Chevrolet’s a single-of-a-variety, 9-2nd electrical Camaro drag racer that went up for auction on consignment in the course of Monterey Auto Week will not be going to a new house.

The eCOPO Camaro did not seem amongst Russo and Steele’s August auction revenue benefits, Muscle Vehicles &amp Trucks reported, and the auction property confirmed that Chevrolet’s monster electrical drag racer was a no-sale. Even though Russo and Steele does not seem to have elaborated on why, we assume bidding merely failed to meet the auction’s reserve cost.

Designed with help from Hancock and Lane Racing, the eCOPO Camaro debuted at the 2018 SEMA demonstrate in Las Vegas. Its dual electrical motors create a lot more than 700 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque and are mated to a standard automated transmission. 

Like the Porsche Taycan, the eCOPO Camaro boasts an 800-volt electrical technique to hasten charging—a necessity for drag racing, in which time amongst runs can be constrained. 4 200-volt batteries include 175 lbs every single to the eCOPO Camaro’s curb fat, but the packs are mounted rearward to increase its fat distribution, occupying what usually would be the rear seat and trunk spot.

Chevrolet’s set its sights on a 9-2nd run, which the staff nailed in February. Considering that, it has run a 9.51-2nd quarter mile at a lot more than 140 mph.

From the subtle decision of an Electrical Blue paint finish to the in-your-encounter lightning bolts on its hood, the eCOPO Camaro embraces its electrical theme with gusto. 

The eCOPO Camaro served as a climate balloon to measure curiosity in electrical crate-motor manufacturing. Even though a complete-fledged plan has however to be announced, Chevy created the driveline mate with its corporate LS V-eight transmission bellhousings to inspire long term DIY conversions ought to demand ever materialize.

We assume this will not be the final time this a single-off drag monster is presented to the public. Keep tuned.
