Lingenfelter LS9 Camaro SS breaks 10-second quarter mile time - three times!

A few months ago, tuning house Lingenfelter ran their LS9-powered 2010 Chevrolet Camaro SS to a quarter-mile run of 10.46 seconds at speeds of 139.95 mph. Pretty impressive, right?

Apparently, it wasn’t impressive enough for the boys at Lingenfelter.

The tuning house brought their beast of a machine out once again at the Muncie Dragway over the weekend and proceeded to set three staggering 9-second quarter mile runs with a top time of 9.974 seconds at a speed of 141.64 mph. The other two recorded times were 9.993 seconds at 140.38 mph and 9.979 seconds at 142.04 mph.

To make things even more impressive, the entire run was done on a race strip with an altitude of 3,600 feet and a temperature of 88 degrees with 75 percent humidity.

Talk about stomping your old record and kicking it on the curb, which is exactly what the boys from Lingenfelter did and did so convincingly.

this car was soon modified to about 400 hp. with this car i dished out my revenge on mustangs and imports until 2001 when i bought my 10th anniversary firehawk. this car has been modified to about 500 hp and has 4.10 gears. i love this car and I’m very sad that Pontiac iconic muscle car is gone forever.

i really enjoyed your story about the 4th gen f bodies. as a owner of a 2001 10th anniversary fire hawk i have ruined the day of many a mustang driver, but in 1989 i was an owner of a 1988 iroc-z with a 305 and fell prey to many 5.0 mustangs and turbocharged 4 bangers. i actually started losing respect for the generals muscle cars until i drove a 1993 black trans am at the Pontiac dealer i worked at.

OK, I like the way the hennessy camaro looks, but atleast with lingenfelter you will get your car back.

Great job! At those condition they even smashed their record one at a time.

haha the LS9 has pushed to the very limits. dang I’m so
impressed with the engine tune up.

I’m not particularly impressed. As much HP and torque as it has, it should have done better. At least it’s as fast as the old ones though right?
