Yep, The 800HP Yenko Camaro SC Is An Unrestrained Monster

While some like to have their vehicles modified with bold new bodywork, big spoilers and custom wheels, others prefer to retain a car’s standard looks but tweak its internals. The Yenko Camaro SC provides the best of both worlds.

Unveiled at the end of January, the Yenko Camaro is based around a run-of-the-mill Camaro SS but has been comprehensively upgraded by Speciality Vehicle Engineering (SVE) who have been licensed to use the Yenko name.

Whereas a typical SS relies on a naturally-aspirated V8 engine, Yenko’s custom creation includes the installation of a supercharger, aluminium pistons, CNC ported and polished cylinder heads, a forged steel crankshaft and LT4 fuel injectors. This results in 800 hp and 750 lb-ft of torque, making the Yenko 345 hp more powerful than a standard Camaro SS and giving it a 93 hp edge over a Challenger SRT Hellcat.

A couple of days ago, Subaruwrxfan on YouTube had the chance to jumped behind the wheel of a black Yenko and is understandably flabbergasted by just how insanely fast it is. If you apply just a tiny bit too much throttle, the rear wheels start spinning like there’s no tomorrow, certainly making for an interesting driving experience.

    Mmmmmm….I wish I could get as excited about this video as he does about the car.

    I actually do believe that there is such a thing as ‘too much power’.

    • KSegg

      Couldn’t have said it better myself. Personally, I think the most a performance car needs is 500 BHP/TQ. Anything over that is overkill.

        I assume that you are talking about cars that are not planned for many visits to the local drag strip.

        Hopefully those are GY Eagle F1 “Supercar G2” tires, otherwise, yes too much HP.
