It doesn’t matter what side you fall on, the muscle car wars have never been hotter now that Chevrolet has officially begun delivering its COPO Camaro to owners. 

As the fastest Camaro it has ever built, the COPO is aimed to fight with Ford’s Mustang Cobra Jet which is also a purpose-built drag car. In the Chevy’s case, there are three engine options: a naturally aspirated 7.0-liter V8, a 5.3-liter V8 featuring a 2.9-liter supercharger, and another 5.3-liter V8 with a 4.0-liter supercharger.

Not intended for street use, the car is built to NHRA specifications with a roll cage, solid rear axle and a Powerglide automatic transmission meant specifically for drag racing.

Pricing information is irrelevant at this point because every car is spoken for, but were you one of the lucky 69 new owners, you would know that the starting price for ownership is $89,000.
