Two of these engines have future Z28 written all over them



The three engines offered in the COPO Camaro program were developed to align with the top classes in NHRA’s various Stock Eliminator and Super Stock ranks. They are:
  • An LS7-based naturally aspirated 427 (7.0L) V-8
  • A supercharged, LSX-based 327 (5.3L) V-8 featuring a 2.9L supercharger
  • A supercharged, LSX-based 327 (5.3L) V-8 featuring a 4.0L supercharger

Highlights of the new COPO Camaro program include:
  • A sequenced build number matched to the engine but sold without a Vehicle Identification Number and cannot be registered for highway use
  • Three racing-class engine are available, including a naturally aspirated 427 (7.0L) and two supercharged 327 (5.3L) V-8 engines
  • Engine assembly at GM’s Performance Build Center, where the buyer can opt to participate in the engine assembly similar to Chevrolet’s Corvette Engine Build Experience and the Chevrolet Performance Build Your Own Crate Engine programs
  • Engines pairing with a Powerglide automatic transmission designed for drag racing
  • Five colors: Flat Black, Summit White, Victory Red, Silver Ice Metallic and Ashen Gray Metallic
  • A COPO graphics package similar to the one introduced on the concept vehicle available in Metallic White, Semi-Gloss Black, Inferno Orange Metallic and Chevy Racing Blue
  • Pricing starting at $89,000
  • A special collector’s package offering the purchase of all three engines with the COPO Camaro – including one installed in the car at delivery – with each engine serial number matched to the car

I'm not generally one to bash, but if that's the actual price that it absolutely ludicrous for what the car is. Chevy's just trying to cash in on the COPO name, and "Camaro History" here...

actually if you figure out the percentage difference from the orginal SS in 1969 vs the 1969 COPO price. The 89K is pretty damn close in todays market for 2012 LS3 SS vs 2012 COPO

1969 sport coupe Camaro = $2,7xx in 1969
1969 Hi Perf COPO Camaro = $7,0xx sticker price with the aluminum 427.

Thats about 160% mark up in the SS price in 1969.

Todays figures: 2012 1SS LS3 BASE = 31,980 X 2.60% = $83148 That value would increase considerably if you wanted to compare the 2SS RS cars.

Well I guess mathematically you are correct by todays inflation numbers... But still for that price, I could probably build 2 that would preform equally well... This is just a collectors piece, and a get rich scheme for GM at that price.

Does anyone know approximate HP figures for those engines? Maybe I'll get one to beef up my wife's mini-van.
