There’s still no mistaking it. The Dodge Demon remains the quickest production car that’s so far been built, but it’s also clear to see that it doesn’t take much for a sixth-generation Chevy Camaro ZL1 to catch up to one.
The owner of this blazing quick Camaro ZL1 explains in the video that the engine features upgrades to the headers, camshaft, E85 fuel system, methanol injection, and more. However, the supercharger, or blower, remains bone stock. All of the upgrades took about three months to complete, and the owner claims the dyno numbers to be 825 hp and 848 lb-ft of torque out of the ZL1’s 6.2L LT4 V8 engine. Its odometer is just shy of 1,500 miles.
According to the owner, who also operates a tuning shop called Killer Performance in Kansas City, this sixth-gen Camaro ZL1 is currently the fastest one out there with a stock blower. Per the video, shot at the Street Car Takeover happening at Maryland International Raceway, the fastest time for this super Chevy came in at 9.5 seconds at 142 miles per hour. The owner believes that with a heat exchanger upgrade, the record-setting Camaro ZL1 can make it into the 9.3 or 9.2-second range.
The Camaro ZL1 looks fully prepped for drag racing, with slicks in the back, skinnies in the front, roll cage on the inside, and a drag chute ready to deploy. The 10-speed equipped ZL1 launches like a gun off the line, even popping a wheelie – just like the 840 horsepower Dodge Demon. Also like the Demon, this Camaro runs 9’s, but even faster than the Mopar’s 9.8 second record.
