800-hp ‘Yenko’ 2017 Chevrolet Camaro revealed

Remember the Yenko 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport that debuted during the Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale, Arizona earlier this month?

The company behind the car, Specialty Vehicle Engineering of Toms River, New Jersey, has since dropped its supercharged V-8 into the engine bay of the Chevrolet Camaro.

The result is the Yenko 2017 Camaro, which we’re glad to report matches the 800 horsepower and 750 pound-feet of torque of its Corvette cousin.

Note, the modern Yenkos aren’t related to the famous muscle cars from Yenko Chevrolet of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. SVE uses the name under license from owner General Marketing Capital Incorporated.

I wouldn't want to own it, but I would like to borrow it for a day or two.
