First COPO Camaro Drag Runs!!!!!


Featured on Camaro5 HOMEPAGE

http://www.lsxtv.com/news/video-copo...-at-bradenton/

by: Paul Huizenga

Quote:
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…

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

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.
