Limited edition, collaborative edition Camaros are all the rage right now - with unique styling, modern amenities, and huge horsepower under the hood of all the top prospects. But few can hold a candle to the modern marvel we have before us - a gorgeous, muscle-bound GM beauty produced in collaboration with the professional daredevils at Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE). With the spirit of Don Yenko running through its veins, this show-stopping Hyper Blue monster boasts 700 horsepower from its 427 V8/6-speed manual drivetrain, along with a host of options, luxurious amenities, and an uber-comfortable, race-inspired houdstooth interior. Better yet, this dark blue supercar has rarified history within its provenance, as it's officially #1 of only 50 total Yenko Camaros produced in 2016.
If you're not familiar with Don Yenko, then you probably don't know much about high-performance Chevrolets, in which case you may not possess the capacity to enjoy such a ride like this. Or maybe, letting your hair down in a muscle car with the Chevrolet equivalent of Carroll Shelby's name slapped on the side is exactly what you need to kick start your heart. Either way, this dialed-in Camaro instantly turns life up to 11. SVE and Chevrolet cosmically paired up to make just 50 of these amazing limited-edition specimens in 2016, built on the 2SS Camaro coupe baseline with a $49K second stage price tag for the out-of-this-world setup. Needing a loud exterior package is a must if you're going to pay proper homage to Yenko, so they slapped a slick Hyper Blue Metallic finish on this 2SS coupe, along with custom white Yenko/SC side stripes and hood graphics that mimic the old Yenko sYc designs of yore. The wild appearance package also brought a body-color painted carbon fiber hood with a requisite scoop, a menacing custom grille, blacked-out rear spoiler, a custom 'Yenko' and '427' badge package, and those killer 5-spoke wheels with sYc center caps and black Yenko calipers tucked in just behind them. The total Yenko/SC package really turns the look of the already-aggressive 2SS up another notch, and with only 4,023 actual miles, it still presents as factory-fresh.
Inside are more exclusive elements to the SVE Yenko edition, and you notice them the moment you open the door and see the special 'Yenko Camaro' door sill plates. The Jet Black interior with 'sYc' embroidery is an exclusive package only for this special edition masterpiece with the black leather seats with white houndstooth inserts perfectly complementing the dark blue exterior. The seats, leather steering wheel, leather shifter for the 6-speed manual, matching door panels, and ornate center console all received coordinated high-end white stitch work, and all the soft materials inside are either plush leather or smooth high-end fabric that still feel, look, and smell like a new car. An 'SS' badge at the lower portion of the 3-spoke, flat-bottomed wheel feels fat and grippy, and a bespoke 'Yenko' badge on the dash names the car's sequential production order (#1 out of 50). The comfortable driver's seat offers an unobstructed view of the recessed gauge panel full of digital units and the heads-up display projected onto the windshield, and the big touchscreen in the middle manages all the media, navigation, and back-up camera. The sculpted middle console is space age, as are the turbine-like vents for the A/C system, and as you might expect, this 2SS comes loaded with pretty much every single option and amenity you could get in 2016.
Under the hood, the snarling, hand-built 427CID all-aluminum V8 is ready to play. The naturally-aspirated, race-quality engine features aluminum heads and a custom performance PCM tune, so the power is immediate, fierce, and devours any asphalt that dare lie before it. Completely stock and unmodified since it left the SVE research center, it starts instantly and runs beautifully thanks to the wonders of a 10-rib dedicated belt-drive system, a large throttle body, and high-capacity fuel system. As you might expect, the Camaro's soundtrack is downright erotic, with a custom stainless-steel dual exhaust with dual-mode functions providing beautifully violent cackles and baritone revs befitting an engine of this caliber. State-of-the-art suspension components stick the car to the pavement even with all that added power, and one look underneath and you can see this Camaro has rarely been out in the wild. Power steering, Brembo 4-wheel disc brakes, and supercar Goodyear Eagle F1 performance tires on those exclusive 20-inch forged Gunmetal-finished wheels with machined lips and 'sYc' centercaps means this is a total package from top-to-bottom.
Complete with a large folder of provenance including the original window sticker, Yenko window sticker, buyer's order sheet, build sheet, Yenko build brochure, receipt for purchase, odometer statement, and original owner's manual
