Thumbs up First Official Video of COPO Camaro Drag Runs and Testing! (from GMPP)


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE

The official Chevrolet Performance video of the initial COPO Camaro concept testing.

info from an earlier post:
Quote:
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.

Awesome looking Copo Camaro. It's totally worth producing again! These truly are the next-era muscle car years, let us seize the day! Please produce them, we will come!

I believe the 327 can be had or rather will be offered with two different size blowers.

The first 2 engines for the COPO Camaro Concept were discussed at SEMA-

The first is a naturally aspirated 427 for A Stock.

The second is a supercharged 327, with a 2.9 blower, which would compete in AA Stock.

The third engine was announced at PRI. It is a supercharged 327 but with a 4.0 blower, which would compete in A Super Stock. Please see the attached link for the press release:

Holy Jesus... It makes the ZL1 look like an everyday car! I wonder how much coin is invested with the Vette engine...

ugh, this car makes me so angry. If you remember the original copo it was the most baseline stock looking body with the massive engine, and they were street cars. now its a fricken race car with a huge cowl and stripies. i like the car, i just hate that they put the COPO name on it. they need to take the name off and put it on a V6 camaro body with the 427 or something.

+1! A v6 body w/ a 427 would be AWESOME!
