The muscle car world is at war, fighting for glory a quarter-mile at a time. To this day, the combatants and their cars are legends. But one is remembered above all as the Ultimate Weapon: COPO. As GM shorthand for Central Office Production Order, COPO helped Chevrolet engineers bolt their biggest guns in the lightest packages to supply drag and road racers with factory-developed and NHRA-approved engines, transmissions, brakes, exhausts, hoods, instruments and spoilers.
The car will be based on the COPO Camaro Concept, at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and whose name, COPO, harkens back to a time when sly dealers could order a Corvette-powered Camaro from the factory without the big wigs knowing. But unlike most concept cars, the COPO Camaro Concept is a rolling prototype for the production version that’s to follow.
Creating the Ultimate Weapon for track or street. Proven in competition and tamed for the street, the ZL1’s all-alloy construction pared the weight of the big-block down to small-block levels. Buyers of the COPO Camaro, if and when it becomes available, will be able to fit one of two suggested engine packages: 427-cubic-inch naturally aspirated V8 7.9 liters for A Stock racing and 327-cubic-inch supercharged V8 5.3 liters for AA Stock racing.
