Though not as well-known, Yenko was to Camaro what Shelby is to the Mustang. That is to say, if you wanted the best version of the Camaro pony car, you got a Yenko. Unfortunately, the Yenko name went the way of the dodo after 1982, when the founder’s son sold the business. Now, it’s getting a proper rebirth courtesy of Specialty Vehicle Engineering and their 2019 Yenko/SC Stage II Camaro.
The new Camaros don’t really need any alterations to be impressive motor vehicles, but we’re certainly not complaining that SVE did it anyway. Especially because this beefed-up version now has 1,000 horsepower under the hood, courtesy of its supercharged, custom-built 416 C.I.D. LT-1 engine. And, in case you want one but you’re worried people might think it’s just another run-of-the-mill Camaro, it also boasts a bevy of Yenko and 1,000HP badges on everything from the car’s body to the engine and even the brake calipers. It’s also customizable in a number of different color combinations and comes with upgraded Michelin PS4S tires. Only 25 will ever be made with a starting price of a whopping $111,990.
