Chevy releases COPO Camaro concept drag racing featurette

Chevy COPO Camaro drag video

It seems you can’t offer a pony car these days without also making available a full race-spec drag racing version. Ford was first with its Cobrajet, then came Dodge with the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak, and soon we’ll have an offering from Chevy.

That car will be based on the COPO Camaro Concept, which debuted last month at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas and whose name, COPO, harkens back to a time when sly dealers could order a Corvette-powered Camaro from the factory without the big wigs knowing. But unlike most concept cars, the COPO Camaro Concept is a rolling prototype for the production version that’s to follow.

As such, engineers from General Motors have been working on the car’s development for over three years, and today they released a video featurette showing the concept’s first run out in the real world. According to the video, engineers ran the car all day long with a number of engine set ups and it “met or exceeded” all expectations.

Watch the video for yourself after the jump. Now all we need is some three-lane drag strips to see these straight line ponies face off at the same time.
