During the first half of January 2017, Classic Industries hosted the unveiling of the 800 horsepower, supercharged Yenko/SC Corvette built by Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE). Building upon the incredible reception of the Corvette, SVE has now launched their latest project, the 2017 Yenko/SC Supercharged Camaro.
New Jersey-based SVE has built more than 55,000 vehicles for GM over the past 25 years. The Yenko/SC Camaro, started as a Camaro SS – a vehicle already known for its performance potential, taken to the next level with a fully blueprinted 800 horsepower LT-1 engine.
With the bulk of the changes taking place under the hood, the chassis of the Yenko has not been modified. Some of the upgrades include Yenko-badged brake calipers, 20-inch five-spoke wheels with gunmetal finish, machined lip and sYc center caps, all wrapped in Goodyear Eagle F1 Supercar Tires – 285/35 R20 up front and 305/35 ZR20 on the back. The interior features special Yenko emblems, including carbon fiber inserts and unique visual details that make it a distinct vehicle.
Like the Corvette, power comes from a 416ci (6.8-liter) LT-1 engine, featuring an aluminum block that features a computer-balanced rotating assembly, including a race-quality forged 4340 steel crankshaft and H-beam rods with forged aluminum pistons. CNC-ported and polished LT-1 cylinder heads are topped off with a 2.9-liter twin-screw supercharger that is fed by an LT-4 fuel system and injectors, controlled by a custom-tuned PCM—a configuration good for 800 horsepower and 750 lb-ft of torque.
Exterior accents include the sYc hood stripe and Yenko/SC side stripe graphics, as well as strategically placed Yenko badges and Yenko Supercharged power badge with vehicle build number. Available in coupe or convertible and in a variety of color schemes, only 50 units will be produced.
The Yenko/SC Camaro will be offered to customers through GM dealers as a custom order. To learn more about SVE please visit: specialtyvehicleengineering.com.
