2019 Yenko SC Stage II Corvette Announced With 1000 HP

The Chevrolet Corvette ZR1 is a pretty impressive beat as it features a supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine that develops 755 hp (563 kW / 765 PS) and 715 lb-ft (968 Nm) of torque. While those are some good numbers, they pale in comparison to the figures generated by the 2019 Yenko/SC Stage II Corvette.

Described as “all-new” and “outrageously fast,” the model is based on the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport and features a custom-built 6.8-liter LT1 V8 engine that produces 1,000 hp (745 kW / 1,013 PS). In order to hit that impressive number, the engine has been bored out and equipped with a forged steel crankshaft as well as forged aluminum pistons.

Specialty Vehicle Engineering also adds CNC ported cylinder heads, a larger throttle body, an upgraded fuel injection system and a high-performance exhaust. The model has also been outfitted with a massive supercharger and a custom tune.

Styling changes are fairly limited as the car is decked out in side stripes and Yenko graphics. The model also has “1000HP badging,” special wheel caps and four diffuser fins which are painted in Carbon Flash Metallic.

 

 

The modest changes continue in the cabin as drivers are greeted by individually numbered billet aluminum door sill plates with “Yenko 1000HP Supercharged” badging. Elsewhere, the company installs sYc logos on the headrests and door panels as well as a Yenko badge on the steering wheel. Other changes include an individually numbered plaque on the center console and Yenko embroidered floor mats.

The car will be available with either a manual or automatic transmission. When equipped with the latter, the car will be outfitted with a “heavy-duty transmission upgrade” featuring a 12 month / 12,000 mile (19,312 km) warranty.

Production will be limited to 25 units and the Yenko/SC Stage II Corvette will be offered as a coupe and convertible. However, it will be a pretty costly upgrade as Roadshow reports the package starts at $68,995.

    I always loved the ’68 Yenko SC Camaro.

  • Welp this is even crazier than Callaway or Lingenfelter. And has more style than Henessey upgrades.

    I much prefer what they’ve done with the rear bumper than the stock version.
