You'd be surprised how much horsepower most people "don't" have. My Buick GS455 convertible weighs 4250 lbs. I run typically in the 11.90's, with a best of 11.86 at 112 mph. On a chassis dyno, I made 376hp and 496 lb/ft of torque. All that through a th400 trans.

So a Camaro has about a 500 lb. or so advantage on all that.
