The Little Camaro That Could Sell for $300K

Updated February 17, 2016

Recently, a little red Camaro sold at a price tag most would deem high for a GM-produced sports car – $300,000. It garnered that amount at Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona late last month after being shown off at the 2016 SEMA show in November. So, what’s so special about this particular Camaro for it to sell at such a price?


For one thing, the auction was for charity, and all proceeds benefit the United Way. There’s a little more to it, however. This is a first edition of the sixth generation of the COPO Camaro, and it comes with the buyer’s choice of a supercharged 5.7-L V8 engine with a 2.9-L whipple supercharger, a 7.0-L engine, or an LT 6.2-L engine.


This isn’t the first time General Motors has auctioned off a first edition of the COPO Camaro, either; one sold at the same price last year. Despite much interest from Camaro enthusiasts in the model, the manufacturer only produces a limited amount of these – 69 units. That production number has remained the same since the first generation of this sports car, the original COPO-built ZL-1.
