Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro Race Car To Be Auctionned Off

The one-off Chevy eCOPO Camaro that was unveiled at SEMA last year will soon be for sale.

In October of last year, General Motors unveiled, just ahead of its SEMA launch, the all-electric drag car, the 2019 Chevrolet eCOPO Camaro. Now, the car developed in partnership with Hancock and Lane Racing will be auctioned off at the Russo and Steele’s Collector Automobile Auctions during the Monterey Car Week.

The one-off beast has more than 700 hp and 600 ft/lb of torque at zero RPM, thanks to its electric powertrain. According to Chevrolet, the eCOPO Camaro is capable of doing the quarter mile in the 9-second range. During testing, it did a 9.51 at 140+mph pass.

“The eCOPO Concept is all about where we go in the future with electrification in the high performance space,” said Russ O’Blenes, director, Performance Variants, Parts and Motorsports at General Motors. “The original COPO Camaro program was all about pushing the envelope, and this concept is an exploration with the very same spirit.”

Since this car was made in partnership with Hancock and Lane Racing, we’re going to guess that they are the ones putting it for sale at that auction. The North Bend, Washington based company was chosen by GM not only for the team’s success in NHRA drag racing but also because of their involvement with Bothell High auto shop teacher Patrick McCue. McCue is the man behind “Shock and Awe”, an electric drag car built with his students.
