Isn't that Allanlambo vs Camaro SS which has run 11,[email protected]/4mile. Although in that video that Camaro doesn't look like 11,[email protected]/4mile fast :D Or then it's just that angle...

Even the following / film car is out pulling it

"When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle. Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked him to forgive me."

Yeah - the first race doesn't look so good for the V8!! ;) He only just 'has' it :)

oh....I guess most people in here don't know much about modern muscle cars..

actually, from late '80s, the more popular is to tune Buick Grand National....(runs much faster than Camaros or TransAm cars)

**someone mentioned the camaro runs 11sec in 1/4miles

(well, Buick Grand National can run under 10sec easily **for street legal)

it's very hard to get the Camaro to go under 10sec for street legal

I will like to see how a Lotus V8 vs a Grand National

True, out of the late 80'sthe GN and Turbo Trans Ams were some of the fastest cars. I also agree that it is easy to get more power out of those turbo sixes but not enough to get you into the 10's. I'm sorry but a 10 sec GN is not very streetable unless you have a low boost and a high boost setting, but then that wont net you a 10 sec timeslip on low boost. You could also get and automatic LS1 powerd Camaro or Firebird with heads, cam, small nitrous shot, high stall torque converter and sticky tires into the 10's. Simple combo, but again, not very streetable.

As for the camera car, it appears to be either Z06 corvette or a modified LS1 'vette.
