Haha...the hilarity on this thread is ridiculous!!

But anyway...if I could pick a car that did nothing but go fast, it would have to be a 2013 Chevy COPO Camaro. Basically, you're looking at a car that does 9 seconds flat in the 1/4, with a supercharged 427 ci LS7 motor.

Speaking of supercharged, I know how it works, and if I had to pick a method to tune my car to, it would depend on whether or not I was driving in a straight line, or on a track with corners. If was I was in a straight line, supercharged, no problem. If on a track, I'd go turbo coupled with AWD (a WRX STi is a good choice).

However, the second variable you have to consider is, what kind of driver are you? If you go into the corner quicker, you want a supercharger. If you want a faster exit speed, turbo is quicker. Sure, while a turbo can put out a tad more power, it still takes more time to spool up, while supercharging gives a more linear power curve.

By the way, a 1400 HP Saturn Redline is definitely something I would love to see go down the track!

Lmao let me stop you right there with all the "If's". Copo Camaro yeah sure lets all go buy a brand new car that you can't even get a title to! turbo's set up right do not have lag on a gas engine, if they do thats what a small shot of nitrous is used for; superchagers are out dated end of story. Are they cool yeah, do they make power, yeah are they efficient as a turbo no.

Not to mention I could put a 750hp crate engine in a plain camaro and still be under the cost of a COPO.
