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 127 mph. 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.
The time to beat stands at 9.51 seconds. That's simply amazing considering the 1,001-horsepower Bugatii Veyron roars down the quarter-mile in the mid-10s. Hit the jump to watch the electric Camaro rip down the tarmac.
