Chevrolet Performance is now putting the finishing touches on the COPO Camaro, but is it heading for production?
Could Chevrolet simply allow the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet get all of the attention? That would be a clear no. Originally introduced at SEMA in November, the COPO Camaro concept has been designed to handle more than one engine, specifically the naturally aspirated 427 7.0-liter V8. And in a case of automotive historic irony, it has the same displacement as the original '69 COPO Camaro. The other engine option is the supercharged 327 5.3-liter V8.
Transmission choices include either a two or three-speed automatic, or a five-speed manual. Built using the specifications of the NHRA Stock Eliminator class, Chevrolet has yet to confirm that a production version is on the way.
Official specs haven't been released for now, but our prediction, based on what's being said by Chevrolet test engineers in this new video, is that the COPO Camaro will be offered in the very near future.
