Video: Chevrolet COPO Camaro breaks nine-second, quarter-mile run with 8.88-second time

When Chevrolet built the COPO Camaro to run in the National Hot Rod Association, it did so with the expectations of it being a true world-beater.

While Chevrolet’s faith on the COPO Camaro has always been unquestioned, the car still turned a number of heads at a recent drag event by breaking the nine-second, quarter-mile barrier without even breaking a sweat.

In this video, the rocket of a car ran its 327-cubic-inch engine with a 4.0-liter blower and blasted it from a stand-still position to a quarter-mile time of just 8.88 seconds at a speed of 142.09 mph.

Compared to past performances of the COPO Camaro’s chief rivals, particularly the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet and the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak , those cars have some serious catching up to do if they hope to keep up with the COPO Camaro’s blistering quarter-mile time.

Check out the video and see how scintillatingly fast the COPO Camaro really is.

The 8-second time is a tough time and really hard to beat. I’m looking forward to on the event that there will be a car that will beat the recorded time of the COPO.

8.8 seconds is really amazing. I never though Camaro has got what it takes to break a nine-second record. Good one.
