SEMA 2016 is finally upon us, which tells us we are in the heart of auto show season! Of course SEMA separates itself from the pack by offering a venue for manufacturers and aftermarket tuners alike to strut their stuff and show off what modifications are possible given the right time and budget.
Being a popular platform for modification since its birth, Chevy has unsurprisingly pulled out all the stops at this year’s SEMA, to highlight what its various platforms are capable of, including the 2017 COPO Camaro. TFL’s Roman Mica got a chance to walk through Chevy’s whole SEMA display to see what sort of collaborative special editions the American automaker could come up with
What is especially cool about the Chevy display is the fact that Chevy have chosen to build on a wide variety of platforms, ranging from the obvious choice in the Camaro, to a perhaps not-so-obvious choice in the Trax, and a large selection of various trucks featuring both performance and visual modifications that set these vehicles apart from their stock counterparts.
Of course there is one Chevy in particular that stole the show for us, being the 2017 COPO Camaro. Every year Chevy makes 69 COPO Camaros as a way for drag racing enthusiasts to buy a Camaro that is ready to hit the drag strip straight out of the box. Featuring massive drag radials in the back, wheelie bars, a parachute, and of course an extremely supercharged engine making downright silly amounts of power (ranging from 410 to 580 hp) to match the equally ridiculous hood, the COPO Camaro not only looks the part of a highly competitive dragster, but should be able to lay down the times to match.
To see the rest of these fantastically modified vehicles, be sure to watch the full video. For more SEMA 2016 coverage be sure to keep your eyes on TFLcar.com as we will cover the entire show through November 4th.
