As Chevrolet is set to debut a new nose and color for the 2019 Camaro at SEMA, Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) wasted no time announcing insanely its own high-performance packages for the updated car. Chief among them is the 2019 Yenko/SC Stage II Camaro that debuts with 1000 horsepower, a new face, and lots of badges.
There are actually two SVE options, however, both of which will each be restricted to 25 units. The Stage I has a mere 835 horsepower while the Stage II gets the full 1000 hp. This formula is not new for SVE, as the 2018 model was offered with 825 or 1000 horsepower.
Excluding the carbon fiber hood with the scoop and the rear deck spoiler, there is no mention of further weight reduction or upgrades to the aero, brakes, cooling, or suspension. The stock 1LE does come with magnetic ride control, an electronic limited-slip differential, a performance suspension, and bolstered cooling, however.
The new Camaros don’t really need any alterations to be impressive motor vehicles, but we’re certainly not complaining that SVE did it anyway. Especially because this beefed-up version now has 1,000 horsepower under the hood, courtesy of its supercharged, custom-built 416 C.I.D. LT-1 engine. And, in case you want one but you’re worried people might think it’s just another run-of-the-mill Camaro, it also boasts a bevy of Yenko and 1,000HP badges on everything from the car’s body to the engine and even the brake calipers.
Although this is technically not a factory car, the packages are ordered through General Motors dealers and come with 3-year/36,000-mile warranties. The 835-horsepower package is priced at $46,995 while the 1000-horsepower model is $66,995 extra. Let us repeat it once again, those prices are on top of the new 2019 Camaro SS 1LE. If you are looking to buy the price is starting at $44,995. Do the math and you could be shelling out $113,990 for a Camaro.
