Camaro ZL1 joins 11-second club

Chevrolet says its new Camaro ZL1 is now officially a member in the 11-second club -- at least when it comes to drag racing the quarter mile. The team ran a stock Camaro ZL1 with an automatic transmission over the quarter mile in 11.93 seconds, hitting 116 m.p.h. A Camaro ZL1 with stick shift ran the same distance in 11.96 seconds.

Just think if it was 700lbs. lighter like it should be! We would be talking 10 second club! Of course this could be said of the Shelby to.

Agreed!! Although I don't see how you would lose 700lbs.... At least it's still lighter than the Challenger, even though that's not saying much.

Carbon fiber doors, hood, trunk would be a good start. Titanium drive shaft, exhaust would get you a few more.
