2014 Chevrolet Camaro
With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.

COPO, one of the most magical names in Chevrolet performance, lives again in this extraordinary 2014 COPO Camaro. Originally a work-around for clever dealers to use special ordering channels to spec out supercars not normally available, the COPO (Central Office Production Order) system became the source of some of the most electrifying supercars ever created. Bringing the concept forward was an idea too good to be left alone. The COPO Camaro was reintroduced in 2012, 2013, 2014 and again in 2015. As a tribute to the low-production 1969 ZL1 Camaros, assigned COPO number 9560, production for the modern COPO Camaros was limited to only 69 per year between 2012 and 2015. The performance potential of the modern COPO Camaro is staggering, surpassing even the original 1969 ZL1’s performance envelope by a wide margin. This 2014 COPO Camaro has run an elapsed time of 8.864 seconds at 156.60 MPH at Florida’s Bradenton Motorsports Park. For comparison, a ZL1-spec 1969 Camaro runs mid-11 second elapsed times at the Pure Stock Drags, a race for stock and original muscle cars. Dramatic double black, this car is No. 58 of 69 built for 2014, and features a highly powerful supercharged 350 V-8 engine teamed to a race-tuned TH400 3-speed automatic transmission. A carbon-fiber hood trims vehicle weight, and this car is equipped with the optional wheelie bars, allowing for an even harder launch. As a vehicle capable of terminal speeds of more than 150 MPH in the quarter-mile, this COPO Camaro is required by NHRA to have a parachute to help decelerate after a run. That’s extreme. Acknowledging the extreme nature of a COPO Camaro, Chevrolet chose to make it even more tightly focused, to the point that the 2014 COPO Camaro is a purpose-built quarter-mile racer that cannot be registered or operated on the street as a passenger car.
