The belly of the beast is a 416-ci powerplant, a 6.8-liter mill based on the naturally-aspirated LT1. The aluminum block is complemented by a race-quality forged 4340 steel crankshaft, H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, CNC-ported LT4 cylinder heads, upgraded injectors, ARP high-strength head and main studs, a 10-rib belt drive system, a larger throttle body, as well as high- and low-pressure fuel systems. Designed for 93-octane pump gas rather than E85 or full-on race fuel, this lump further boasts custom ECU calibration and a stainless dual-mode exhaust system.
Based on the SS 1LE, the 2023 model year SVE Yenko/SC Camaro is available with either a manual transmission for the more powerful variant or a torque-converter automatic for the less powerful variant. 100 examples will be offered in total, namely 50 manuals and 50 automatics.
A body-color hood constructed from carbon fiber also needs to be highlighted, together with multi-spoke forged wheels, 285/30ZR20 front and 305/30ZR20 rear performance tires from Nitto, a set of Yenko-branded calipers in red, and no fewer than 10 stripe options. Each car brings the point home with plenty of Yenko, Yenko/SC, and sYc motifs.The 2023 model year SVE Yenko/SC Camaro is available exclusively as a coupe, given that the fixed-head body style is a little stiffer than the convertible. Specialty Vehicle Engineering hasn’t mentioned the pricing for these bad boys, but chances are that both of them exceed $100,000.
