2010 COPO Camaro...Want one?!

At the risk of riling the Gods, there has been much speculation and wishful thinking about the possibility of a "for real", Dealer-available version of the SEMA COPO Camaro.

Please consider the following questions:

What should it's "Basic Package" be?

1) 1SS
2) 2SS

What should it be powered by?

3) LS7 (+ $15K, warranteed)
4)LSA/LS9 (+ $25K, warranteed)

Transmission?

5) Stick
6) Automatic

Dovetail Spoiler/carbon fibre Hood as part of the "Package" which, for obvious reasons, will NOT be called "COPO"...

Thanks for your feedback. Feel free to PM me with additional comments, or simply post 'em here.

Hi i wood like that, I think that $15,000 is to high.
LS3=$6400 LS7=14,000 LSX454=12,000
So you see That $8500 is about right for the too big CI engines and the lsx454 has the same HP as the ls9.

2ss LSX454 Stick + $8500, Warranteed

There's not much of a business case for someone in Ontario to build something like that. Stephano Bimbi is offering a Nickey Camaro package with up to 700+ HP. He has sold 16 already. When you combine his package with other folks like Tom Henry and Fesler-Moss, there's not much market left.

Tom is a very good acquaintance of mine but, regrettably, is NOT involved...at least not yet...

I'm sure, however, he'll enjoy the "plug"...

And another.....

The Z28 is designed and built, but it is not coming out, theres plenty of interest. If they don't build a car thats already designed etc, they DEFINITELY are not designing another. No need to re-invent the wheel.

Now if you are asking about building an aftermarket version (like the Nickey or Tom Henry) then have at it, always nice to see more. Its not a COPO that term should be dropped in relation to this car.

Of the SEMA cars unveiled in November, the "COPO" car seems to be the one most folks are "interested" in...at least from a potential owner's point of view. Ergo, the COPO name used here...which, as mentioned in the first post, will NOT be used on this car...

It's a frame of reference...

It wasn't called the SEMA COPO car, it was the SEMA Camaro LS7 Concept... The description mentioned "in the spirit of the COPO Camaro".

Either way I'm interested to see what you come up with.

The LS7 would be a much better match for the Camaro. This thing would weigh well over 4000#s if you had the LS9 in there. The ZR1 weights more then the Z06 and it has all that carbon fiber and other light weight items. The LS7 has plenty of power and it would handle better because of the less weight hanging of the front end.

Yeah but those cars still hold high value

I would love an SLP car...its definetly more affordable and a more plausible option for GM...SLP...a familiar brand that had worked with GM in the past. And they still were soley just a few bolt on and a new badging...but damn did it feel cool. There is this old dude that eats at a place that i go to all the time...he has a WU6 Firehawk...its a friggin garage queen...He has only taken it out once since i've known him...has 15k miles on it.

I would love SLP to be offered at the dealer again.
