Chevy Goes Camaro Crazy at SEMA
If you're a fan of Chevy's legendary pony car, the Camaro, you'll be glad to know that Chevy is adding a few more rampaging stallions to its stables. Unveiled at the 2014 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Chevy rolled out its new 2015 Camaro Commemorative Edition, COPO Camaro, and finally gave a name to its emerald ‘Spring Special Edition.’ A few weeks back, Chevy asked throngs of Camaro fans what name they should apply to a viridescent 2015 Camaro, and the name they chose is the “Green Flash Edition”. Buyers can nab the green muscle car this upcoming spring in 2SS convertible and coupe models. RELATED: Check out photos of the original 1969 COPO Camaros
Chevy has rolled out a select few COPO Camaro special edition drag cars every year since 2012, an homage to the late ‘60s when Bowtie dealerships used Chevy’s Central Office Production Order to build the highest of high-performing muscle cars. As such, the 2015 COPO Camaro is no slouch.
Chevy will produce a rarified 69 COPOs for 2015, all of which have been hand-built using NHRA-approved roll cages, solid rear axles, and a choice of six beefy crate engines…both naturally aspirated and supercharged. Power output ranges from 350-horsepower all the way up to 550hp, though that grunt will have to stay on the dragstrip. Buyers can't register or drive these beasts on the road...legally.

The 2015 Chevy Camaro Commemorative Edition also makes its 2014 SEMA premier (top). The special edition celebrates the success of the fifth-gen pony car, which is on track to become the US’ best-selling performance car for five years on the trot. Buyers can spec the Commemorative Edition in 2LT and 2SS coupe and convertible trims with the RS package. On the outside that means 20-inch wheels, a body-colored front splitter and rear spoiler. Inside, black-and-red leather seats, tweaked instrument clusters, and a flat-bottom steering wheel complete the look, amongst other additions. Horsepower however remains the same on Green Flash and Commemorative editions…unless you’re one of the lucky few to end up with one of these.
