SEMA 2015: Chevrolet launches 2016 COPO Camaro!

By ,

Chevrolet teamed up with NHRA Camaro Funny Car driver Courtney Force to introduce the Gen Six COPO Camaro today at the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas. The car will be auctioned at a Barrett-Jackson sale in 2016.

“I was extremely honored to work with Chevrolet and help design the 2016 COPO Camaro we unveiled today at the SEMA show,” said Courtney Force. “The bright red colour and the signature slash marks towards the back on the car bring a part of my Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car to the COPO Camaro, which I think is really cool. The proceeds from this car go to a great cause and benefit the United Way Foundation, so it's an awesome project all around."

Chevy announced that it will also build 69 NHRA-certified COPO Camaro race cars for 2016 – all fitted with a racing chassis and suspension components. Under the hood will be a variety of supercharged and naturally aspirated LS- and LT-family engines based on their intended NHRA Stock and Super Stock classes, including a supercharged 350 (5.7L), a naturally aspirated 427 (7.0L) engine, and an all-new LT-based 376 (6.2L) engine. The engines are backed by a racing-prepped, 3-speed Turbo 400 automatic transmission.
