A 1000HP Yenk/SC Vette is coming for all you suckas’
Story | Phillip Pratt
Between all these SS’s, Hellcats, Demons and Shelby’s being more and more within the reach of everyday enthusiasts, it’s becoming hard to look at “Super” and “Hyper” cars and appreciate them for more than their name and exotic looks. Well ladies and gents, Yenko/SC just made that even more difficult. Based off of the 2019 Corvette Grand Sport Coupe and drop-top, their exclusive version of the already scary fast car will sport a modified supercharged 6.8L, V8 putting out a mind-numbing 1000HP! Don’t get too excited though. At the moment they are only putting out about 25 cars with this set up they are dubbing Stage II. Yes, because there’s a “Stage II”, they will also be offering a milder “Stage I” version which will have a measly 835HP (I’m being sarcastic). Both versions of the car will be 50-state emissions friendly, so our Cali-brethren can also join in on the fun.
The Stage II Yenko/SC will have a bunch of Z06 goodies including 6-piston Brembos married to ginormous 14″ rotors (14.6″ in the front and 14.4″ in the rear, to be exact), a dry-sump oil set-up, and the Magnetic Ride Control. The 7-speed manual transmission will cost you $68,995 and the 8-speed automatic $77,995. Expensive, but not really. It’s still beating the GTR and is a fraction of the cost of most exotics. But if that’s the ceiling, then the Stage I Yenko/SC Corvette will be delivering all that power for presumably less than $68k. Quite a deal. Still, want to drop 500k on a Lambo?
