This, sports fans, is a stock standard Chevrolet COPO Camaro, blasting down the quarter-mile in a seriously impressive 8.88 seconds.

The Bowtie Boys don't say whether or not this limited-edition rocketship is street-legal but they do say that it has a 5.3-litre V8 with a four-litre Whipple supercharger.

The COPO Camaro (sounds like a new Latin-American dance!) is also available with a 2.9-litre supercharger, or a thumping great seven-litre naturally-aspirated lump, depending on what calls a drag-racing you compete in.

Only 69 will be made this year, with prices starting from $89 000 (R736 000).
