New Jersey-based tuning company Specialty Vehicle Engineering wants to rid your mind of the number 707 and the Challenger Hellcat and replace it with 1,000 and the Camaro for that’s how many horses it has managed to squeeze out of the Chevy!
The Yenko Stage II Camaro features a massive 6.8-litre LT1 mated to a Tremec six-speed manual that SVE has worked its magic on to get to the staggering output figure which is 350 more horses than the monstrous Camaro ZL1! The supercharged LT1 has an aluminium block, forged 4340 steel crankshaft and H-beam rods, forged aluminium pistons and ported LT4 heads, plus stainless steel headers and it makes 1,186Nm of torque. With all of that power, it’s good to know that this wild Camaro has Magnetic Ride Control, an electronic LSD, Brembo brakes and an upgraded suspension.
The exterior gets a body colour-painted carbon-fibre bonnet, lots of stripes and ‘1,000HP’ badges along with Yenko crests. Inside, it has Recaro performance seats and more Yenko branding.
Just 25 of these bad boys are to be built so if you want a Hellcat slayer, act fast!
