Customers can order a Yenko/SC Camaro from their Chevy dealer.
If you’re looking for the last word in tire-shredding, you may be interested in this Camaro. Specialty Vehicle Engineering, the same company behind a Canyon-based GMC Syclone, is at it again with this 2020 Yenko/SC Camaro. It costs $69,000, according to a Road & Track report, and before you think “that’s a bit pricey”, here’s the kicker: It has 1,000 horsepower.
That makes the 2020 Yenko/SC Camaro just $69 per horsepower. Frankly, it’s a serious value buy against the likes of the Dodge Challenger SRT Hellcat Redeye if you’re looking for some major firepower. There is one major down side, however. SVE says its limiting production to just 50 cars. If you do want one, it’s fairly easy to achieve if you pull the trigger quickly. You can order the 2020 Yenko/SC Camaro at any Chevrolet dealer in the U.S.
Delivering the goods
To create the Yenko, SVE took the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 out of a Camaro SS and upped the displacement to 6.8 liters. On top of that, they also fitted a new forged steel crankshaft, high-flow cylinder heads and forged connecting rods. The upgrades continue with a larger throttle body, an upgraded fuel injection system, an engine tune and a high-performance supercharger.
Thanks to all those upgrades, the large capacity V8 puts out 1,000 horsepower and 875 lb-ft of torque. Even better, the car comes mated to a six-speed manual transmission. Since the 2020 Yenko/SC Camaro is based on the SS, you also get Chevy’s Magnetic Ride Control as well as an electronic limited-slip rear differential.
On the outside, a painted carbon fiber hood with a massive scoop and distinct badge set the 2020 Yenko/SC Camaro apart. There’s also the decals, Yenko-branded brake calipers and bespoke 20-inch alloy wheels. Those wheels are wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S tires.
