Well you figure the HPE550 is 62,500, the phase 1 bet will come in at about 67-68, phase 2 74-75 and phase 3 about 80. I would really like to have a Yenko but the wife is threatening me with divorce the way it is. Looks like I do what most will do and buy a SS and do the mods myself. It would be a good investment thou figure if you don't drive it you can give it to your kids and it should be worth about 175 by then. My heart said yes but the economy, my wallet and bed partner give it a no.

But I honestly think if they topped out the Price at 55 it would be great for us, them, and GM. What good would it do if only the rich can afford it, I hope their not just building a car that rich daddy would get for their kids 16th birthday. Yenko, GM don't forget get the middle class, we could do wonders given the chance.

FYI, it is *NOT* GM (General Motors) that has released this particular prototype and is putting out these press releases, but GMCI (General Marketing Capital Incorporated). General Motors and GMCI are 2 *seperate entities*, and share nothing other than 2 letters in their abbreviated titles...

If the guy that is going through with this is listening.............if your going to do something.........make it different.

I'm sure he'd be impressed with today's ZO6

TVS cars are so not Yenko
Okay i can definatly agree with you on that, im SO tired of all these TVS supercharged Camaros coming out left and right, every performance company says "oh Camaro? okay lets throw a TVS on it!" its the same thing every time, we've seen it, THAT is why i dont support the LSA in the Z28 (also because its rather heavy with added fluid and parts)...i much preffer the LS7, either for a Yenko or a Z28, if one of them made a supercharged LS3 and one made an LS7 id buy the one that offered the LS7, whether it was Yenko or a Z/28 idc, they're both amazing and the LS7 would totally win me over either way...im way tired of superchargers, lol

But also you cant say Yenko cant supercharge, i mean id much MUCH rather not see another company get sucked into the supercharging fiesta, but dont forget Yenko did Turbo Charge most of their later cars

Yenko/SC 427 Camaro

The ONLY 2010 Camaro endorsed by both the Yenko family and the Yenko Sportscar Club. YS-1001, features a true 427, the Corvette Z-06, 550HP, 560TQ, custom headers, valve covers, Yenko/SC badging and custom Yenko interior. Here going against a real 1969 Yenko 427 Camaro, both autos.








Valve cover.

SEMA 2009: Yenko Camaro cuts through the aftermarket fog


There a lot of new Camaros here at SEMA. In fact, depending upon your depth of exhaustion, residual blood-alcohol level from last night and general brain-deadedness, you might be forgiven for thinking that every other car here is a Camaro. And some of them, well, ain't so great. Useless ground effects packages, 24-inch wheels, shoddy workmanship and terrible eye-searing colors are your bag, man. That said, some Camaros do manage to cut through the crap using simple tools like quality and understatement. May we present to you the new Yenko Camaro, a quiet, big stick-carrying badass in a sea of noise.

Now, as we previously pointed out, this is the Phase I Yenko – meaning that instead of sporting a 427 cid like Yenko 'Maros of yore, the new one has a supercharged version of GM's LS3, the 6.2-liter V8 that comes standard with the Camaro SS. Purists (can Yenko fans be considered purists?) might grouse and claim a non-427 is lame, but we'll say two things on the matter. First, the supercharged LS3 will make at least 600 horsepower. Nothing lame about that. Second, Phase II and Phase III Yenkos are coming and you can bet they'll have Z06-sourced LS7 427, tuned to who knows how high. And, judging by the competition, an LS9 Yenko isn't out of the question.

They are saying they are endorsed by Yenko family and enthusiasts..others are saying they arent...so who is correct and who has proof? At the end of the day I kinda agree with this guy

IMHO.... I think that if a company, regardless of who it is, is willing to go out in public at a show as big as SEMA and announce the "Yenko" Camaro, they have to have something backing them up, whether it be trademarked name or registered name. I find it hard to believe that they would put themselves out like that and risk legal action. But hey, I could be wrong. We will see.

Remember not all Yenko's had the same drive train's. Most people remember just the 427 big blocks. There also was 350's and different models.

Very true, in fact most folks do not know Don Yenko's first attempt at selling hi-po cars in quanity was the '66 Yenko Stinger Corvair and ended in 1981 with a turbo charged small block Z.

But, say the word Yenko to most musclecar enthusiasts and ask what comes to mind, most will say 427, usually the Camaro.

Does anybody know where you can purchase the wheels from? I have been searching and cannot find anything. Also does anybody know if they come in 20" instead of 22"?

Here is the Clary's 2010 Yenko in the SYC display at the MCACN show.

Only real Super Cars are allowed in the display. Check out the hardware in the background.
