Chevrolet Camaro COPO is the final version of the fifth-generation Camaro and
the fourth edition of the limited-production, factory-built race car. As with
the previous three model years, only 69 will be built.
The new race cars will enter the 2015 racing season building on the momentum of Camaro COPO racer Bruno Massel's historic win at last summer's Chevrolet Performance U.S. Nationals, in Indianapolis. It was the first NHRA national event victory for a fifth-generation Camaro COPO and topped a roster of seven additional class wins by drivers in Camaro COPO or COPO-powered race cars.
"The Camaro COPO allows sportsman racers to compete directly in NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes," said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. "Every win advances the COPO racing legacy established 45 years ago and reinforces Chevrolet's position today as America's leading performance car brand."
Abalone White Exterior Color
The 2015 COPO Camaro on display this week at the SEMA Show features an Abalone White exterior with gray and orange accents and all-new COPO graphics - and is powered by a 350 "LSX" V-8 with a 2.9L Whipple supercharger.
Each Camaro COPO is Hand-Built
Each Camaro COPO race car is built by hand starting with production hardware, including the same body in white used for production models.
The production race cars are fitted with an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment, along with racing chassis and suspension components - including a unique solid rear axle system in place of a regular-production Camaro's independent rear axle.
Customers can select from a variety of supercharged and naturally aspirated LS-family engines based on their intended NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes, including 350, 396 and 427 naturally aspirated engines and a supercharged 350.
