2019 COPO Camaro SEMA Show Car Previews 50th Anniversary Special Edition

Chevrolet introduced an anniversary-themed 2019 COPO Camaro at the 2018 SEMA Show as a tribute to the original 1969 model.

Celebrating 50 years of the special order drag racer, the 2019 COPO Camaro features a custom Anniversary Blue Metallic exterior color. The SEMA show car’s paint pays homage to the original Laguna Blue offered in 1969. It also previews the special color and graphics of the COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Special Edition offered for 2019.

As before, the COPO Camaro features an exclusive front-end design that’s not shared with other production Camaro models.

The show car also packs a 50th Anniversary Engine Appearance Package that reminds of vintage Chevy performance engines. It features an orange engine block, chrome valve covers and a black high-rise intake manifold.

Customers can have the package with the naturally aspirated LSX-based 427 (7.0-liter) racing engine. The 2019 COPO Camaro’s engine lineup also includes a revised version of the supercharged, LSX-based 350 (5.7-liter) engine, now featuring a 2.65L Magnuson supercharger. A 302-cubic-inch (4.9-liter) power plant is the third choice.

Chevrolet will build only 69 2019 COPO Camaro race cars. That’s exactly the same number of 1969 COPO Camaro models built with the all-aluminum 427 ZL1 engine. Prospective buyers can register here for a chance to purchase this limited edition Chevy.

The carmaker brought back the COPO Camaro in 2012, following the debut of a COPO Camaro race car concept at the SEMA Show a year earlier. At this year’s SEMA Show, Chevrolet has also unveiled the eCOPO Camaro Concept, an electrified drag racer based on the 2019 COPO Camaro.

    At least in two pics, it looks like a metal toy car.

      That was also my impression Bash the Stampede.

      It looked like a Hot Wheels die cast with overly exaggerated bodywork and paint scheme.

        Exactly 😀

    I guess Chevy will use this bumper on all SS models now. Still looks ugly as hell. This front end just doesn’t work with the rest of the car.

    I’ll just leave my photoshop here, in case Chevy would like some inspiration for a revised front clip:

      but that doesnt even look good either….and why would Chevy get inspiration from a comment on a car blog? lol

    • Dennis James

      This looks worse than the already worse current design.

      • LJ

        I’ve gotten a ton of compliments on it from other car sites, but thanks for the feedback!

        • Nordschleife

          It’s their opinion but I disagree.

    • Ishliss

      You just photo shopped the front off the new blazer onto the Camaro. Hardly a design of your own.

      • LJ

        Exactly right. I thought the new Blazer RS’s front end design cues would look great on the Camaro and I think the combo works really well. Of course, mine is just a crude photoshop I put together in about 5 minutes, but you get the idea. Thanks for the feedback!

    • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

      Well seeing as you’ve just pasted on the front end of the blazer, it seems that it was chevy who inspired you.

      • LJ

        And seeing that the entire rest of the car is a Camaro, I’d say you’re right. Great work detective!

        • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

          Yeh, maybe try not to pass off your shitty cut n paste jobs as original work next time douchebag.

          • LJ

            Combining two different to vehicles would be original, but thanks for the sweet advice dude!

          • Thetruthísntalwayspopular

            You’re an idiot.

          • LJ

            What an intelligent and well thought out response.

  • Jerry Hightower

    50th anniversary minus a few years. Mustang, the only pony car continuously made for 54 years!

  • LJ

    Thanks man. I know the difference between constructive criticism and Internet dbags who troll for attention because no one in real life gives them any.
