The Yenko name conjures up images of classic muscle cars that were known for being absolute brutes on the street and drag strip. Classic Industries is now a part of the Yenko heritage with the sister company GMCI that handles the licensing for all the Yenko trademarks. To show off what the Yenko brand is all about Classic Industries had a new sixth-generation Yenko Camaro in their booth that makes over 1,000 tire-shredding horsepower.
Classic Industries sells a variety of Yenko branded products that enthusiasts can use as part of a restoration or building a clone of their favorite Yenko machine. Dave Hamburger explains how you can get a new Yenko Camaro.
“The licensing of the Yenko trademarks including the SYC logo along with the 27 other associated trademarks are owned by GMCI which is a sister company of Classic Industries OER. We oversee the production under license and we’ve done it for the last six years. It’s a wonderful program because it’s only available through Chevrolet dealers. You go to the dealer, purchase a Camaro with the package, GM drop ships the car to Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) so it can be built, and then we send it back to the dealer for final delivery.”
The 2020 Stage II Yenko you can purchase comes with a 416 cubic-inch LT1 packed with goodies and topped off with a blower. Besides getting a car that makes 1,000 horsepower with a warranty there’s also plenty of interior and exterior upgrades that come with this new-age muscle car. The car comes with a carbon fiber hood, custom stripes, special badges, and interior upgrades as well.
