This massive big block power unit is said to be General Motor’s largest V8 in a car to date.
Chevrolet has unveiled the 2022 COPO Camaro. The muscle car comes with three engine options, including a massive 9.4-litre naturally-aspirated V8 petrol engine. This massive big block power unit is said to be General Motor’s largest V8 in a car to date.
The V8 engine features a cast-iron block with aluminium heads, forged steel crankshafts & connecting rods and forged aluminium pistons. However, even with the massive displacement, the 9.4-litre V8 produces just 430 BHP – making it’s the least powerful unit of the three offered in the 2022 COPO Camaro.
The other two power units include a 7.0-litre naturally aspirated V8 producing 470 BHP and a relatively smaller 5.7-litre supercharged V8 churning out 600 BHP. Prices for the 2022 COPO Camaro start from US$ 105,500 for the ‘entry-level’ 9.4-litre V8 variant and go up to around US$ 130,000 for the supercharged V8 model.
Having said that, the COPO Camaro models aren’t street legal, but can be used on the NHRA’s stock and super stock drag race events.
The COPO version of the Chevrolet Camaro comes with a carbon-fibre bonnet, wheelie bars and drag race tyres as standard. The top-spec trim with the supercharged V8 also features a parachute, while offered as an option on the lower variants.
