By now we all know how Chevy built a few quarter-mile kings direct from the factory, and this 2015 Chevrolet Camaro COPO is one of those rare factory speed machine. With its supercharged V8 and full competition-ready package (right down to the racing parachute,) this was born to be a red-hot total package.
Chevrolet might be the company that builds cars to fill America's streets, but this one is only made to eat up the dragstrip. No production VINs, and no-street legal legislation weighing it down. Instead, this is built in the high-octane tradition of COPO cars that snuck a few competition machines out the back door. This is #22 of the ultra-small 69-car production run. The factory Red Hot paint gives off a terrific gloss, but you also know this is no assembly line Camaro. Every angle gives away the ultra high-performance look with the big cowl hood, COPO badging, and Bogart polished wheels with the ideal stagger in with for drag racing. This was optioned with the top-dog motor in 2015, and so that also mean it came with features not on the other COPOS, including a carbon fiber hood and parachute. Plus, there are other race-ready options like the wheelie bar.
The interior is pure race machine. That's why you have a full chromoly roll cage, racing bucket seats, and RJS racing harnesses and net. And just to remind you that this is a factory-backed effort, there are COPO logos on the seats and dash. Chevrolet wanted this to feel like a true stock racer, so you get the factory wheel w/stereo switches, full door panels w/speaker inserts, and center control knobs. Of course, none of them are hooked up to anything, because this is all about being the lightest and quickest Camaro around. That's why your real controls are the toggle switches neatly integrated into the dash. The factory speedo and tach are supplemented by all your important auxiliary readouts in the center at eye level. There's even a large AutoMeter tach w/shift light mounted correctly on the A-pillar. It goes great with the Hurst Quaterstick shifter.
Under the hood is the meanest motor that was offered with the 2015 COPO. It's a 350 cubic-inch Chevrolet Performance LSX block with a Whipple 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger on top. The motor is fully built to support this big power induction. It includes a Callies 4340 Dragonslayer crankshaft, Callies 4340 H-beam rods, Mahle forged 2618 alloy pistons, Mahle rings, Comp Cams hydraulic roller camshaft, aluminum heads, and much more (call for all the details.) Fuel is delivered through an Aeromotive injection system that is programed for supercharged power. And American Racing headers are the last step before the thunder freely flows beneath the car. The full package is rated by Chevrolet at 530 horsepower. Plus, all fluids and filters have been replaced quite recently to keep it in top condition, and even the torque on the bolts was checked. The V8 is mated to a ATI Racing Products TH400 three-speed with reverse manual valve body. This feeds a strong Strange Engineering 9-inch rear lightweight spool and 4.10 gears for excellent take-offs. Plus, you get a four-link rear (w/Panhard link,) adjustable coilovers, four-wheel disc brakes, and Goodyear Eagle racing tires.
The sale comes complete with the full owner's manual packet unique to these COPO cars. You know how special this coupe is, and so you also know what kind of rare opportunity you're looking at. Call today!!!
