Envisioned to compete in the NHRA Stock Eliminator class, the COPO Camaro hints at what a possible Mustang Cobra Jet competitor could look like.
Chevrolet has released a new promotional video for the COPO Camaro concept.
Envisioned to compete in the NHRA Stock Eliminator class, the concept previews a possible competitor to the Mustang Cobra Jet. It was recently unveiled at the SEMA Motor Show and features a cowl-induction hood, a coilover front suspension, a solid rear axle and a chromoly roll cage.
For maximum flexibility, the COPO was designed to accommodate two engines: a supercharged 327 (5.3L) and a naturally-aspirated 427 (7.0L). They can be paired to a two-speed automatic, a three-speed automatic or a five-speed manual.
Specifications haven't been released, but GM Performance Parts Marketing Manager Cliff Cohen said "We've very proud to be able to tell you the vehicle meet or exceeded every expectation that we had over the last three years ... the vehicle went down the track, it turned the times we thought it would and we're leaving today very, very satisfied."
