handful of pre-production cars.
Down in Australia, where Holden welcomed the coming Corvette, General Motors Special Vehicles will instead handle the RHD sports car.
With Holden’s demise, GMSV will handle sales and some local conversions of left-hand drive vehicles, namely the Chevrolet Silverado.
We’ve heard for a long time that General Motors is planning to make the Chevrolet Corvette a global sports car with the availability of right-hand drive, but now it’s actually happening. For real.
