Gen-6 2016 Camaro SS that tops 200 mph!

Humans are obsessed with round numbers, but even more so with certain numbers. They also give a lot more weight to what we like to call milestone numbers. Why is a car that makes 1,000 hp cooler than one that makes 995? Or a car that runs 10.99 in the quarter given more respect than one that runs 11.01? Because humans love big, sexy round numbers. Another milestone number is 200 … as in 200 mph. It used to be that this magic number was attainable by only a small handful of rides, but as modern cars have gotten more powerful and aerodynamically sleeker the club has become a bit less exclusive, but it’s still a pretty small group of cars that can pull this off.
