Although the most well-known and sought-after COPO Camaros are likely of the 1969 vintage, it’s hard to deny that the modern COPO units are desirable units in their own right. Intended for the race track and built with no VIN, these Camaros are also not eligible to be driven on public roads, which can make buying and selling these muscle cars difficult. Now, it appears as though one 2020 Chevy Camaro COPO was recently sold on Copart.
Although Copart usually sells crashed vehicles, this new 2020 Camaro COPO was recently auctioned off by the online service. According to the listing, this muscle car was donated and sold for charity, with a final bid of $100,000. Notably, it’s unclear exactly who donated the car.
It’s worth noting that as a vehicle with no VIN, this COPO Camaro was sold with a Bill of Sale, and doesn’t list the current mileage.
As a reminder, General Motors relaunched the COPO program in 2012, and even did an all-electric version called the eCOPO. Since then, new models have kept the COPO tradition of being purpose-built race cars with the sole intention of ripping down the quarter-mile.
To that end, the 2020 COPO Camaro was available with one of three powerplant options, including a naturally aspirated 302 V8 producing an NHRA-rated 360 horsepower, a naturally aspirated 427 V8 producing an NHRA-rated 470 horsepower, and a supercharged 350 V8 producing an NHRA-rated 580 horsepower. No matter the engine option, a GM three-speed automatic transmission routed the power to the rear wheels.
The 2020 Chevy Camaro COPO also had 13 heritage colors on offer, along with an available John Force Edition graphics package. Pricing for the race car started at $117,500, and could reach up to $165,750 when fully loaded.
