Chevrolet shows off refreshed 2019 Camaro at SEMA in Shock yellow

Since the new SS front end has debuted with the huge grille opening with a black bar running through the middle, carrying the bowtie badge. Ho hum. While some might appreciate its new "Shock" paint job, that auto doesn't hold a candle to the Camaro pictured here: The 1,000-horsepower (745-kilowatt) Yenko Stage II Camaro built by Specialty Vehicle Engineering.

Special Vehicle Engineering, which has rights to use the Yenko name, has been cranking out tuned Yenko-badged Camaros for a few years now.

Whichever stage you choose, each Yenko/SC Camaro gets a custom-built engine that's based on the LT1 but is stroked to 6.8 liters using a forged 4340 steel crankshaft, forged H-beam connecting rods, and forged aluminum pistons. If the 1,000-horsepower Stage II is the beast for you, check out the brochure for all the colours and fun accessories you can get, like "1000hp" trunk stickers, "Yenko" badges, and more stickers so that people know you're gunning for that Dodge Demon. The heads were also upgraded significantly with custom CNC-porting along with a higher-output fuel system to support the big power.

Because the 650hp LT4 under the hood of a Camaro ZL1 just wasn't enough, Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) just released the 2019 Yenko/SC Camaro. Unfortunately, a non-functional hood scoop and grille are the only type of hood scoop and grill you can have on your Stage II. Buyers can pick from 10 different body colors and nine different colors for the contrasting stripe decals.

Stage 1 cars ride on five-spoke 20-inch alloy wheels in a gunmetal finish, while Stage 2 cars get the same wheels in black.

Sharing Your Location and ETA in Google Maps is Much Better Now
The feature was recently updated for Android users back in August and now it can be used from an iPhone, as well. Google has just announced that Maps is now much better at allowing users to share their ETAs with the loved ones.

Pricing for the Stage I kit starts at $46,995 before options (minus the cost of the Camaro SS 1LE).

As you might've guessed, getting your Camaro to Yenko spec won't be cheap.

Chevrolet announced that it will be showing off a mildly customized 2019 Chevy Camaro at this year's SEMA Show. But if you do get one, you'll join a pretty exclusive club. That version, too, will be limited to just 25 examples.

The Yenko/SC Camaro is available to order at select GM dealers in the USA and Canada.
