GMPP Posts Official Copo Camaro First Runs Video!
 
The official Chevrolet Performance video of the initial COPO Camaro concept testing.

info from an earlier post:

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.

If it's gonna run A/S, or A/SA it will run 10.0's since the record is 9.94 in A/S, and 10.05 in A/SA. If it's any faster than that, it's not NHRA legal, which would be a huge problem since NHRA class racing is exactly what these cars are being built for.
