Chevrolet Offering Drivers another Chance at Drag Strip Dreams

March 14, 2013

Did New Year’s Eve 2012 leave you just one regret: you didn’t get your hands on one of the drag-strip designed Camaros released in an ultra-limited production run? If you just can’t get over the missed opportunity, take heart. Chevrolet has decided to produce the COPO Camaro once more for 2013. Just as they did in 2012, the automaker will only produce 69 of the vehicles. This isn’t a random number. Chevrolet chose this number as a nod of respect and acknowledgement to the 1969 Camaro ZL1. This model had a production run of, yes, 69 vehicles.

The name of the vehicle is also a touch of homage from Chevrolet. COPO, the Central Office Production Order, once existed for the purpose of allowing dealers that had their fingers on the pulse of racing to build their own Camaro models. Don’t get your hopes up about taking your 2013 Camaro COPO out for a spin around the neighborhood or offering your son the coolest ride to prom ever. As with the 2012 model, this drag-strip-ready Chevrolet is not street legal. It is, however, incredibly powerful. The top of the range features a 425 horsepower V-8.

If you want to get behind the wheel of one of these supercharged vehicles, make sure you have your fingers crossed. Over 3,000 Camaro-lovers vied for the opportunity to purchase one of the limited production vehicles in 2012 and it is predicted that around the same number will be itching to get their hands on a COPO. Potential buyers will need to sign up for the opportunity and wait with bated breath to see if they are chosen by the random selection committee for the chance to buy their dream car. Production will get started in the coming weeks and the very first of the vehicles will be delivered fresh off the production line in the early summer.

If a COPO isn’t in your future, but a Chevrolet definitely is, visit your local Jessup Auto Plaza dealer to explore the models that are currently available. Let the Cathedral City experts answer your questions and guide you to the model that is perfect for you.
