Chevrolet announced today that the last 2012 COPO Camaro will be auctioned at the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction, in January. All of the auction’s proceeds will go to the American Heart Association. This unit is one of only two convertible models built in 2012. This also happens to be the only model that is painted Inferno Orange Metallic, and is driven by a 550-horsepower, 327-cubic-inch engine with a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger and a Turbo 400 three-speed automatic transmission.
With this occasion, Chevrolet also announced that another batch of 69 COPO units will be produced in 2013.
"The COPO Camaro program has been a special program and there’s not a better way to close out the 2012 racing season than with the final – and most unique – one of the 2012 production run,” said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports. “Chevrolet is proud to once again partner with the American Heart Association at Barrett-Jackson for the sale of this COPO Camaro convertible. It will make a great race car or collector vehicle for a lucky bidder, who will be buying a piece of history."
