The No. 001 2015 Chevrolet COPO Camaro crossed the 2015 Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction block over the weekend. While the Chevrolet claims the COPO Camaro is capable of running the quarter mile in mid-eights, the supercharged Abalone White drag car only managed to pull in less than half the amount of the 2014 COPO Camaro that was auctioned off by Barrett-Jackson, which went for $700,000.
We’re kind of surprised by the result, considering the unique livery for the 2015 COPO Camaro and the fact that the 2015 model year is going to be the last of this current generation. It’s still a big mystery whether or not Chevrolet Performance will continue the COPO program with the sixth-generation, 2016 Camaro rollout.
Just as the first ever retail produced Cadillac CT6 that was auctioned off, all proceeds of the COPO Camaro were donated to charity. The proceeds were given to a veterans non-profit organization known as Achilles Freedom Team, which provides a supportive community for disabled war vets, children, and athletes.
