PICS: 6th Gen COPO Camaro Debuts @SEMA



Here is the latest rendition of the Iconic COPO Camaro in the 6th Gen body. Revealed Today at SEMA!

“Chevrolet is producing a limited run of 69 COPO Camaro racecars for 2016, and, for the second year in a row, the first one will be auctioned for charity. Designed for the NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Eliminator classes, the 2016 COPO Camaro makes its debut at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas.

Chevrolet first resurrected the COPO name back in 2012, when the bow-tie brand decided to pit its then fifth-generation Camaro against the Dodge Challenger Drag Pak and the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet on the drag strip. Now in it’s sixth generation, the latest COPO Camaro reaps the benefits of the new lighter and stronger design, the COPO’s body-in-white structure yielding a savings of 133 pounds. Structural rigidly is improved too, up by a claimed 28 percent thanks to extensive computer-aided engineering. Chevy says the aerodynamics of the new COPO car are superior to those of the fifth-gen COPO, but hasn’t published any data yet.”
