Lightbulb 2017 COPO Camaro introduced for SEMA

On Monday, Chevrolet introduced the 2017 COPO Camaro show car in Nevada. The show car, which is chassis number 01, will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona, this coming January to benefit the United Way. It features a unique Hyper Blue Metallic paint scheme, a supercharged 5.7-liter (350 cubic-inch) V-8, and Weld racing wheels.

Once again, a total of 69 COPO Camaros will be sold. Built to compete in the NHRA's Stock Eliminator classes, each COPO Camaro will feature a racing chassis and a sturdy sold rear axle in place of the stock car's independent rear axle.

Additional details will include:
  • lightweight, adjustable coil-over strut front suspension
  • four-link rear suspension with double-adjustable coil-over shocks, Panhard bar, and stabilizer bar
  • rear axle with an aluminum center section featuring a lightweight steel spool and 40-spline gun-drilled axle shafts
  • lightweight, drag-race manual four-wheel disc brakes (unassisted)
  • custom manual steering rack
  • fuel cell with built-in high-pressure fuel pump
  • unique racing wire harness.
  • Buyers will be able to choose from three engines, two from the older LS lineup and one from the new LT range. The LS engines consist of the supercharged 350-cubic-inch V-8 and the naturally aspirated 427-cubic inch (7.0-liter) V-8,. The LT-based engine is a direct-injected 376-cubic inch (6.2-liter) V-8. All three engines will come mated to a drag-ready TH400 3-speed automatic transmission.

Chevrolet says the supercharged 5.7 has an NHRA rating of 580 horsepower. It is capable of quarter-mile times in the 8.5-second range at a speed of 162 mph. It runs in the Factory Stock Showdown class at 3,550 pounds. The 7.0-liter has an NHRA horsepower rating of 470 and it can put up 9.2-second quarter-mile times at 150 mph. The 6.2's NHRA rating is 410 horsepower and it hits a 9.7-second quarter-mile time at 145 mph.

Pricing should range from the low $90,000s to about $110,000.

Chevrolet says it has more than 5,000 interested parties in its 69 cars, and it will hire an outside firm to determine which customers will be able to purchase this race-ready drag machine.

If you want one, you must register at http://Chevrolet.com/COPO by December 15. The lucky few will be notified during the first quarter of 2017. Fans can also follow updates on the 2017 COPO Camaro program at theBlock.com.

I really like that copo hood. I know that the aftermarket makes a copo style that's not quite as tall though.
