The 2020 Yenko Stage II Chevrolet Camaro built by Specialty Vehicle Engineering, Inc. undoubtedly represents one of the greatest performance values to ever hit the market. When the reborn Yenko was unveiled last summer with a four-digit horsepower rating and a sub-$70,000 price tag, it almost seemed too good to be true. Specialty Vehicle Engineering recently uploaded a video to their Facebook page that details just what their car can do when strapped to a dyno.
In a clip that can only be described as a cacophony of American thunder and hellfire, this Riverside blue 2020 Yenko Stage II Chevrolet Camaro makes every one of its 1,000 horsepower known. While we don’t get to take a look at the results from the pulls in the video, the hardware that Specialty Vehicle Engineering has stuck onto this Camaro can more than back up their claims.
The list of modifications begins with the donor Camaro SS’s 6.2L LT1 V-8, which now features an increased displacement of 6.8L. A Forged 4340 steel crankshaft and H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, CNC ported high-flow LT4 cylinder heads, ARP high strength head and main studs, an upgraded fuel system and injectors, stainless steel long tube headers with high-flow cats, and a larger throttle body are among go-fast parts fitted to the LT1 V8. Oh, and a high output supercharger. Other upgrades include the addition of a unique carbon fiber hood, as well as 20-inch Torq-Thrust-style five-spoke wheels shod in sticky Michelin Pilot Sport 4S rubber.
SVE has said that just 50 examples of the 2020 Yenko Stage II Chevrolet Camaro will be built, and they’re rolling out of the shop as we speak. There is no doubt that every one of these cars will be a future collectible, especially when you consider that there are just over 300 original Yenko Camaros.
