The Yenko 2017 Chevrolet Corvette Grand Sport has debuted earlier this month during Barrett-Jackson auction in Scottsdale. TheNew Jersey Company behind the car, Specialty Vehicle Engineering of Toms River, has since dropped its supercharged V-8 into the engine bay of the Chevrolet Camaro.Yenko 2017 Camaro, the resulting vehicle gladly matched the 800 horsepower and 750 pound-feet torque of its Corvette counterpart. However, it must be noted that the modern Yenkos are not considered as the muscle cars like Yenko Chevrolet of Canonsburg, Pennsylvania. The name was used by SVE under license from Marketing Capital Incorporated. The 2017 Yenko is based on the Camaro SS. Users have the option to choose from convertible and coupe body styles. The choice of 6-speed manual and 8-speed automatic transmission is also there. Brembo Brakes, Magnetic Ride Control suspension, and differential cooling systems are a few features of the vehicle.
The LT1 V8 has been upgraded to displace 6.8 liters instead of the 6.2 liters due to an additional stroker kit. The H-Beam rods, crankshaft, and pistons are also been replaced by the company. Visual tweaks embrace custom badging and decals as well as chunky 20×10-inch heritage-style wheels draped with Goodyear Eagle F1 tires.
