Barrett-Jackson: Chevy COPO Camaro Convertible sells for $400,000 image

The 2012 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Convertible has recently found a new owner during the Barrett-Jackson auction, who had to pay exactly 400,000 for the muscle car.

After the North American based automaker Chevrolet has announced a few weeks ago that the COPO Camaro Convertible will be auctioned at Barrett-Jackson, the muscle car is being placed into the spotlights once again, this time with the car manufacturer telling us that the model in question has found a new owner. The highest bidder had to pay 400,000 USD for the COPO Camaro Convertible and the money will be donated to the American Heart Association.

The winner has taken home the Inferno Orange Metallic COPO Camaro Convertible, equipped with the 327-cubic-inch V8 engine, with a 4.0 liter supercharger, which is producing a total output of 550 HP. Power is being sent to the rear-wheel drive through a three-speed Powerglide automatic transmission. The 2012 Chevrolet Camaro COPO Convertible is the only one ever sold because the other one will not leave the General Motors Heritage Center anytime soon. Rumor has it that the carmaker will produce another 69 units of the COPO Camaro Convertible but this is yet to be confirmed.
