Arrow NEWS: 2014 COPO Camaro also bowing at SEMA

Filed under: Motorsports, Coupe, Chevrolet, Racing



If you read both of our pieces on Chevrolet's SEMA lineup, you'll note we mentioned a revised COPO Camaro, but didn't say anything beyond that. Quite simply, we didn't have all the facts then. Now we do - this is the 2014 COPO Camaro, and it is ready dominate drag strips.

Following tradition, only 69 2014 COPO Camaros will be built, each of which will be eligible for the NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. These monsters are available with the customer's choice of a naturally aspirated, 427-cubic-inch (7.0-liter) V8 or a 350-cubic-inch (5.7-liter) V8, sporting a 2.9-liter, screw-type Whipple supercharger. Mhmm, supercharger whine. For those on more of a budget, naturally aspirated versions of the 350 and a 396-cubic-inch (6.5-liter) V8 are also available.

Race seats, a new wheel design and graphics package round out the updated COPO offerings. Each car comes standard with a suite of NHRA-approved safety items, including a roll cage. Other tweaks include a solid-rear axle in place of the standard independent rear suspension, and of course, those massive rear tires.

"The COPO Camaro contingent was strong at the first Chevrolet Performance US Nationals in 2013 and we expect an even larger turnout with the new cars in 2014," said Jim Campbell, General Motors vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports. "The new engines will make the racing more exciting and COPO drivers more competitive," he said.

Chevy also announced that it would expand its offerings of crate engines, with five mill available in 2014. The aforementioned 427 is joined by two, 327-cubic-inch (5.4-liter) engines that use either a 2.9-liter or a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger. The naturally aspirated 396 and 350 are also available as standalone items. Have a look below for the entire press release from Chevrolet.
