2012 COPO Camaro Build Process: Behind The Scenes

Follow Nelson

Chevrolet's COPO Camaro drag racer is under construction, and this is an inside look at the cars as they undergo conversion from run-of-the-mill Camaro bodies-in-white into full-on race cars.

The photos, from The Block, a Chevrolet Performance website, show the cars in various states of completion, and, for the first time, in colors other than white. Only a handful of colors are available, including black, Victory Red, Silver Ice Metallic, and Ashen Gray Metallic.

Only 69 COPO Camaros are to be built this year, and even given their non-highway use (they don't come with a VIN number) and $89,000 price tag, there's likely to be a bit of clamoring going on over any that aren't already reserved.

The 2012 Chevy COPO Camaro drag racer is available with one of three engines: a normally-aspirated 7.0-liter V-8, and a pair of supercharged 5.3-liter V-8s. A special collector package including all three engines, with one pre-installed in the car, is available.
