ORLANDO, Florida — The final 2012 Chevrolet COPO Camaro Convertible will cross the auction block in January to benefit the American Heart Association.

It is expected to be one of the highlights of the 2013 Barrett-Jackson Scottsdale Auction.

The final 2012 production model bound for auction is the only 2012 COPO Camaro painted Inferno Orange Metallic. It is one of only two convertibles built for this production run. The other convertible has been "set aside by Chevrolet and isn't planned for public sale," said General Motors in a statement.

GM announced that due to "strong customer demand" it will produce another run of 69 COPO Camaros for 2013.

"The COPO Camaro program has been a special program and there's not a better way to close out the 2012 racing season than with the final — and most unique — one of the 2012 production run," said Jim Campbell, GM U.S. vice president of performance vehicles and motorsports, in a statement.

The last 2012 COPO Camaro is powered by the COPO 327 engine that features a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger for an NHRA-certified output of 550 horsepower. The car bound for auction is the only example built with a Turbo 400 three-speed automatic transmission.

Edmunds says: Expect this special Camaro to be snapped up quickly in January.
