When we saw the debut of the all-new sixth generation COPO Camaro at last year’s SEMA show, we couldn’t wait to see someone get their hands on one.
It looks like that time has finally come, as GM will be auctioning off its first ’16 COPO Camaro (the same one which debuted at SEMA 2015) at the world-famous Barrett-Jackson auction show in Scottsdale, Arizona this weekend.
GM and Barrett-Jackson have teamed up to create a special opportunity for the all-new COPO Camaro and its new owner, as the proceeds from the auction will be donated in full to benefit United Way, the world’s largest privately-funded non-profit-organization. United Way has over 1.6-million volunteers and almost 10-million donors and supporters, so it’s easy to see why GM has recognized their commitment. “I was extremely honored to work with Chevrolet and help design the 2016 COPO Camaro,” said Courtney Force. “The bright red color and the signature slash marks towards the back on the car bring a part of my Traxxas Chevrolet Camaro Funny Car to the COPO Camaro, which I think is really cool. The proceeds from this car go to a great cause and benefit the United Way, so it’s an awesome project all around.”
The event is planned to commence this Friday, January 29th, 2015 – so if you’re in the market for a hand-built, Whipple supercharged, first serial numbered drag racing oriented musclecar, why not check out the Barrett-Jackson auction if you’re in the Scottsdale area?
