Specialty Vehicle Engineering, Inc. (formerly SLP) has announced the availability of its 2020 Yenko/SC Stage II Chevrolet Camaro. Under the hood is a 6.8L (416 cubic-inch) LT1-based V8 engine that delivers 1,000 horsepower. That is not a typo.
The custom machine itself is based off the Camaro 1SS or 2SS with the 1LE package, for what Specialty Vehicle Engineering describes will “properly balance the awesome power of the 6.8L supercharged engine.” in other words, that electronic limited slip differential, FE3 suspension, and various ZL1 pull-down parts will be getting the workout of their lives.
This vehicle is bound to be a collector’s item for muscle car enthusiasts, as only 50 of them will be made. Each will be individually numbered, and will include a manufacturer’s certificate of origin.
The 2020 Yenko Stage II Chevrolet Camaro will also feature paint and graphics options beyond what’s offered from the factory. Unique “Yenko SC” decals and stripe work will compliment the stock colors, while a massive hood cowl will help further identify the 2020 Yenko Camaro from more ordinary models. Unique five-spoke wheels finish off the look.
The 6.8L supercharged V8 under the hood of the 2020 Yenko Stage II Camaro is features a forged 4340 steel crankshaft and H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, CNC ported high-flow LT4 cylinder heads, upgraded fuel system and injectors, with ARP high strength head and main studs, high-output custom supercharger in black (custom colors optional), 10 rib dedicated belt drive system, 10% larger throttle body, custom stainless steel long tube headers with high-flow cats, and a higher capacity high and low pressure fuel system. Capping it all off are a pair of “1000HP Supercharged” badges on the supercharger. Connecting all of that power to the pavement are Michelin PS4S performance tires, measuring 295/30 ZR20 up front, and 305/30 ZR20 in the rear.
Even with all of the upgrade, Specialty Vehicle Engineering is throwing in a 3 year/36,000 mile engine and super charger assembly limited warranty, as well as a 3 year/36,000 mile non-powertrain component limited warranty.
Save for the front fascia update, the 2020 Yenko Chevrolet Camaro Stage II package appears to be the same as the 2019 model year. So while pricing hasn’t been formally announced, last year’s Yenko Stage II package commanded a price of $66,995, plus the Camaro. That also means that for you Californians, this hyper Camaro is limited to track use only, and due to emissions regulations, is not street legal.
