Chevrolet took to the 2015 SEMA show to introduce the new Gen Six COPO Camaro, because the crowd at this event is one of the few group of people who understand the value of a car designed for the sole purpose of going fast in the straight line. The COPO is a competition car designed for NHRA’s Stock and Super Stock Eliminator classes.
As you would expect from the new generation, the new COPO Camaro comes with a number of advantages over the previous model. It has a lighter and stronger body structure, for example, and it benefits from increased structural rigidity by 28 percent, while the body-in-white mass is reduced by 133 pounds. All this effort is spent do the car can go past the finish line a few hundredth of a seconds quicker than its rivals.
The Gen Six COPO Camaro will be available with supercharged and naturally aspirated LS- and LT-family engines, including a supercharged 350 (5.7L), a naturally aspirated 427 (7.0L) engine and an all-new LT-based 376 (6.2L) engine. The standard transmission is a racing-prepped Turbo 400 three-speed automatic transmission.
Another highlight of the new COPO is a sophisticated suspension system consisting of adjustable struts up front and four-link rear suspension with adjustable coil-overs, a spool-type differential, and lightweight un-assisted brake and steering systems.
