SVE’s limited-edition 2021 Chevy Camaro Yenko S/C rocks 1,050 hp

  • Whatsapp

Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) once again proved that aftermarket tuners are at the forefront of the horsepower war by announcing a 1,050 horsepower Chevrolet Camaro. It’s called Yenko / SC and is limited to 50 rural units.

Each Yenko / SC starts as a 1SS or a 2SS model equipped with a six-speed manual transmission and the optional 1LE package. It then gets a 6.8-liter, LT-1-based V8 topped with a giant supercharger to develop 1,050 horsepower and 900 pound-feet of torque, 50 and 25 increases over SVE’s 2020 Yenko Camaro. SVE reliably explained that achieving this output requires building the eight-cylinder with a forged steel crankshaft, forged aluminum pistons and high-flow LT4 cylinder heads, among other things. It also improves the fuel delivery system, fits a larger throttle body and installs a new exhaust line with long tube headers and high-flow catalytic converters.

SVE then turns its attention to the cooling system, which includes an engine oil cooler, twin outboard radiators, a transmission cooler and a rear differential cooler. It then installs a redesigned suspension with specific bushings, springs and anti-roll bars, although the factory-fitted Magnetic Ride Control technology remains unaffected.

Visually, it is almost impossible to confuse the Yenko / SC with a normal production Camaro. Offered only as a coupĂ©, it bears a carbon fiber bonnet with the center section left unpainted, a range of emblems and emblems, plus five-spoke alloy wheels. Inside, a badge with the car’s serial number reminds occupants that they are not driving a regular Camaro. Yenko badges appear on the sill moldings and also on the floor mats.

  Why Chevy is launching another employee pricing campaign

SVE will make 50 copies of the Yenko / SC for the 2021 model year, and these will be available from Chevrolet dealers in the United States and Canada on a first-come, first-served basis, although the company clarified that the V8 is not. emission compliant in California. It’s a factory authorized conversion, so the Camaro will not void the warranty. Better yet, the engine and supercharger are protected by a three-year, 60,000-mile warranty.

Prices start at $ 69,995, but that figure doesn’t include the donor car. Chevrolet charges $ 37,500 for a Camaro 1SS, $ 995 for the destination, and $ 7,000 for the 1LE package, so the total cost of the Yenko / SC is $ 115,490. Selecting the 2SS trim level will boost that figure to $ 120,490, and that’s before options are counted.

If the Camaro isn’t practical enough for you, SVE is also building a modern GMC Syclone based on the Canyon pickup. It includes a 5.3-liter V8 with a supercharged up to 750 horsepower and 600 pound-feet of torque. If that’s still not enough, the tuner also stuffs the Camaro’s 6.8-liter V8 into the Silverado, although output is limited to 800 horses.
