Charity

Barrett-Jackson bidders have a chance to own history and help a worthy cause.

Chevy is paying tribute to wounded veterans by auctioningoff the first-ever 2015 Chevy COPO Camaro made at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson PalmBeach. All proceeds will go towards the Achilles Freedom Team ofWounded Veterans which helps wounded vets compete in marathons and otherdistance races. The Camaro should fetch a huge sum for a variety of reasons. The patriotic pull is one and the amazing straight-line speed and rarity are the others.

This fifth-gen Camaro has a 2.9-liter Whipplesupercharger that helps boost engine ouput to 555 horsepower. Each COPO was built by hand and designed to drag race. To that end NHRA safety gear, including a roll cage, is included. Being the first of thelast would have already made this 2015 COPO Camaro worth a ton of money. Thefact that the final offer goes directly to a charity that helps America's wounded soldiers compete again should make for some aggressive bidding. Hell, a COPO Camaro convertible (one of only two made) sold for $400,000.
