But now these spy photos, taken by an amateur photographer, capture a group of the latest Chevy Camaro test cars undergoing testing recently outside Melbourne, Australia.

Army of Camaro's

The new Chevrolet Camaro is awaited with great anticipation by pretty much the entire North American continent, but that is not where the new classic muscle car is at the moment. GM is doing rigorous testing in Australia, where GM subsidiary Holden is building the car.

An amateur photographer spotted a small army of Camaro prototypes on the roads outside of Melbourne and shot them again when they parked after following them. We are expecting the Chevy Camaro to make its official debut at Detroit in January, just like the concept back in 2006.

The Camaro seems almost production ready and sales are expected to start sometime in 2008 as a 2009 model. The convertible is expected to follow in about a year.

Notice how GM has taken along some Mustangs (cabrio and coupe) for benchmarking purposes.
