If the standard 650-hp Chevrolet Camaro ZL1 isn’t enough for you, tuning company Specialty Vehicle Engineering (previously known as SLP) has a solution in the form of the 2019 Yenko/SC Camaro. Based on the 2019 Camaro SS 1LE, the Yenko is available in two states of tune, with either 835 or 1000 horsepower. The best part? It will be sold through Chevy dealerships in the United States and Canada.
While the standard SS uses a naturally aspirated 6.2-liter V-8 with 455 horsepower, Specialty Vehicle Engineering swaps in the supercharged 6.2-liter LT1 V-8 from the ZL1 and then bores it out to 6.8 liters. The 835-hp Stage I model gets a forged-steel crankshaft, forged-aluminum pistons, an upgraded fuel system and injectors, and CNC-ported cylinder heads. The 1000-hp Stage II version adds a larger supercharger with more boost, a bigger throttle body, stainless-steel headers, a dual-mode stainless-steel exhaust, and different tuning. Both models have a six-speed manual transmission as standard, but an automatic is optional.
