Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to offer a very special 2018 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Hot Wheels Edition! This is the COPO Camaro specifically built for drag racing. A factory-built race car is available for purchase! This one has the Hot Wheels appearance package. Only 69 of these are built every year in recognition of the first COPO Camaros from 1969. This one is 1 of 28 made in the Hot Wheels package, and 1 of only 14 that came with the 350 LSX motor in 2018! This COPO is a one owner car and has yet to make a pass down the drag strip. You can be the first to pilot this instant classic down the track!Power is estimated at 1,200 horsepower! The engine is a high compression LSX 350 with a Whipple Super Charger forcing gobs of fresh air into this fire breathing Camaro. The performance division over at Chevrolet deserves an award. The execution of this build is spot on. Weight reduction was incorporated in every possible area and is down to an estimated 3,200 pounds. It comes stock with a set of Hoosier racing slicks, Strange axles and brake calipers, Trans brake, Wheelie bars, and a parachute. The chassis is NHRA certified and needs to be, as this thing is quick! The NHRA chassis certification is good for 8.50 seconds or slower. These COPO Camaros are capable of mid 8 seconds at 160 MPH! Yes, the wheelie bars are necessary. All four corners are using Strange adjustable coil-over shocks and Strange four-wheel disc brakes with slotted rotors. Wheels are wrapped in Hoosier drag tires. The front runners are 28.0x4.5 and 9.0x30 R15s for the rears. The rears are Hoosiers lightweight radial series.Inside will look a little familiar if youve ridden in a street version of the Camaro. There is still carpeting and a dashboard with an array of gauges, no speedo though, only the important vitals of this heavy hitter engine. In the center where the radio would normally be are all the necessary switches for controlling Ignition, Fuel Pump, Water pump for the intercooler, Headlights and an Auxiliary cooling fan. Amazingly it still has power windows and full door panels. Theres even a factory original steering wheel, although there is no power steering.This 2018 Chevrolet Camaro COPO is for sale in our Detroit Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

Our Detroit Showroom opened its doors in June of 2013 and is the fourth addition to Gateway Classic Cars. Detroit has been dubbed as the "Motor City Capital of the World" and has earned that title by being home base for American automobile manufacturers such as General Motors, Ford Motor Company and Dodge/Chrysler. Detroit is also home to the largest automotive gathering in the world, The Woodward Dream Cruise which is hosted annually on the 3rd weekend of August.
Our Detroit Showroom is located in historic "Ford Country" just footsteps from the Ford Motor Company World Headquarters building and a short drive to the General Motors World Headquarters located in the Renaissance Building in Downtown Detroit. Henry Ford once roamed these streets with Model T's, the Dodge brothers raced their way around city roads and extinct companies like Oldsmobile and Pontiac have left us fossils reminding us of the greatest era in automotive history, the muscle car era.
