Chevrolet COPO Camaro Goes From Concept to Production


Stock Eliminator drag racer the quickest Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet

COPO Camaros are expected to be the quickest Camaro ever offered by Chevrolet.

“The COPO Camaro is going to shake up the sportsman drag racing ranks this summer and give Chevy fans a great new reason to cheer on the Bowtie,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles &amp; Motorsports. “COPO builds off the strengths that have made the Camaro the best-selling sports car in America. And while it was developed strictly for the drag strip, the COPO Camaro is infused with the same performance pedigree that every Camaro shares.”

The 69-car production for the 2012 COPO Camaro matches the number of “ZL-1” COPO Camaros made in 1969. COPO stands for Central Office Production Order and was Chevrolet’s special-order system in used by dealers to build high-performance models in the 1960s.

The new COPO Camaros will be built using factory “body-in-white” body structures produced at the Oshawa, Ontario plant that manufactures regular-production Camaros. They are the same body-in-white body shells available to all racers under Chevrolet Performance part number 19243374.

Customers will order and complete the transaction for their COPO Camaro at their preferred Chevrolet dealer with delivery at the General Motors Performance Build Center in Wixom, Mich.

Deliveries will begin early this summer.

something may be fishy, buyer has no feedback. I wouldn't be comfortable spending $100k plus because of that

Do the potential buyers have to have an NHRA license to buy this? Thought I read somewhere that inorder to buy this &quot;Race car&quot;...you needed an NHRA license??

Don't know.... But it sure is a cool car. I *think* that the buyer has a slot and has a significant market upcharge.

With GM only making 69 of them, I am sure that there will be several resold. Especially if they do require a license.

I guess technically you would be the second owner?

Found a better pic here:

<div class="ubbcode-block"><div class="ubbcode-header">Quote:</div><div class="ubbcode-body">
Chevrolet chose to offer just 69 units as an homage to the number of original “ZL-1&amp;#8243; COPO Camaros produced in 1969. Back then, the acronym Central Office Production Order was the way by which buyers could special-order high-performance variants of the company’s cars.

Today, Chevrolet has contracted an outside company to fairly determine which racing customers will receive a COPO Camaro. Selected customers will receive a letter with information on how to purchase and take delivery of their race car. The COPO cars will be delivered at the GM Performance Build Center in Michigan, where the customer can opt to participate in the build process.

The price tag for each Camaro starts at $89,000, and deliveries begin this summer.

Yes you do need an NHRA License to purchase the C.O.P.O. Camaro.

Thanks,

Wonder why they choose that Part # as 2012<span style="text-decoration: underline">9562</span> seems more suited to a 2012 Copo Chevelle!
As much as there's no 17 Digit Vin, what/where are the identifying sequence #'s affixed to the vehicle?
What's the factory rubber shipped w/ these cars?
