2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro

Chevrolet donated the first 2014 COPO Camaro to be auctioned this weekend at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale collector car auction, with the proceeds going to charity.

The COPO Camaro, carrying serial number 1 of 69 for the 2014 model year, was sold for $700,000 – $300,000 more than first 2013 model fetched a year ago.

The car, which features a one-off COPO Ice Blue Metallic satin paint scheme, is intended strictly for drag racing. It is legal to race in the NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes.

While five engines are available to COPO customers, including a 427, this particular car is equipped with an LS-based 350-cubic-inch V-8 engine topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger and driving through a Turbo 400 automatic transmission.

It is the third year for the COPO Camaro program, which builds race cars for NHRA Stock Eliminator competition. The 2014 COPO models carry the same updated styling as the rest of the Camaro lineup, including new front and rear fascias. Exclusive to the COPO are new racing seats, updated graphics and a new, available wheel design.
