This is the last of the 2012 COPO Camaros meant for drag-racing competition and Chevrolet will auction it off for the America Heart Association. It's car number 69 of 69 COPO Camaros for 2012 but it only one of two COPO (Central Office Production Order) Camaros ever built, with the first one, car #68, due to go on permanent display at GM's museum.
The Inferno Orange Metallic car is one of 20 built powered by 327CID (5.3-liter) V8 engine wearing a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger. The LS9 uses an aluminum block and forged steel crank, while getting H-beam rods and forged dome pistons. It uses LS7 heads and gets a 10.2:1 compression ratio. It's good for 550 NHRA-certified horsepower and travels to a solid rear axle through a three-speed Turbo 400 automatic, being the only one of the 69 to use this gearbox.
The car is otherwise the only of the batch of 69 to be painted in orange, and gets custom graphics and unique interior trim. The fully-functional top must be up when the car is racing, as per NHRA rules.
The car will be auctioned at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction in January. Enthusiasts can build their own, equivalent drag cars thanks to parts from the aftermarket and the Chevrolet Performance catalog.
