There really is no such thing as too much power, even for big trucks like the Chevrolet Silverado. This is the 2018 Yenko/SC Supercharged Silverado, created by Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) as a nod to the legendary Yenko Camaros and Corvettes.
Offered only with the lighter version of Chevy’s truck, the 2018 Standard Cab Short Bed model, the Yenco/SC Silverado comes with a flat black hood insert, cowl stripes and hood graphics as well as 22-inch gunmetal alloy wheels.
Under the bonnet lies a supercharged 6.8-liter V8 that produces really insane numbers: 800hp and 750lb-ft of torque to be exact. The modified LT-1 engine features a blueprinted aluminum block, forged steel crankshaft, forged steel beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported cylinder heads and SVE’s custom supercharger.
To harness all this power, SVE has also added their own progressive-rate front springs that are lower by 2 inches and a rear 5-inch lowering package upgrade. A beefy custom front swaybar with a 1.5-inch diameter is also fitted and a set of 16.1-inch vented rotors with six-piston Brembo calipers replace the factory front brakes.
The cabin can be dressed in leather as an option in six colors, plus a more classic combo consisting of partial leather with houndstooth cloth as well as matching stitching and a numbered plaque.
SVE will only build 25 of these super-trucks and will charge you $46,995 for the base version of the Yenko S/C Silverado, which also comes with a 3-year/36,000-mile limited warranty.
