835 hp Camaro goes to auction

2019-Yenko-Camaro-Auction-002-720x404New Jersey-based tuner Specialty Vehicle Engineering has generated quite a bit of press for itself with its modern-day Yenko Camaro tribute vehicles. While not nearly as desirable as an actual Yenko, these cars are still very desirable, packing huge amounts of power and featuring trademark Yenko branding.

One of these rare modern-day Yenkos will soon head to auction at Mecum’s Indianapolis 2020 sale. The car is a 2019 model-year example with the Stage 1 performance package and is packing a supercharged LT1 V8 engine good for a whopping 835 horsepower. Helping to push the LT1 to those heights is a large blower, forged steel crankshaft, forged pistons, CNC ported LT4 cylinder heads, larger injectors and a laundry list of other modifications. Somewhat unexpectedly, this car was delivered with the optional 10-speed automatic transmission that is available with the Camaro SS, rather than the standard six-speed manual.


Mecum’s Indianapolis auction is scheduled for the week of June 23rd to 28th, but with the coronavirus pandemic canceling many major gatherings and events, it’s not clear if the auction will go forth. In the meantime, check out the lot listing for this modern-day muscle car at this link.
