The Chevy COPO Camaro Rips Out of the Box

This is what fast, loud, and smokin' is all about.

This video simply made our day and we're willing to bet that it'll do the same for you as well. Although it's less than a minute long, this video is 43 seconds of pure tire smoking drag strip glory as a Chevrolet COPO Camaro does an 8.88-second quarter-mile out of the box. Powered by a 327 cu in 5.3-liter V8 engine along with a 4.0-liter Whipple supercharger, this smoke and sound combination is simply incredible to see and hear. You will likely find yourself watching it more than once.

Chevrolet stated in the past that this power duo was fully capable of a quarter-mile time of less than 9 seconds. According to whoever posted this video, Chevy engineers were spot-on. Next up: a hopeful three-way shootout between the COPO Camaro, Ford Mustang Cobra Jet, and the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak. Truly epic indeed.
