I can see this in the 60s. I can also see it in the 50s but if this is the bad boy they are hyping then it will most definitely push 70+ and right out of my life
COPO isnt a production car. So the Z28 will still be the most expensive.

The old rule I always knew that to qualify as a production car to race in stock classes the minimum build was 50 cars.

This was to prevent manufacturers from building wild one offs to to race in competition.

I have not heard of anything different but i have also not followed the NHRA sportsman racers as closely as i used too the last few years.

My comment has nothing to do with the way NHRA looks at "stock".

The argument is over is it a "production car?"

I said the NHRA views it as a production car. The words from the GM exec was "most expensive Camaro produced"

Despite what you think the COPO was a production run with options for the buyer. It was extremely limited but that was per NHRA rules.

It had its own special assembly point but i don't see how that is any different than the LS7 being hand built at its own special location.

As for the other part of my price equation - the Z07. It is a pretty expensive package that included aero improvements and carbon ceramic brakes. The Z07's MSRP was about 90k.

Then I made the guess that the price is probably 86,500 because it is more expensive than a COPO and featured some of the "extras" a Z07 had on it.

I stand by that MSRP considering it is a guess and nothing more.

As I said before you have some homework to do...

...regarding your guess the base Corvette was $50K, the base Camaro $23K. Throw on the upgrades and your not anywhere near a Z07.
