Specialty Vehicle Engineering has built some seriously cool vehicles, including a 750 horsepower all-wheel-drive (AWD) Syclone truck. The companies latest offering is a 2021 supercharged Yenko/SC Silverado.
If you’re not familiar with the name Yenko, allow us to give you a brief history lesson. Yenko was a family-owned Chevrolet dealership in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, that operated from 1949-’82. This dealership is best known for building some of the most iconic muscle cars to come out of the ’60s, which are now extremely collectible. Yenko first took a 1967 Camaro and outfitted it with a larger engine, better suspension, more robust drivetrain, along with a custom hood and graphics package. They continued to modify different vehicles over the years before closing their doors. In 2009, the Yenko name was purchased, and the brand was brought back.
The Yenko/SC Silverado is not your average truck by any means. This monster not only cranks out 800 horsepower but 720 lb-ft of torque from the 378 cubic-inch engine. Specialty Vehicle Engineering starts with a blueprinted LT1 aluminum engine block and then adds a race-quality balanced rotating assembly. This mill includes a forged rotating assembly and pistons, CNC ported cylinder heads, and the companies own brand centrifugal supercharger system. However, the modifications don’t stop there. Custom stainless steel headers and high flow cats are also part of this package. Plus, the engine and drivetrain include a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty for peace of mind.
The stylish Yenko/SC truck will also receive some exterior modifications. Yenko/SC racing stripes will separate it from the rest of the crowd along with custom wheels and 800HP badges, letting them know this truck means business.
With only 50 of these trucks being built, you might want to know how to get your hands on one. For that information, you can contact Specialty Vehicle Engineering at (732) 240-3696 ext. 173 for more details and pricing.
