While not as famous as Shelby is to Ford, Chevrolet had their own specialty tuners in the Yenko brand during the 1960s. Now, more than 50 years later, the name is being revived in exceptional fashion thanks to the 2019 Stage II YENKO SC Corvette.
Built by Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE, for short), this modernized tribute is a fitting one, as this stunning sports car is an abundantly impressive specimen – thanks to its supercharged custom-built 6.8-liter LT-1 engine that’s capable of a whopping 1,000 horsepower. The power plant is also mated to a cast aluminum quad exhaust and a heavy-duty transmission. To pair with the performance, the exterior also features some noteworthy options, including custom striping, matching brake calipers, black powder coated wheels, and even a painted supercharger. Only 25 of these Corvettes will ever be built and they’re available through Chevrolet dealerships starting at $68,995 over the base price of a Corvette Grand Sport.
