One of the most impressive quarter-mile performances we've seen lately was achieved by this Chevrolet COPO Camaro. The vehicle is motivated by a 327 cu in 5.3-liter V8 engine along with a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger that allowed the car to do the quarter-mile in 8.88 seconds, without any other modifications.

Chevrolet previously mentioned that the recently introduced COPO Camaro is capable of doing the quarter-mile in less than 9 seconds, and now we have proof that it can do it.

There are other engine choices available for this model, including a naturally-aspirated V8 7.0-liter and another 5.3-liter V8 with a 2.9-liter supercharger. All three engines are mated to a Powerglide automatic gearbox that was specially developed for drag racing.

Available with a choice of five colors (Ashen Grey Metallic, Silver Ice Metallic, Victory Red, Summit White and Flat Black), the automaker plans on making only 69 units this year, with prices starting from $89,000. Deliveries have already started earlier this week.
