The 2020 COPO Camaro was announced during the 2019 SEMA Show, culminated by an even more special one-of-one John Force Edition car that celebrates the achievements of the NHRA racer. But if you’ve been watching this space closely, you already knew that. But as we do here at MC&T, we’ve made it our mission to deliver you even more substance than you may be used to.
New for the 2020 COPO Camaro is a collection of vintage color options from 1969. And Chevrolet had taken the time to make little casts of Camaro silhouettes air brushed in every hue available. Our exclusive gallery below showcases each one of them, where you can easily visualize what one of these fully built NHRA race cars would look like.
There are seven throwback hues for the muscle car. These include: Hugger Orange, Butternut Yellow, Frost Green Poly, Olympic Gold Poly, Garnet Red, Fathom Green Poly and Azure Turquoise Poly. Standard COPO Camaro colors are otherwise Black, Summit White, Satin Steel Gray and Red. And if buyers desire, they can replicate the John Force Edition livery, as well.
Since its reintroduction in 2012, Chevrolet has produced 552 COPO Camaro race cars, allocating only 69 units per year that have to be acquired through a lottery system. During that time, five COPO Camaros have crossed the auction block for charity, raising nearly $2 million for a variety of important causes.

For the 2020 model year, the COPO Camao engine lineup has been tweaked. Chevrolet decided to drop the 302-cubic inch (5.0L) V8 from the 2019 model year, and in its place is a larger LSX-based, naturally aspirated 427 cubic-inch (7.0L) V8. A third motor is the LSX-based 350 engine with the 2.65L Magnuson supercharger, which is also found in the John Force Edition COPO Camaro. The revised engine also features all-new LSX-SC cylinder heads.
