800HP YENKO SIL­VER­ADO

4 Wheel & Off Road - - DRIVELINES -

The new Yenko Sil­ver­ado from Spe­cialty Ve­hi­cle Engi­neer­ing is in the spirit of the Ca­maros, Chev­elles, and No­vas that race driver and Chevro­let deal­er­ship owner Don Yenko “su­per tuned” in the 1960s and 1970s. Based on a stan­dard-cab, short-box Sil­ver­ado Z71, it is out­fit­ted with a su­per­charged, LT1-

based, 6.8L V-8 that makes 800 hp and 750 lb-ft of torque. There are still Ran­cho shocks, a lock­ing rear diff, and skid­plates on board, but off-road prow­ess may be ham­pered by the low­er­ing springs front and rear—all the bet­ter to hug the road when that power is ap­plied. Just 25 will be made. Visit spe­cial­tyve­hi­cleengi­neer­ing.com for more info.
