The sixth-generation Camaro just started hitting dealer showrooms about two months ago. Around that same time, Chevrolet Performance was pulling the cover off the all new 2016 COPO Camaro at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.

With just 69 examples to be built for 2016, the new COPO comes with either a 350 cubic inch Whipple supercharged, a 427 cubic-inch naturally aspirated engine, or a LT based 376 cubic-inch engine. The new COPO is also 133 pounds lighter than its predecessor thanks to the smaller and lighter design of the sixth-gen.

With winter blanketing much of the country, Chevrolet recently sent a crew and a new COPO to Bradenton Motorsports Park in Bradenton, Florida for some 2016 COPO testing. Chevrolet was silent on the numbers or any other data regarding this test, including which engine combination is being tested in these photos and video recently released.

With the 2016 NHRA season starting in less than a month, and the 2016 NMCA season kicking off in March, those with orders for COPO Camaros are probably curious as to what kind of performance they can expect from Chevrolet’s new factory stocker. With an all-new Cobra Jet from Ford to contend with as well the new COPO is not without competition.

No word yet on when deliveries will begin for 2016 COPO Camaros, with a wide array of engine options, and an improved chassis, 2016 could be a year of COPO dominance.
