First COPO Camaro Concept Drag Runs!

Posted by: admin In: Main ()

The COPO Camaro concept [official info] was revealed at the recent SEMA Show and it’s now made its first drag runs!

The COPO Camaro is a concept designed to the specifications for NHRA Stock Eliminator drag racing competition. It’s designed to accommodate more than one engine option, including a naturally aspirated 427 engine (7.0L) – the same displacement as the original COPO Camaros from 1969 – and a supercharged 327 (5.3L) engine. Among the many racing-specific features and equipment is a conversion from the Camaro’s standard independent rear axle to a solid axle, as well as a full chrome moly roll cage.

So, how’d it do?? The first hit off the trailer was a 9.90 at 138 MPH, with several subsequent passes in the 9.70′s. The COPO Camaro’s best run was a 9.69 at 140, with 60 foot times in the low 1.40′s.
