The 2016 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is based on the regular Camaro model and was specially designed for SEMA and it highlights a drag race car built in a joint venture with NHRA Funny Car driver Courtney Force, who was involved in the making of the car`s design.

From a mechanical point of view, the 2016 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is coming with sports rear suspension, solid rear axle and a new architecture which makes the car 60.5 kg lighter than the previous fifth generation COPO Camaro.

Under the hood, the 2016 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is packing a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger V8 350i racing engine, with no performance numbers to be displayed at the moment.

The model will be presented at the 2016 Barrett-Jackson auction, the proceeds being offered for charity. Stay tuned for fresh auto news from the 2015 SEMA Show and don’t forget to share your opinions in the discussion section!
