2017 Yenko/SC Supercharged Camaro

Not Your Father’s Yenko

Classic Industries earlier in January hosted the unveiling of the 800 horsepower, supercharged Yenko/SC Corvette built by Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE). Building upon that introduciton, SVE has now launched its 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 latest build, the Yenko/SC Camaro, started as a Camaro SS and was 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 fully blueprinted 416 C.I.D., 6.8-liter LT-1 engine. It features an aluminum block and 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.
