The North American based automaker Chevrolet has previously announced that the COPO Camaro can do a quarter mile in less than 9 seconds, but there were more people who set foot on the Moon than people who believed that so rumors have recently come to an end when the muscle car has been put on the track to do the ¼ mile against the clock. The Chevrolet COPO Camaro managed to do the quarter mile in an impressive 8.88 seconds.
