2022 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Launches With American Automaker's Biggest V8
rancakmedia.com – 2022 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Launched With American Automaker's Biggest V8. This Chevrolet Camaro drag race car has an engine with a very large capacity, but it can't be used on the streets, you know.
He is called the COPO Camaro, one of the line-ups of Chevrolet models that has a history in the United States drag race.
COPO, or Central Office Production Order, is usually used by Chevrolet dealers to order some special specification cars.
But in 1969, the COPO process was used by several Chevrolet COPO Camaro dealerships to order several cars for drag racing with large engines.
Now Chevrolet has introduced the COPO Camaro for the 2022 model year which has several large engine options.
The largest is the normal aspirated Big Block V8 engine with a capacity of 572 cubic inches or 9,373 cc.
Quoting from Car And Driver, the Big Block engine is estimated by the National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) to have 430 hp. Machines have monsters that can be changed back to be ready for action.
All of this is yours from $105,500 before dealer fees. That may sound expensive for a track toy, but it should be remembered that less than 700 new COPO Camaros have been built since the program was revived in 2012.
More people have modern Bugattis than the Chevrolet COPO Camaro. Surprisingly, Chevy didn't elaborate on power figures for this monster of a machine in its press release. It has made several 572 box engines, though, the strongest of which produces 727 horsepower and 680 pound-feet of torque.
The 572 installed in COPO is fuel injected, which means that the energy number is likely to be higher. We at least know it's cranking to 6,750 rpm.
If you prefer to have a supercharged 5.7 liter, it makes 580 horsepower; The naturally smoked 427 V8 makes 470 rated mobiles NHRA.
The Detroit automaker had previously limited sales of the Chevrolet COPO Camaro to just 69 per year, but that is no longer the case.
Because perhaps the future seems uncertain for internal combustion, or because marketing for the Camaro is in the gutter, Chevy has opted to accommodate as many loyal customers as it can on a first-come, first-served basis. It will be available from the end of 2021.
