I'm gonna guess the new Camaro had street tires, not slicks. Your Brother probably pulled a low 1 second 60 foot time, the new one, I'd guess in the low 2's. The new Camaro would probably be lucky to run that same ET in the 1/8th mile, not a 1/4 mile.

Here's a Bugatti Veyron's times...

Quick summary of the test results: 0-60 in 2.7 seconds, 1/4 mile in 10.4 seconds @ 139.9 mph, 60-0 in 104 feet (better than Ferrari Enzo and the Ford GT, trails the much lighter Porsche Carrera GT by only 3 feet) and a curb weight of 4,530 pounds. The numbers were generated with the "idiot-proof" launch control working, it basically keeps the RPMs below 4,000 for the first 2 seconds, shows just how powerful the engine is as it doesn't even need full power for such an amazing 0-60 time. Check out the video for the full Bugatti Veyron experience.

I remember seeing a Youtube video of some 4 door Saturn with a big turbo, kid was whipping the crap outa anything he ran up against.
