First thing to know about the video below is we don't actually get to see any track times nor has GM disclosed anything official yet. But if you listen in closely after the last run you'll hear the gentleman near the camera say what sounds like "8.99" while looking at the time slip. So a 8.99 quarter mile with a factory built Camaro; that is impressive! But remember that the COPO's are meant for track use only and are not street legal. One of the best features of the video is the multiple camera angles you'll get to see; Which include views from inside the engine bay, under the car, the drivers area, along with the front and rear of the car.
