As we said last week (and were widely questioned about!) GM Performance has unveiled their Copo Camaro drag race package concept car here at SEMA. Like the drag packages from Ford and Mopar, this car is not intended to be used on the street and is aimed at the NHRA and IHRA’s stock eliminator class. The car is a real looker with a purposeful stance, blown 5.3L motor, slicks, Ford 9-inch rear end, and roll cage.
While the car here at the show has a supercharged 5.3 (HMMMM…think they are looking Ford right in the eye on this one, after all the Cobra Jet has a 5.4L blown modular enggine) we’ve heard from the folks at GM Performance that there could be a couple engine options for the car if (we believe it is more like when) these are available for sale. Expect the 7.0L naturally aspirated mill to be on the option list, as well.
As you’d expect, the car has a manual steering, a drag race front suspension with adjustable struts and out back there is a solid axle (9-inch Ford) with sway bar mounts and wheelie bar mounts already in place if the owner wanted to add those items. The brakes are lightweight pieces are are fully manual.
Other items of note:
28″x15″ slicks out back
NHRA approved roll cage
Full factory interior minus the rear seat
We do not know what the price point will be on this car yet. If we can glean that information we will pass it along! Scroll down for more photos of the Chevy COPO Drag Race Package Camaro
