    I can't stand that guys commentary. "The supercharged vehicle torpedoes from 0-60 in 5.7 seconds":eek1: WOW The cop is supposedly driving a Camaro? All the police Camaros I have seen were SS's. I am pretty sure they'll keep up with an M3:haha:

    That was rather impressive driving for a 15 year old though, you have to admit! He didn't even run into anything. Although, he must have been running in first gear the whole time to break it down. :thinking:

    Drive an E30 M3 sometime. You'll understand why he didn't crash - the little cars act like they're glued to the road. A very high end Porche is about the only production car with better handling.

    That's probably one of the funnest to drive cars ever built. :bow:

    The M3 would probably accelerate a bit faster, but the camaro would be faster after about a 1/4 mile. But then you go back to the handling....

    Cool video. Too bad that pleather wearing douche of a sheriff John Bunnell adds his over the top commentary along with sound effects that an 8 year old knows aren't right.

    As wrong as it is i kinda like when the kid faked the pursuing officer into spinning the Camaro into the ditch and then across the highway...

    "uhhh, he moved his shoulders like he was gonna ram me." :rolleyes:

    yeah, i thought that was wierd too. i would imagine that the camaro would be heavier than the bmw - he shoulda rammed back. (see rene, if he started it, i'd hit back. :D)

    plain and simple, the officer pussed out. Beamer runs away at 125+, a stock LE1 F-body will run 150 easy. and yes, an SS or LE1 Camaro will handle decent at 130+.

    Yeah, before I had my k5 I had a 1992 325is and then a 1995 325is and they were a blast to drive on country roads. That camaro is way faster than that m3, BMW's arent the fastest cars, they are very heavy, but they will out handle almost any other car.

    You have never run an E46 M3 or M roadster. "Decent" does not begin to describe those cars at speed....
