The first thing that struck me about the car in the above picture was its sleek, stylish appearance. But, there is more about the car than what meets the eye.

This is the picture of the 580CI 1500HP 1967 Camaro- the winner of the annual shoot out for the fastest car in America for the year 2007, organized by the Hot Rod magazine. This car can really set the street on fire, covering the quarter mile in about 7 seconds (7.64 seconds, to be exact). A great news for all the car-lovers out there — this super fast street machine is currently on sale!

An interesting feature of these annual shoot outs arranged by Hot Rod magazine is that, there are no trailer queens, and the cars have to drive from track to track. This car managed to cover more than 1000 miles between the tracks, and chalked up really impressive timings every time it ran. Backed by the power of 1500 horses at the rear wheels, this car has very little unnecessary or fancy accessories. The car looks sober and business-like, and is about as quick as it can probably get. Indeed, all those with a penchant for top-quality cars and a passion for speed are sure to fall in love with this speed demon!
