Default Electric Chevy Camaro tears down the 1/4-mile in 10.08 seconds



Back in April, Ron Adamwicz'* electric 1981 Chevrolet Camaro ripped down the quarter-mile track at Palm Beach International Raceway in just 11.253 seconds. In addition to its record-setting quarter-mile run, the electrified Camaro, dubbed "Warp Factor II," set a world record with a 6.8-second eighth-mile run at 150.4 kilometres per hour. And get this: those records were set with just one of the Camaro'* two electric motors operational.

On August 6, with both electric motors functioning correctly, the Team Haiyin EV Racing Chevy Camaro tore down the strip at Lebanon Valley Dragway in 10.08 seconds, hitting a top speed of 204 km/h. That time puts the electric Camaro within spitting distance of the Black Current, the converted Volkswagen Beetle that holds the world record for "street bodied" electric vehicles.

Electric cars have crazy torque. Perhaps they could stick a playing car in the spokes of the rims. You know, to give it that sound.
