Unveiled just blocks from the Las Vegas Strip, the 2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro made its big debut at SEMA.
The COPO Camaro program enters its third year in 2014 and pretty much a carryover from recent COPO cars, with just 69 planned for production, each car is going to come with a suite of NHRA-approved safety items. With the new 2014 Camaro styling, it will also include a roll cage. The COPO Camaro elevates the legend, Chevy Camaro, to entirely new level.
The COPO Camaro will be made available to the customers with an option of 4 naturally aspirated or supercharged engines. The Chevrolet Performance will auction the serial number 1 of the limited-production car at the Barrett-Jackson’s annual January event in Scottsdale and the proceeds will be used to help the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.
Like the previous COPO Camaro, this time also the prospective customers will be given the choice of different power plants depending on how much speed and power they want in their car and it will also depend on how much they are willing to spend.
The 2014 COPO Camaro will be made accessible with the driver’s choice between a 27-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8 or a 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8, and both of these will be fitted out with a 2.9-liter,screw-type Whipple supercharger. The front and rear fascias have been redesigned for the 2014 COPO Camaro to give a better and more appealing look.
Each COPO Camaro race car will be built by hand starting with hardware from the Oshawa, Ontario assembly plant that manufactures regular-production Camaros.
Demand is expected to far outstrip supply, so Chevrolet will once again turn to an external third party to hold a lottery and select customers. Pricing has yet to be announced, but expect the 2014 COPO Camaro to ring at $86,000.
