Another novelty is ahead of us. It’s about the 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro. It comes with a new “Supercrush” orange with details of black striped color. This is very close to the 2018 Chevy Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition if you remember, and it’s not hard to remember one such car. SEMA Auto Show 2017 and Las Vegas is a good event where this model will be introduced. Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition can be ordered from anyone who is aged. However, the new 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is a kind of beast that is limited to only 69 copies, an interesting figure, is not it?
If we go back a bit, we will see that the COPO Camaro has a significant history behind. Already in 1969, for the first time will indicate the name of COPO, and one of the important reasons is that the Fred Gibb who otherwise Illinois tubing ordered 50 copies Camaros with specifics such as aluminum ZL-1 V-eighth, Chevy was very glad to meet and went to work, so that soon the models were ready. These are not everyday orders, but those with special insights. Also, another dealer ordered 19 copies of COPO Chamaros with similar characteristics. A larger order of 201 pieces was made by Yenko Chevrolet, with specifications like 427 cubic-inch iron-block V-8.
Chevy has made an extremely important decision, which is to launch its own creation of the unique COPO Camaro model in 2010. The reason is that in the past COPO Camaro was only one year old. For the next year, 16 generations of the new model are being prepared, and this marks a tradition that still takes place.

The exterior is specific to the model that comes and is naturally recognizable. The 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro is special and we would have to look a little bit about what happens in the 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition so as to best understand the exterior of the new model. Hot Vheels and Camaro have a common history of cooperation that is praiseworthy and which has once again come to the fore. The accent is placed on the 20-inch Satin Graphite wheels, as well as on the color that will come to expression and represent the outer appearance itself. The front of the bumper will be known for Hot Wheels badges. And adds Hot Wheels inside the vehicle. The type of vehicle that will have this can be both convertible and coupe with 2LT or 2SS packages. According to these ice and a special driving force that runs from the 2.0-liter turbo-four, over the medium-sized version of the 3.6-liter V-6 to 6.2-liter V-8.
Customers will be able to post the 2018 COPO Camaro with a vehicle whose exterior will have a bright Supercrush with an orange-colored recognizable color and details of black cancer that stretches over an orange color. The front-end boots with Hot Wheels will also be included in the story. It can be said that this similarity ends here. The Hot Wheels 50 logo was used by the COPO model to create certain items or even more so, copying. Slim front tires, ram-air hood high mounted, parachute and discs are just some of the specifics. Small backgrounds and mirrors are omitted. Some things are left out so that the weight is reduced.
If we are talking about the interior and reducing the weight of the vehicle, the 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro has changes on this issue. What remains in place is the instrument panel, the door panels and the steering wheel. This time the vehicle gets a standard seat instead of NHRA nominal seats with five lashing belts. The driver and passenger are under the protection of a specially made cage or protective net. If we start with the control features, here are A-pillar-mounted tachometer, a set of analogue measuring meters, instead of the infotainment screen that is intended for controlling the ignition, there is a rocker switchesstarter motor, fuel pump and a shift light. The TH400, which has three speeds, is controlled by the ratchet shifter.
The vehicle’s driving power is based on several options. The first move with 427 cubic-inch, 7.0-liter V-8, followed by supercharged 350 cubic-inch V-8, 5.7 liter, and a new variant of 302 cubic-inch V-8. The LT1-based 6.2 liter that produces 410 horsepower is in the 2017 COPO and 2016 COPO, and will be replaced by 4.9 liters. The new 4.9-liter versus 6.2 liter LT1 is expected to hit a higher speed. What we expect is 7,000 rpm by the 302’s redline. Keep in mind that the model will be competitive with its 6.2-liter.
The Camaro Z / 28’s fifteenth generation is characteristic of the LS7 V-8, because the engine is based on the return 427. According to the hint, the engine should make 470 horsepower. It is necessary to mention a combination of 2.9-liter with cold air and supercharged 5.7-liter with LSX small block. Last year, the engine received the NHRA certificate for just 580 horsepower and 8,000 rpm. It’s a serious matter where the new COPO runs 160 mph for a quarter of a mile.
There is still no information about the price list for the 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro. We can only look back and compare with previous COPO models from 2016 and 2017 that ranged between $ 90,000 and $ 110,000. Depending on what you want from the accessories such a price and price change. Chevy will definitely bring the price to a higher level during the Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary. 2018 Camaro Hot Wheels 50th Anniversary Edition should be scrubbed for about $ 4,995.
