As Chevrolet has ended production of the Camaro, opportunities remain to get your hands on these exceptional cars. Still, no opportunity is quite like the ones that showed up at Barrett-Jackson this year. Two COPO Camaro drag cars were sold at this year’s Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona. One serial, #001, was a 2022 model powered by a naturally aspirated big-block 572ci V8 engine. A big-block ZZ632 V8 engine powers the other. Both cars sold for over $100,000.

2022 COPO Camaro

As for the 2023 COPO Chevrolet Camaro, this one received the ZZ632 big boi engine, producing 1,004 horsepower (10.35-liter) and 876 lb-ft of torque. This 2023 COPO Camaro is the most powerful, naturally aspirated car from any Big 3 American auto manufacturer. Sending that power to the rear wheels is a TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. This is Chevrolet’s proof of concept car for the 632. The block is a Tall Deck 632 Bowtie Sportsman with 4-bolt main caps. The cylinder heads are RS-X symmetrical port, CNC-machined aluminum, forged steel crankshaft, connecting rods, and pistons. It has electronic port injection. Keeping the COPO Camaro glued to the track are Hoosier drag racing tires on black Weld race wheels. The car also has wheelie bars, a carbon-fiber hood, dual batteries, and a parachute. This particular car sold for $171,600 during the auction.

The COPO program has only built 69 cars a year, with fewer than 700 examples since the program was restarted in 2012. Perhaps we’ll see these exquisite cars appear at drag strips in the future; if not, we’re sure they have very comfortable homes now with all their drag race glory.
