COPO Camaro to be released!!!!

Subject:2012 COPO Camaro Program


Chevrolet Performance Parts is introducing the COPO Camaro Program.

The COPO Camaro is Chevrolet’s first purpose built Camaro drag-racing specialty car. It is designed to be competitive with the quickest in NHRA’s Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. Each is delivered with class-approved racing content. A total production limited to 69 2012 COPO Camaros will be built. Production is scheduled to begin in April 2012.

The 2012 COPO Camaro will have only a serial number. It does not have a Vehicle Identification Number and no Certificate of Title can be obtained. COPO cannot be registered, titled or licensed, and cannot be driven on public roads or highways. COPO is specifically offered for off-highway, competitive NHRA track use only.

During the promotional phase for the COPO Camaro Concept, the public was able to communicate their interest in purchasing a COPO if the program were to be introduced for public sale. From the many individual hand raisers who expressed interest in buying a COPO Camaro, potential purchasers have been identified based on customer feedback and an objective sorting process. They will be offered the opportunity to purchase a 2012 COPO Camaro from the Chevrolet dealer of their choosing.

We will begin notifying these consumers of their opportunity to purchase a COPO Camaro on Thursday, March 8th. If a candidate chooses your dealership to facilitate the purchase of a COPO, you will receive a call from a Chevrolet Performance representative explaining the purchase process and asking you to identify a point of contact within your dealership for the customer to work with. Customers will have ten (10) business days after receipt of their personalized COPO Purchase Certificate to complete the purchase transaction with their selected Chevrolet dealer.

Agreed!!!!

At least the 1969 COPO Camaros were street driven...A juiced up SS may not beat a COPO2012 but will sure as hell give it a run for its money....then drive home with A/C and a stereo.

That is all cool.

It's just a shame that 69 are built.

3 might be actually raced.

66 will end up sitting in collectors garages. Bummer.... :(

My question is, Why would a car that cannot be legally driven on the street have an odomiter? It will only drive a 1/4 of a mile at a time.

They are race cars. Even spelled backwards, its a racecar! The folks who get one will race it. I am if my request gets accepted. As a NHRA Super Comp racer, it will see Stock or maybe Super Stock.

GM built it for the track. From the 4130 chromoly chassis to the Ford 9inch rear, this car IS NOT for the the street like my 69 COPO. Its a whole different animal from the 69, trust me.

Tim,

Stick to racing your aircraft and lay off the caffeine. Consequently you have never watched a Barret Jackson auction as I'm sure Jay Leno won't be racing his COPO anytime soon.

I wonder why they keep saying NHRA Stock/Super Stock. IHRA Stock and Super Stock is a valid option too.

And please people..its a race car..meant to keep with the Mustang and Challenger Drag Pak...its not a daily car...period. Get OVER it. Jeez. Its a race car.

Exactly,I wouldn't even want to try and drive it on the road,I don't think it would handle or ride too good!

Not sure where you got your info, but it is wrong. The cheapest model (427 NA) starts at about $89k. The two other 327 (5.3L) models are both supercharged. There is an option to get the car with all three motors (two being on engine stands), but even that would surely be way less than $180k. But the lucky 69 recipients have already been selected, so I guess we'll have to see what they do for 2013...
