    Drag Race: Magnuson Supercharged 2016 Camaro SS Goes 10.10

    Written by Patrick Rall

    A new 6th gen Chevrolet Camaro SS fitted with a Magnuson supercharger lays down a smokin" fast quarter mile time.In standard form, this 2016 Camaro SS would have offered 455 horsepower from the new LT1, which would have allowed it to slip down the drag strip in the mid-to-low 12-second range.However, this particular LT1 V8 2016 Camaro SS has been fitted with a Magnuson supercharger and thanks to that, it packs far more than 455hp. Unfortunately, we don"t have any information on what other modifications this Camaro has been fitted with to perform like this. However, we would guess that there are at least a few other aftermarket components such as fuel system upgrades to make better use of the forced induction. Based on the sound of this Camaro SS while is rockets down the track, it clearly has some exhaust upgrades as well.To get out of the hole as hard it does in this video, we would guess that some stickier-than-stock drag radial tires. The car doesn"t seem to be any traction problems when it roars away from the starting line.[Editor’s Note: Auto Club is my home track. Street tires don’t hook worth a damn here. This Camaro was on radials.]The quick, smooth shifts suggest that it is fitted with an automatic transmission, which works with the blown V8 to get this Camaro very near the 9-second range. At the big end, the Magnuson-blown Camaro SS lays down an elapsed time of 10.10 at a trap speed of 136.44 miles per hour.In short, the Magnuson supercharger and supporting modifications allowed this Camaro SS to drop roughly two seconds from its quarter mile time.
