On July 27, 2014, Muncie Dragway in Albany, Ind. held a record-breaking quarter-mile run, as one F-body Chevrolet Camaro became the the quickest six-speed manual General Motors car in the world when it managed a to scoot through the quarter-mile in 8.63 seconds at 158 mph. The previous record holder managed the run in 8.69 seconds, according to the Camaro’s owner.
Filmed by 1320video, the below footage provides a little background on the car. Still sporting its power windows, the owner tells the YouTube channel that the Camaro makes approximately 1,100-horsepower from a boosted 6.0-liter V8 truck engine. An RPM T56 six-speed manual transmission puts all that power to the ground.
Watch below as the Camaro takes on (and smokes) the world’s quickest ZR1 Corvette courtesy of a hearty dose of clutch dump and some quick shifting.
