Specialty Vehicle Engineering has shown their newest creation—a C8 Chevrolet Corvette with 1,000 horsepower. With its upgraded twin-turbocharged 6.2-liter LT2 V-8 engine, the Yenko/SC is among the most impressive tuner Corvettes to date.

A unique camshaft, two 58-mm water-cooled turbochargers, a forged steel crankshaft, forged H-beam rods, forged aluminum pistons, and an aluminum block complete the V-8 in the Yenko/SC.

The LT2's 1,000 horsepower are the result of a number of modifications, including a custom intake manifold, an ARP high-strength head, CNC-ported high-flow cylinder heads, replacement fuel system components, valve covers, and a tune. In order to manage the increased power, SVE additionally enhances the eight-speed dual-clutch transmission.

On the inside, the builder adds the SYC emblem by stitching it into the floor mats and headrests. Owners may have the 1,000-horsepower Corvette in convertible or coupe style, and it comes in every color that the manufacturer provides. When it comes to the SYC graphics, SVE gives you nine color options and a carbon fiber option as a tenth.

Also, customers have the opportunity to choose an alternative color for the Yenko-badged brake calipers, which come in red as standard. SVE adds distinctive silver or black exhaust tips to round off the enhanced powerplant. The wheels are available in a variety of finishes and three different styles: 19 inches up front and 20 inches at the back.

For the 2024 model year, SVE is producing a limited run of 10 Yenko/SC Corvettes. In 2025, it plans to double production to 50 vehicles. The starting price is $99,995, and it doesn't include the donor car.
