2012 COPO CAMARO UPDATE

It looks like COPO 37 should be in my garage some time in Sept. or October. This is a Summit white car with the 4.0 blower and optional COPO graphic's package. I can't wait! If the car comes in before the Fall Classic Camaro show in Ohio it will be there!

GM had one in their display for Power Tour.
I asked the girl there if she was the one that got rubber all over the rear quarter panel.
She said "I wish".

OMG! It would be great to be able to afford a $90,000 Camaro that's stupid-fast but not even street legal.

Supposedly GM wont give how many HP it actually produces, but claims have been made that it hit 900HP. 1/4 time is 9.69 @ 140mph.

$90k and not street legal to only run mid 9s?
I sure hope they were babying the car on that run.

Did you not read the article in the link Rat posted in post #5?

Up until this moment you’ve seen Summit White as the only flavor of the COPO, but now we are proud to share photos of painted bodies in the other official colors: Black, Victory Red, Silver Ice Metallic and Ashen Gray Metallic.

It WILL be quicker than mid 9's! The Stangs have hit the 8's and Chevys not playing second fiddle...give it time.

Mid 9s is a bad thing? I'd like to see your car do it. 90k isn't bad at all for a factory built class car. It was built for NHRA and IHRA stock and super stock.

On a side note....
As for the fords going in the 8s....that's irrelevant unless they are running the same class. Overall everyone seems to forget that in stock and super stock you are running as far under your index as you can give ln the constraints of the class. Educate yourself on how class racing works before you claim the COPO is slow

Sorry, but with 90k I'd get a new Z06 BlacK Edition, ZL1, 13 GT500, or 392 Chally Yellow Jacket

Anyone of those cars would not be able to run the same NHRA classes nor be competitive
So what's your point?

Because some people just miss the point of a race car.

My street car has 800hp!!....ok...but its still a street car.

Until someone has a race car....they will never understand

1st of all, I know how to read and comprehend very well. I could care less if they would be competitive or not. For a NHRA Class vehicle its awesome & what i mentioned were all street legal. Didn't know my personal opinion offended you to that degree

My point being, I'd Rather Have Those Vehicles. It's simple & nothing hard to understand
