Video: World's Fastest Camaro Hits 253.1mph at Texas Mile

The 2012 Texas Mile run was an enormous success this year, which is evident in the number of records that were broken. We’ve already reported on the Hennessey Twin-Turbo Ford GT that now holds the new world record at the Texas Mile for standing mile, but it’s the Camaro’s turn to take its spot on the podium. A fourth generation Camaro has become the fastest standing mile Camaro in the world with an impressive top speed of 253.1 mph. It doesn’t beat out the Ford for fastest standing mile, but at least it broke the record for its own model.

This was obviously not a stock Camaro. It was built by Late Model Racecraft, owned by Kelly Bise, and driven to success by driver Josh Ledford. The car is powered by a twin-turbocharged engine that will deliver an amazing 1,809 horsepower.

The video shown here includes the impressive run, a series of in-car run images, and some burnouts. Enjoy the video and let us know what you think about the 2012 Texas Mile!

If that’s true then I think Camaro has a good chance of snatching the crown from Bugatti as the fastest supercar in the world.

It’s amazing to see the world’s fastest Camaro. But I think they should have made it more stylish to make this car more beautiful.

Maybe it’s lacking with the design, but the fact that it set a new world record for Camaro is astounding.

It’s undeniably powerful and fast, but unfortunately, those weren’t enough to impress me. It lacks a stylish design.

Maybe, just maybe, if its design is suited to my taste, I’d be one of its fans too. For now, I can only admire its performance.

Yes, it is speedy and powerful. However, what’s with the insufficient exterior design? It could have been more of an eye-candy if it’s made attractive.
