The COPO Camaro is back, and it's as ready for the drag strip as ever

Chevrolet's hallowed factory-order dragster returns for the car's sixth generation, and it's just as crazy as the previous models.

Not every automaker offers drag racers straight from the factory, but Chevrolet does with the COPO Camaro.

The COPO Camaro features a solid rear axle for better drag traction, a supercharged 5.7-liter V8, adjustable suspension, a manual steering rack, a fuel cell, unassisted disc brakes and a racing-only wiring harness. Two other engines are on offer, as well.

Every car needs a "350 Supercharged" sticker slapped across the hood.

The COPO Camaro's matte-blue paint doesn't have any effect on aerodynamics. I didn't think that it would, I'm just running out of captions.

Business in the front, and a rager in the back.

You know your car is quick when a drag chute is standard equipment.

You know it's real quick when it needs bars to prevent the car from pulling a wheelie.

Even with the stickiest tires possible, the chute and wheelie bars are required.

Props to Chevrolet for keeping its wheel design nice and old-school.
