That's not even really a street car. I read about it in some magazine. It's impressive, but I'd be more impressed if it would run in the Silver State Classic where it's 100 mile mostly straight stretch.

I read one year where there was a Camaro entered into the competition that had an averaged speed of 227. IIRC, it was a 427 with 800 hp. It's been 15 years since I read that article though.
