Atlanta Chevrolet, The Baddest Production Camaro…EVER

Your Atlanta Chevy dealer knows that everyone likes a fast car. We’ll this year Chevrolet will be producing 69 COPO Camaros which is Chevrolet’s second factory production car build specifically for racing, the first COPO Camaro being build in 1969. This car is strictly for the track. There is no VIN number associated with this production, just a serial number.

What does COPO stand for? According to notes from the video below:

COPO stands for Central Office Production Order, a process that was used in the ’60s for fleet managers to order unusual combinations of options. Dealer Fred Gibb figured out how to use the system to get GM to assemble cars that were never intended for production. He ordered 1969 Camaros that used a derivative of GM’s 427ci, all-aluminum ZL1 race engine, and bought enough of them to make them legal to compete as production cars in NHRA and AHRA drag racing. There were 69 ZL1 Camaros built in 1969, and Chevrolet is building the same number for 2012.

Check out the 2012 COPO Camaro:

Of course, this Camaro isn’t for everyone, but Chevrolet has a production version that might be more up your alley. If you are feeling the need for speed, check out our selection at your Atlanta Chevrolet dealer, the Southtowne General Motors Superstore
