Chevrolet Performance 2012 Catalog Featuring COPO Camaro Now Available
Chevy gearheads can rejoice. Chevrolet Performance has just released its first ever catalog, and it’s chock-full of performance and racing parts, engines and accessories for Chevrolet cars and trucks. It can be picked up at Chevrolet Performance dealerships (you’ll recognize it by the white Camaro on the cover) or downloaded from GMPerformanceParts, or those who prefer a hard copy can register through RacingJunk.com to have it shipped to their homes. Most of the items in the catalog can be bought online or through dealers.
The cover features the COPO Camaro concept vehicle that was shown off at the 2011 SEMA show in October. There’s an article on it in the magazine, with several strong hints that GM might actually put it into production, initially as a limited run of 50 cars. It wouldn’t be road legal and is meant, as was the 1969 original, for racing. They’d use the body from a production Camaro SS, with a built-in roll cage, custom suspension, racing bucket seats, and a choice of two engines, a 327 or a 427 cubic inch. COPO branding will be prominent. You can have any color you want as long as it’s white. If you’re interested, there’s a mailing list you can sign up for and they’ll let you know when/if they decide to build it. They also tell you what parts you need if you want to build your own.
