And like before, just 69 examples will be built.
As the fifth generation Chevrolet Camaro’s life comes to a close, GM is making sure it goes out with a bang. Having its official premiere at the 2014 SEMA Show is the 2015 COPO Camaro, the fourth, and final, edition of the limited-production, factory-built race car. And like its predecessors, just 69 examples will be built. The car on display this week features an Abalone White exterior with gray and orange accents and all-new COPO graphics. Power comes from a 350-hp "LX" V8 with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger.
Each car is built by hand beginning with production hardware, including the same body in white used for production models. All COPO Camaros are fitted with an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment. There’s also a racing chassis and suspension components, such as a solid rear axle in place of the regular production Camaro’s independent rear axle system. Buyers, like before, can chose from several supercharged and naturally aspirated LS-family engines based on their NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes.
