Chevrolet introduced the 2020 COPO Camaro John Force Edition at the 2019 SEMA Show in Las Vegas earlier this month. The one-of-a kind COPO brings together the legacies of Chevrolet‘s factory drag racer and the 16-time NHRA champion driver in a unique, distinctively-styled and supercharged race car that will be auctioned for charity. We caught up to the one-off model at the 2019 SEMA show, and are now bringing you this live photo gallery.
The black-and-silver paint scheme gives the race car a tasteful base on which to build on. The paint, which is available as a build option for the 2020 COPO Camaro, is then accentuated by red pinstripes on the front and rear ends as well as the roof. The John Force signature is present on the hood and rear fender. A gray version of the American flag adorns the hood, while a John Force ribbon is attached to the rear bumper, just to the side of the “push off” switch.
The red accent theme continues to the interior, on to the steering wheel, vent surrounds, and seat bolsters. The John Force signature, also in red, adorns the passenger-side dash.
The 2020 COPO Camaro John Force Edition carries a unique “2020COPO-FORCE” identification plaque and is considered a unique build in the COPO Camaro range. As such, it’s not part of the annual production run of 69 COPO Camaro drag race cars.
Since 2012, Chevrolet has produced 552 COPO Camaros, which comes out to only 69 per year, making them incredibly rare factory race cars. During that time, a total of five COPO Camaros have crossed the auction block for charity, raising nearly $2 million for a variety of important causes. Interestingly, the most recent example – the eCOPO Camaro – failed to sell at a recent auction.
Chevrolet will auction the 2020 COPO Camaro John Force Edition at the 2020 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale event in January. Proceeds will go to DonorsChoose.org.
