This isn't the first COPO Camaro that Chevrolet has auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson. In fact, just last year, the one and only COPO Camaro Convertible was sold right here in Scottsdale for an even $400,000, all of it going to charity.

For 2014, the automaker has trotted out the very first 2014 COPO, serial number 1 of 69, again to raise money for charity - in this case, Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. It may not be street legal, but it is at least legal to race in the NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes.

While five engines are available to COPO customers, this particular 2014 COPO Camaro will come equipped with a LS-based 350-cubic-inch V8 engine topped with a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger. That engine is backed by a Turbo 400 automatic transmission, which is appropriate for drag-race duties.

When the gavel finally fell, it carried with it a final bid of $700,000 all of which went to charity. Nicely done! Scroll down below for the official auction description.Continue reading Barrett-Jackson 2014: First 2014 Chevrolet Camaro COPO brings $700k for charity
