We’re told that the first hit off the trailer was a 9.90 at 138 MPH, with several subsequent passes in the 9.70′s. The best run was a 9.69 at 140, with 60 foot times in the low 1.40′s. You can tell from the video that they’re launching soft, just off of idle – appropriate for the first time out in a brand new car.

Tonight, the team is swapping out the 2.9l-blown 327 and replacing it with the naturally aspirated 427 LSX engine, and changing rear gears. We hope to have numbers for that combination tomorrow, and we’ve been promised a professionally produced video with in-car footage by the end of the week, along with interviews of the team members.

Remember, at this point the COPO is still just a concept – to make it a reality, you’ll need to help out by going to GMPerformanceParts.com and getting on the COPO Camaro mailing list to show you’re interested…

I like that!!

Off idle? In this video? Impressive yes.
As for Why no ZL1 video like this, ask your insurance agent.

Awesome. Would feel more awesome being behind the wheel.:thumbsup:

Pure power.....

Good first run. Imagine it with a supercharged 6.2 or 7.0 under the hood. The COPO has a while until it matches the fastest Cobra Jet run though. I think the quickest Cobra Jet run was 8.47.

Because that would have been impressive! Not like a 12 second $60k car.
