Chevrolet Dresses 2014 Camaro Facelift in Drags

Making its first public appearance today at the SEMA aftermarket show is the revised, 2014 edition of Chevrolet’s COPO Camaro racer for the drag strip.

This the third year that GM is offering the COPO Camaro program and as with the previous two editions, only 69 race cars will be built for NHRA Stock Eliminator and Super Stock competition.

Customers will be able to choose from four different V8 powerplants, including a revised version of the naturally aspirated 427 cubic-inch (7.0-liters) unit, a 350 cubic-inch (5.7-liters) engine with a 2.9L Whipple screw-type supercharger, and the less dramatic, naturally aspirated 350 and 396 cubic-inch (6.5-liters) mills. Those who can afford it can also purchase all four engines, each serialized to match the car.

Besides the new front and rear ends, the 2014 model also includes new racing seats, updated graphics and a new, available wheel design.

All models come fitted with an NHRA-approved roll cage and other safety equipment, along with racing chassis and suspension components such as a unique solid rear axle system in place of a regular-production Camaro’s independent rear axle.

“The COPO is helping sportsman racers around the country put the Chevrolet bowtie in the winner’s circle and the 2014 cars will be even more competitive with the new engines,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports. “But the only way to get one of the new race cars is get your name on the COPO mailing list at chevroletperformance.com.”

We should note that the car pictured here with the serial number 1 is the only 2014 Camaro COPO to be painted in an Ice Blue Metallic shade and it will be auctioned off by Chevrolet Performance at Barrett-Jackson’s annual January event in Scottsdale, Arizona, with all proceeds to benefit the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans.
