Chevrolet also offered its drag-racing Camaro with your choice of two other naturally aspirated options-a 410-hp 6.2-liter V-8 and a 470-hp 427-cubic-inch V-8.

Chevrolet generally uses the SEMA Show in Las Vegas to introduce the newest COPO Camaro drag auto and at the 2018 show, we get to meet the 2019 production version of the track-only machine. Suitably called the eCOPO Camaro, it is based on the 2019 rendition of the Chevy exemplary and has an electric engine that can give what might as well be called more than 700 horsepower and 600 lb-ft of torque. The traction battery works under 800 volts!

The auto is still undertaking tests but Chevrolet believes that the vehicle can run the quarter mile in 9.0 seconds just fine. The electric motor is powered by a battery pack with four 175 pounds, 200-volt modules, spread throughout the vehicle for even weight distribution.

The auto is all-electric, driven by a motor that provides over 700 horsepower and 600 pound feet of torque. The Turbo 40 automatic gearbox remained the same, as well as the cardan transmission and rear differential in the crankcase of a continuous axle. The eCOPO's battery is made up from four 200-volt modules, two under the rear seats and two in the trunk.

Featuring a special Anniversary Blue Metallic exterior color that pays homage to the original Laguna Blue offered in 1969, the SEMA show vehicle previews the special color and graphics of the COPO Camaro 50th Anniversary Special Edition package offered for 2019. Roll cage rearwards has been extended to protect the batteries from crash or accidents.

The eCOPO Camaro's electric motor has the same bell house mounting pattern and crankshaft flange as the popular LS-family engines in Chevrolet's crate engine portfolio. eCOPO concept points towards a future that could include electric crate motors for racing. "We're not there yet, but it's something we're exploring".
