ECopo Camaro Fails to Electrify at Auction

The nine-second electric Camaro from SEMA last year that went up for auction last month? Turns out that it didn’t find a buyer.

That’s a shame. The eCopo Camaro was one of the big hits of the 2018 SEMA show. Boasting a pair of electric motors in place of the usual V8, but hooked up to a conventional Turbo 400 automatic gearbox. It made more than 700 hp and 600 lb-ft of torque, letting it clock quarter-mile times in the nines.

This was a seriously cool car, and it really showed what electrification could mean to more conventional though widely entered motorsports like drag racing.

The car was expected to bring around half a million dollars at the Russo and Steele Monterey auction, in what seemed like a reasonable estimate for a car like this. Especially one that actually had a VIN, unlike most concepts that are tape, hopes, and dreams.

But according to Musclecarsandtrucks.com, the car did not sell. Meaning that no new buyer found themselves with an electric monster on its way to their house. No word on what the top bid was, but we’ll update if we find out. If you were hoping for a production eCopo, then this probably doesn’t help the cause.
