2016 COPO CAMARO NO. 1 SALE TO BENEFIT UNITED WAY  • Courtney Force designed show car to be auctioned for United Way

DETROIT – Chevrolet will auction off the first, sixth generation 2016 COPO Camaro race car to raise money for United Way.

The purpose-built COPO Camaro, serial number 2016COPO001, will be sold on Friday, Jan. 29, at the Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale auction. All proceeds of the winning bid will benefit United Way.

'This is a special opportunity to purchase the first of the sixth generation, 2016 COPO Camaro while also helping such a great cause,' said Jim Campbell, U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports.

2016 COPO CAMARO NO. 1 SALE TO BENEFIT UNITED WAY  

The COPO is a powerful, purpose-built Camaro designed to race in NHRA Stock Eliminator class. The COPO Camaro legacy continues with an all-new sixth-generation version. This modern-looking machine infuses legendary COPO performance with the modern, lighter and stronger design of the 2016 Camaro.

Chevrolet introduced the sixth generation COPO Camaro No. 001 last November at the SEMA Show and includes a personalized look created by Chevrolet and NHRA Funny Car driver Courtney Force. It features a Red Hot exterior color with Courtney Force-signature graphics and red-accented grille trim.

'I was extremely honored to work with Chevrolet and help design the 2016 COPO Camaro,' said Courtney Force. 'The bright red color and the signature slash marks towards the back on the car bring a part of my Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car to the COPO Camaro, which I think is really cool. The proceeds from this car go to a great cause and benefit the United Way, so it's an awesome project all around.'

Under its carbon-fiber high-rise hood is a 350 racing engine with a Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger. Inside is a chrome-moly roll cage, lightweight racing bucket seats personalized with the COPO logo and Courtney Force's signature, five-point safety harnesses and a floor-mounted shifter for the THM-350 automatic transmission. The instrument panel contains racing gauges and a competition switch panel.

Every COPO Camaro is built by hand starting with production hardware, including the same body in white used for production models. The COPO Camaro takes its name from the Central Office Production Order system used in the 1960s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options. Dealers utilized this system to put high performance powertrains into production Camaro's.

The 2016 Chevrolet COPO Camaro serial number 001, lot number 3005, will go across the block at approximately 7 p.m. EDT on Friday, Jan. 29.
