2014 Chevrolet Camaro COPO Reviews

Each production car is fitted with a NHRAapproved roll cage and other security equipment, along with racing chassis and suspension parts - including an original solid rear axle system as opposed to the regular-creation Camaro's separate rear axle.
The newly constructed racing engines contain a modified variant of the naturally aspirated 427 engine and super-charged variant of the 350 engine introduced in 2013. It'll have a 2.9L Whipple screwtype supercharger. Naturally-aspirated 396 and 350 engines may also be accessible. Clients choose the engine predicated on their planned NHRA racing group. They can still buy all four engines, each serialized to fit the auto.

"The new engines is likely to make the racing more exciting and COPO motorists more competitive."
