While most of us are waiting for the 556 hp (415 kW / 548 PS) Camaro Z/28, Canadian Serge Leger has decided to make us all jealous.

He commissioned this impressive dragster which features a 6.0-liter LSX V8 engine, a 91mm Turbonetics turbocharger, a 5-inch downpipe, a custom intake manifold, and a 6-inch intercooler. Thanks to these modifications, the engine produces an estimated 1400 hp (1044 kW / 1419 PS) and 900 lb-ft (1219 Nm) of torque.

As you'd expect, the Camaro needed some serious upgrades to handle all this power. Changes include a strengthened unibody, a Moser 9-inch rear end, a TCI 4L80E transmission, QA1 coilovers, and a Baer braking system (with 6-piston calipers clamping onto 355mm discs).

Instead of the traditional racing interior, Leger outfitted his car with Italian leather upholstery, a Pioneer audio system, and a Mac Mini with 3G / WiFi connectivity.

All in all, the transformation cost $320,000 and required 3800 man hours to build.
