The COPO Camaro is getting some tweaks for the 2013 model year, which will see 69 of the drag-racing Chevys built. 

The changes include two new engine options, a 325-hp 5.7-liter V8 and a 375-hp 6.4-liter V8, which join last year’s 7.0-liter V8 that puts out 425 hp. Other new options on the COPO Camaro include a manual transmission, new front springs, and some small tweaks to the styling.

Individuals interested in purchasing a COPO Camaro must enter a pool (at chevroletperformance.com) from which 69 buyers will randomly be selected. In 2012, more than 3,000 people were interested in buying one of the drag-strip only cars. Each car will get a sequenced build serial number matched to the engine, and will start at a base price of $86,000. All COPO Camaros come with an NHRA approved roll cage and safety equipment.

For an extra fee, COPO Camaro buyers can now participate in Chevy’s Performance’s Build Your Own COPO Engine program that allows the buyer to go to the brand’s plant in Wixom, Mich. and help assemble their motors.

Buyers interested in purchasing a COPO Camaro have until Thursday, March 7 to submit their name.
