On the road show
The Custom Camaro with 1,000 HP
Let’s start by saying that we love tuning shops that take already beefed up muscle cars, and make them even crazier. What we have for you today might seem like your ordinary Chevrolet Camaro SS 1LE, with a 455-horsepower V8 and a whole slew of goodies. What you’re actually looking at is a new Camaro-based monster muscle car dubbed the 2018 YENKO/SC Stage II Camaro. New Jersey based tuning company Specialty Vehicle Engineering is the brains behind this project. Under the hood is an LT1 V8 engine that has a displacement of 6.8-liters, a supercharger, crankshaft, CNC ported heads, and forged aluminum pistons.
Other noteworthy upgrades include new rods and an upgraded fuel system with new injectors. As a result, this custom ride produces an insane 1,000 horsepower and 875 lb-ft of torque. Interested? Only 25 examples are being built. Each will have a fixed-head coupe equipped with an upgraded Tremec six-speed manual transmission. No price details have been released just yet. More to come on that.
