Mecum Preview: 1-Of-1 Drag-Prepped COPO Chevy Camaro

This COPO Camaro is based on a 2020 version, one of only 69 to be built for the model year and the only example finished in Hugger Orange.

The modern muscle car wars dominating Detroit headlines for the past few years have resulted in some absolutely stunning cars, from the track-scalpel Shelby Mustang variants to the drag-strip dominating Dodge Challenger Demon and, arguably, the newly mid-engined C8 Chevy Corvette. But as great as the world’s most powerful roadgoing Ford sounds or as hilarious as the fact that the National Hot Rod Association deemed the Demon too unsafe to accept at the strip, neither of those cars can hold a candle to a new listing that will be featured as part of Mecum’s Kissimmee Summer Special 2020 auction event: a factory-prepped 2020 Chevrolet COPO Camaro.

Everything Anyone Could Need

COPO models have rightfully earned legendary status among fans of General Motors vehicles, the acronym standing for Central Office Production Order and usually signifying cars that were ordered straight from the factory with no intention of being driven on the street. This COPO Camaro is based on a 2020 version, one of only 69 to be built for the model year and the only example finished in Hugger Orange. Note the wheelie bars and brake parachute mounted at the rear, above.

Under The Hood

This Camaro is motivated by a 350ci V8 that benefits from a Magnuson supercharger. The engine bay looks clean and tidy, though Mecum’s listing does not list how many miles—or, more likely in this case, hours—the car has driven. COPO badging on the cold-air intake is matched by Chevrolet Performance and COPO badging on the exterior.
