Lightbulb First 2014 COPO Camaro Auctions for $700k at Barrett-Jackson

Via Autoblog:

For 2014, the automaker has trotted out the very first 2014 COPO, serial number 1 of 69, again to raise money for charity – in this case, Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. It may not be street legal, but it is at least legal to race in the NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes.

While five engines are available to COPO customers, this particular 2014 COPO Camaro will come equipped with a LS-based 350-cubic-inch V8 engine topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. That engine is backed by a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, which is appropriate for drag-race duties.

When the gavel finally fell, it carried with it a final bid of $700,000 all of which went to charity. Nicely done! Scroll down below for the official auction description.

How does a person's opinion about a car have anything to do with somehow disliking wounded soldiers? What a silly comment to make...

Love the color. That thing really pops when you see it in real life I betcha.

The downside is that in the internet age, people in general are really so dim that I'm already reading about how the 350 COPO is "worth" 700,000 dollars because of this auction

Someone is getting defensive. What other venue would you post your opinion about that particular car?
