260MPH COPO Camaro

July 30th, 2015

260MPH COPO CamaroNelson Racing Engines (NRE), in conjunction with Brink Racecraft, are building a fifth-generation COPO Camaro designed to tackle the Texas Mile. It boasts 2,500hp and is capable of hitting speeds in the neighborhood of 260 mph.

This bad bowtie is powered by a NRE 632-cubic-inch big block Chevy with twin 88-millimeter Mirror-Image turbochargers, 4-into-1 custom fabricated stainless steel turbo exhaust headers, an Alien intake manifold with Anteater snout, Tial wastegates and Tial Q blow-off valves, v-banded inlet and outlet pipes, a specially formed water to air intercooler, and a billet air breather system with integrated step downs. Built-in roof rails and a tailored rear wing help with downforce duties and dual rear parachutes and Aerospace brakes bring this Camaro back down after particularly monstrous runs. The turbocharger inlet pipes are hard-piped into the holes where the fog lamps once were and a Mark Williams solid-axle custom four-link rear differential and suspension setup help to put the ponies to the pavement.
