Last week, Chevrolet began delivery of its COPO Camaro, with only 69 ever to be sold for all drag racing enthusiasts nationwide. And just like that, one of them has conquered the quarter mile in 8.88 seconds.

This particular COPO Camaro features the 5.3-liter supercharged V8 and easily proves that the COPO Camaro is the fastest Camaro model ever built. According to the video poster, it is vehicle number 3, but essentially the first vehicle to head into the hands of owners. Vehicle number 1 was a prototype, while number 2 is heading to a museum.

We’re not entirely convinced that the car was untouched before it went to the track, but if it is indeed stock, the Ford Mustang Cobra Jet and the Mopar Challenger Drag Pak have their work cut out for them.
