Hand-built to change lives through the experience of its incredible track performance, the 2015 COPO Camaro racer has also changed the lives of the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans. The first of only 69 models was auctioned earlier this month with its $400,000 earnings donated to the team.
The Achilles Freedom Team is responsible for providing veterans with the necessary resources to participate in marathons while surrounded by a supportive community of teammates, friends, and family.
Aside from its unique vehicle identification number of 2015COPO001, what makes the first 2015 COPO Camaro so special that it is worth the price tag?
This specific vehicle traveled to Las Vegas last year for the reveal of the 2015 limited edition model. In addition, the No. 001 2015 COPO Camaro is the very same one the rest of the country has seen in Chevy’s various advertising initiatives. You’ve likely seen its Abalone White exterior with gray and orange accents and “15” graphics.
Under the hood, the vehicle features a 555-horsepower LSX-based racing engine with Whipple 2.9-liter supercharger and a three-speed automatic racing transmission.
“This sale gave the highest bidder the opportunity to buy the first of only 69 factory-assembled 2015 COPO Camaro race cars, the final year of the fifth-generation Camaro,” said U.S. vice president of Performance Vehicles and Motorsports, Jim Campbell. “Chevrolet was excited to offer this milestone Camaro to help a very worthy organization.”
