Speciality Vehicle Engineering is following up its monstrous C7 Yenko Corvette Grand Sport with a more familiar Yenko treatment. The performance house, which uses the “Yenko” name under license, has revealed the 2017 Yenko Chevrolet Camaro with a supercharged powerplant pushing 800 hp.
SVE has massaged the 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine to displace 416 cubic inches, or 6.8 liters, and added the fuel system and injectors from the 6.2-liter LT4 supercharged V8 engine. However, the supercharger attached to this Yenko Camaro is custom by SVE.
Forged aluminum pistons, CNC ported and polished LT1 cylinder heads and a custom tune helps the 2017 Yenko Camaro displace its 800 ponies with stride.
Of course, Yenko badging is found throughout the Camaro. Yenko details can be found with exterior badges, engine cover, headrests and floormats for starters. Even the keyfobs will be decked out with Yenko graphics.
SVE says only 50 of these Yenko Camaros will be built and we imagine they’ll sell out pretty quickly.
