Camaro Z/28, COPO Camaro Raise $1.35M for Charity

The first Chevrolet 2014 Camaro Z/28 sold for $650,000 at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Given how big of a Chevy enthusiast Rick Hendrick is, it’s no surprise that the winning bid went to him. Hendrick will receive the first retail production Z/28 sporting a 7.0-liter V8 engine with 505 hp and 481 lb-ft of torque. The 2014 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 will be priced from $75,000 when it hits dealerships later this year. All proceeds from the Z/28 auction will go to benefit Cornerstone Schools which has provided the children in Detroit an excellent education for over 21 years.

The 2014 Chevrolet COPO Camaro netted $700,000 for the Achilles Freedom Team of Wounded Veterans and is a drag-only race car. The new COPO Camaro can be had with either a supercharged 350 cubic-inch V8 or a naturally aspirated 369- or 427-cubic-inch engine.

    Looks nice… seems like a dud though.

  • Honest Abe

    I’d much rather an Audi A5

    “No one is ever going to call this a fast car”… 6.3 seconds is pretty quick… Average for a new car is something like 8.5 so a 2 drop is gonna be noticed. It might not feel fast, but it’ll outrun most vehicles on the road…

    You’re absolutely right. Keep in mind, a $60,000 Mercedes should be faster than most ‘average’ cars.

    But throughout the powerband you never really feel a big rush of acceleration. It is smooth and delivers its 302 hp in a non-dramatic way. Which promotes that comfortable luxury agenda.
