BAY CITY, Mich. – Chevrolet is giving back in a big way this week! The 2016 COPO Camaro will be auctioned to benefit United Way. Every penny made from the auction will go towards United Way.
If you’re not sure what the COPO Camaro is, think power and performance. The Camaro is designed to race in the NHRA Stock Eliminator class. These COPO Camaros are special because each is built by hand starting with the production hardware. The COPO Camaro get its name from the Central Office Production Order system used in the 1960's for fleet managers to order special or unusual combinations of parts. Dealers often use this system to pack high performance powertrains into production Camaros.
The 2016 COPO Camaro is actually a sixth-generation legacy that was introduced at the SEMA show last November. The car has a look that was created by Chevrolet and NHRA Funny Car driver, Courtney Force. The Camaro stands out with a red hot exterior, Courtney Force signature graphics, and a red-accented grille trim.
Courtney Force is very excited about this car saying, “I was extremely honored to work with Chevrolet and help design the 2016 COPO Camaro. The bright red color 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, so it's an awesome project all around."
The carbon fiber high-ride hood hides a 350 racing engine with a Whipple 2.9L supercharger. Inside the cabin is a chrome-moly roll cage, lightweight bucket seats personalized with the COPO logo and Courtney Force’s signature, a five-point safety harnesses, and a floor-mounted shifter for the THM-350 automatic transmission.
The 2016 COPO Camaro will be auctioned to benefit United Way on Friday, January 29th at 7PM. If you’re looking for something more family friendly, check out the 2016 Chevy Equinox or the 2016 Chevy Tahoe. Graff Bay City will help you find a great vehicle for you!
