Yenko Stage II Camaro makes 1000 horsepower

Antti Kautonen

Forget 707 and the Hellcat. How about 1000 horsepower and a Camaro?

Now available to be ordered at a Chevrolet dealer, the Yenko/SC Supercharged Stage II Camaro boasts a 6.8-liter LT1 teased all the way up to 1000 horsepower and 875 lb-ft of torque. Developed by Specialty Vehicle Engineering, the aluminum block engine has a forged 4340 steel crankshaft and H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons and ported LT4 heads, plus a supercharger and a stainless steel header and exhaust setup.

The Yenko Stage II Camaro makes easy work of beating a standard 6.2-liter Camaro SS, which "only" has 455 hp and 455 lb-ft from factory. There's also Magnetic Ride Control, an electronic LSD, Brembo brakes and a suspension upgraded to withstand all that power. All in all, it's an impressive package that should actually be well done given that the engine, supercharger and non-powertrain components are all backed by a three-year/36,000 mile warranty. If you want one, it's best to act fast as only 25 will be made. Then again, pricing has yet to be announced.

Oh, but we do know it sounds like this. Enjoy.
