The Camaro features a 94mm single turbo (BIG) at only 13 psi so it could be cranked up way further than this. It is estimated that 13 psi is good for the ~900 horsepower range. It also has a built T56 manual transmission to handle the torque. So, yep, it's a beast.
To no surprise, the SLS gets walked and walked quickly. The race it at elevation with DA estimated at 3000 feet. So, the naturally aspirated SLS is at a further disadvantage versus the turbocharged Camaro. One thing the SLS shows thow is at lower speeds once it is time to shift the dual clutch transmission does a nice job of mitigating the power advantage. Once at higher speeds though and spending more time in gear with less frequent shifts, it's quickly over and the power disparity shows.
Sure, this may be a pointless race to some. It does however show the difference between a fast factory car and just how fast an aftermarket built car can be these days. It would be interesting to see the Camaro at full strength, whatever horsepower level that may be.
