The First Ever 2015 COPO Camaro Is Being Auctioned To Benefit This Awesome Charity

/ Comments

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

Chevy is paying tribute to wounded veterans by auctioning off the first-ever 2015 Chevy COPO Camaro made at the upcoming Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach. All proceeds will go towards the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans which helps wounded vets compete in marathons and other distance 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 Whipple supercharger 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 the last would have already made this 2015 COPO Camaro worth a ton of money. The fact 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.
