Barrett-Jackson’s Scottsdale auction will play host to a COPO Camaro designed by legendary racer John Force. This particular drag-racing beast will be auctioned off for charity. Based on previous vehicles designed by Force, we expect to see a price close to $1M when the hammer drops. The one-of-a-kind COPO Camaro carries its own unique style, sporting a black-and-silver color scheme displaying crimson trim details, and a bulging hood showing off a ghosted American flag.
Chevy has been building COPOs since 2012, with only sixty-nine of them being produced per year. Because of their low availability, their prices can be quite high, and Chevy estimates that the COPO line has raised as much as $2M for charity so far. The John Force 2020 COPO Camaro has all the standard fare for a Camaro of its lineage, but comes with a few unique odds and ends to go with it. The ID plate reads “2020COPO-FORCE,” and the buyer gets a custom helmet and fire suit to match the caliber of the vehicle. But then again, what else did you expect from a car designed by a 16-time National Hot Rod Association (NHRA) champion?
While this John Force COPO Camaro is only available at the auction, Chevrolet has offered buyers of its 2020 COPO Camaro line the option to trick out their vehicle’s paint to look like the John Force edition. The 2020 COPO Camaro comes with a revised version of the LSX-based 350 engine, sporting a 2.65L supercharger manufactured by Magnuson. Combined with the LSX-based naturally-aspirated 427 engine, it’s no wonder this car sprints around the track so fast. Additionally, buyers can opt for the Racer’s Package, including dual batteries, a carbon-fiber air-inlet, and quick-change coupling, which works with the supercharged engine. Is there any wonder why these cars are in such demand?
