Now You Can Get A 1,000-HP Camaro Convertible

Muscle Car / Comments

That's a whole lot of wind in your hair.

Dig the latest Camaro? Chevy will sell you one in a range of specifications, from the base 2.0-liter turbo four all the way up to the ZL1 with its 6.2-liter supercharged V8. But if even the latter isn't potent enough for you, Specialty Vehicle Engineering can do you one better, and then some.

The New Jersey-based outfit made a name for itself with its Yenko Camaro, which in its latest iteration produces a massive 1,000 horsepower. And as if that's not enticing enough already, SVE is now offering the Yenko as a convertible.

Like the existing coupe, the 2020 Yenko/SC Stage I Camaro convertible packs a massive 6.8-liter supercharged version of GM's LT1 V8 engine, tuned deliver that headline-grabbing 1,000 hp. It can be ordered up based on the Camaro 1SS or 2SS with the ten-speed automatic transmission, and comes with everything that GM Performance and Specialty Vehicle Engineering could fit into it.

The long list of features include the Magnetic Ride Control suspension, Brembo six-piston front and four-piston rear brakes, a heavy-duty cooling system, limited slip differential, dual-mode exhaust, 1LE-pack front and rear spoilers... the works.

SVE has also fitted the Yenko Camaro with a unique carbon-fiber hood, and offers it in a variety of livery combinations, with racing stripes in no fewer than nine colors so you can really "make it yours."

We're almost afraid to ask how much the tuner charges for all these upgrades, or for the essential prospect of a thousand-horsepower, drop-top pony car. But if you have the means and the inclination, you'd better act fast, because Specialty Vehicle Engineering will only make 25 of them this year - coupe or convertible. And you'd better put some extra cash aside for the tires.
