The Chevrolet COPO Camaro is a purpose built vehicle meant for one thing: Drag Racing. The COPO Camaro debuted at the 2011 SEMA show as a concept, and since then we have heard little of the drag racers fate, but today Chevrolet announced that they will be building 69 of the performance driven cars in 2012.
Meant for the NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes, the COPO Camaro will be the fastest Camaro built to date. There will be three engine options available for the drag racing Camaro, a naturally aspirated 7.0L V8, a 5.3L V8 featuring a 2.9L supercharger, and another 5.3L V8, this one featuring a 4.0L supercharger.
“The COPO Camaro is going to shake up the sportsman drag racing ranks this summer and give Chevy fans a great new reason to cheer on the Bowtie,” said Jim Campbell, the General Motors U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports.
