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.

So proud of all who was bidding on this for a great cause. Saw it today and can't wait to see what the 1st Z28 brings tomorrow.

It's not about the money...it's for charity. I want to say a lot more but I'll hold my tongue.

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

The car itself and the selling price is all about the charity and nothing else. Congrats to everyone involved!
