COPO Camaro Smokes Rubber, Runs 9s [Video]
This is COPO Camaro #6, belonging to Al Motor, and it was filmed by Hightechcorvette doing what it a bully does best, flexing its muscles and burning its tires. For a car that came “out of a box”, we’d say the running the quarter mile in the 9s at 140 mph isn’t half bad at all.
GM will build 69 COPOs as purpose-made drag racers. These will compete professionally in the NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock racing classes, with availability of three different engines and various racing components setting them apart.
A choice of engines is on offer, either the naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8, 5.3-liter V8 with a 2.9-liter supercharger or a 5.3L V8 with a 4.0-liter supercharger.
