Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) released a new powerful 2023 Chevrolet Camaro car. It can give you up to 1,150 horsepower!
SVE is based in Toms River, New Jersey and they got the rights to use the famous Yenko brand from Yenko Chevrolet. This shop from the 1960s sold special custom-built muscle cars. Nowadays, SVE uses that same legendary name for their modified versions of many cars such as the Camaro and even SUVs like Tahoe and Suburban.
Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) is making its Yenko/SC Camaro car more powerful every year. The 2021 model produces 1,000 horsepower and the 2022 one will have 1,100hp. The 2023 model is even stronger, with Stage I producing 1,100hp and 910lb-ft of torque, and Stage II creating an amazing output of 1,150hp and 960 lb-ft!
This power comes from an extra-powerful 6.8-liter V8 engine which has been modified by General Motors’ 6.2-liter LT-1 small block engine. It has a stronger crank, rods and pistons made of steel and aluminum that work together smoothly, thanks to computer balancing, while the heads are those used in the Camaro ZL1’s LT-4 with extra strong head and main studs, combined with a bigger throttle body and special exhaust system.
The Yenko/SC is based on the Camaro SS, and it has lots of extra features that make it super cool. It’s got magnetic dampers to keep things stable, an electronic limited-slip differential for better performance, and a really powerful cooling system with two separate radiators, a transmission cooler and a rear differential cooler.
SVE has added a carbon fiber hood with an unfinished scoop, and a rear spoiler along with Yenko side stripes to the original Camaro SS 1LE. They also kept the Recaro front seats that came from the 1LE package.
SVE is offering 50 Yenko/SC Camaros in 2023, but only available as a coupe. You can choose from two upgrades (Stage I and Stage II) which are both offered with either an automatic or manual transmission. You have lots of colorful options and you can even pick your own striping!
A new and more powerful upgrade for the Camaro costs $85,995 to get. If you want it, you can get that upgrade by visiting a dealership of GM in either the United States or Canada.
