2020 Yenko Camaro Dialed Up To 1,000 Horsepower

Similar to the Yenko/SC from 2018, the 2020 model year is a no-nonsense pony turned muscle car. A sub-$70,000 package that levels up to 1,000 horsepower, the Yenko utilizes the LT1 engine from the Camaro SS bored out to 6.8 liters.

The increased displacement is complemented by an upgraded fuel system, thumpin’ big supercharger, stainless steel headers, high-flow catalytic converters, ARP head studs, CNC-ported heads, forged pistons, upgraded rods, and a more aggressive crankshaft. Care to guess what else SVE has to offer?

Specialty Vehicle Engineering starts off with the Camaro SS 1LE as the donor vehicle, and to this effect, the wheels now measure 20 inches and they’re wrapped in Michelin Pilot Sport 4S performance tires. A carbon-fiber hood, new springs, bushings, and a two-mode exhaust system are a few other highlights worth mentioning. The visual drama is complemented by red paint on the brake calipers and lots of optional graphics for the hood and sides.

Only 50 examples of the breed have been allocated for the 2020 model year, and SVE allows prospective customers to order the car from Chevrolet dealerships throughout the United States. This convenience can’t shake off the existence of the 1968 continuation series, which are much more collectible than the 2020 heir-apparent. In the long run, everyone knows the old-school model is a blue-chip investment that offers a more authentic experience.

It should be mentioned the $69,000 starting price doesn’t include the price of the Camaro SS 1LE, which costs close to $45,000 excluding destination charge. Another word of warning? The fine print on the SVE website reads “the Yenko/SC 1,000 horsepower is not emission legal in California.”

If you were wondering, the Camaro ZL1 with the 1LE Track Performance package is almost $74,000 excluding destination charge. With that in mind, would you pony up the green dollar bills for the Yenko or would you get the bone-stock model in its most pumped-up configuration?

Better still, have you heard the GMC Syclone is back for 2019 thanks to Specialty Vehicle Engineering?
