The first production 2014 COPO Camaro drag car, one of the only 69 that will be sold this year, was auctioned off for $700,000 at Barrett-Jackson's Scottsdale sale event yesterday. All proceeds will benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.

Wearing serial number 1 and a Silver Ice metallic satin paint finish, the vehicle is not street legal but it is eligible for NHRA's Stock Eliminator and Super Stock classes. The winner will take it home with an LS-based 350 cubic engine V8 engine and a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger under the hood. The 2014 COPO Camaro is also fitted with a Turbo 400 automatic suspension, specifically designed for the drag strip.

As a brief reminder, the 2014 COPO Camaro was unveiled at the 2013 SEMA Show and can be had with one of the following engines: a naturally aspirated 427, a supercharged version of the 350 featuring a 2.9-liter Whipple compressor, and naturally aspirated 350 and 396 units.
