“John Force is one of the most legendary drag racers in history – and his legend started with Chevrolet,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance and Motorsports. “We are proud to partner with him on this one-of-a-kind COPO Camaro and are excited to see what it will do on the auction block for charity.”
After the SEMA Show, Chevrolet plans to auction this one-of-a-kind racer at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction in January. Proceeds from the sale will go to DonorsChoose.org. This special COPO Camaro comes with a special “2020COPO-FORCE” plaque and, according to Chevrolet, is not part of the normal run of 69 COPO Camaros built.
“This is a great-looking COPO Camaro, and I enjoyed helping design this car,” said John Force. “The COPO Camaro is already a formidable car, and hard to beat on the track. But this one is even more special, as it will help support a cause I firmly believe in.”
In addition to the black and silver paint scheme similar to the John Force edition, Black, Summit White, Satin Steel Gray and Red will also be available. Several heritage colors such as Hugger Orange, Butternut Yellow, Frost Green Poly, Olympic Gold Poly, Garnet Red, Fathom Green Poly and Azure Turquoise Poly will also be available for the COPO Camaro.
Available engines include a supercharged LSX-based 350 with a 2.65-liter Magnuson supercharger and LSX-SC cylinder heads as well as an LSX-based 427. An available Racer’s Package, which comprises a carbon-fiber air outlet, dual batteries, weight box, parachute, and a quick-change coupling (for the supercharged engine) will also be available.
