If you missed it, GM announced in a press release published during the SEMA show last week that the company will producing COPO Camaros in 2013.

While 69 COPO Camaros were built in 2012, it is reported that there are still another 3,000 interested buyers out there. That demand will continue to be satisfied in 2013, it is expected that another 69 will be produced.

See our news and features on the COPO Camaro @ http://www.camaro5.com/index.php?s=copo+camaro


Below is the official breakdown of the the 69 COPO Camaros produced in 2012:

  • 20 cars were equipped with the 327 / 4.0L-supercharged engine
  • 6 cars were equipped with the 327 / 2.9L-supercharged engine
  • 8 customers ordered the collector’s package, which includes all three engines number-matched to their car

These COPOs really are not in the spirit of the original, which could be street driven.

I heard that COPO 2013 #68 will stay with GM, and #69 will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson I believe

2013 COPO Convertible in GM's Booth at SEMA 2012:


2012 COPO in GM's Outside Booth at SEMA 2012:


2012 COPO in Husky Liner's Booth at SEMA 2012:

which is the same car that won the NHRA Big Tire Nationals the weekend before the show:

How bad does your life suck that you own a COPO with THREE number matched engines?!

A possible kick in the pants to the 12' owners who thought they were going to have 1 of 69 total modern copos? Not that I care, just a thought. Glad there are more produced

Oh well, with the way they had the COPO on the cover of the 2013 performance catalog I thought it was a shame that more people couldn't afford one and that more would not be made. Seemed like a waste of a great nameplate to limit it so much.

What does it mean to have 3 engines? They give you all 3 to be interchanged when you wish?

Yes

Also, you can order virtually the entire COPO car in parts from the GM Performance catalog this year.

That would be #69, the convertible (pictured above). You can bid on it at Barrett-Jackson in January. Bring a butt-load of cash...

I'll be there to watch it go!!!

Actually we built #69 as the Inferno Orange convertible that was on display at SEMA. It is the final 2012 COPO and a lucky bidder will be able to buy it at Barrett-Jackson in January! Proceeds will support a worthy cause, the American Heart Association. Good luck to the bidders!

I put a large container at my desk at work. It says "Raising Funds for a good Cause, help me purchase #69 Copo".

So far I have raised $4.35, 2 buttons and a coupon for $1 Roast beef sandwich. I have clearly not raised enough funds to purchase this. :(
