The 650-horsepower Corvette Z06 is a beastly machine, but a company by the name of Specialty Vehicle Engineering (SVE) has gone a step farther. Well, actually more like 150 steps. The company's latest vehicle is the 2017 Yenko/SC Corvette, and Corvette Grand Sport-based vehicle packs 800 horses under its hood.

SVE puts quite a bit of work into the LT1 engine in the Yenko/SC. It displaces 6.8-liters, and features a fully balanced rotating assembly. The crank and rods are forged steel, and the pistons are forged aluminum. The block is then topped with ported and polished LT1 heads and a supercharger supported by the fuel system from the Z06's LT4 engine. In addition to the 800 horsepower, the engine produces 750 lb-ft of torque.

That engine can be coupled to either a 7-speed manual or 8-speed automatic, and customers can have the whole powertrain in either a coupe or convertible. Regardless of transmission or body style, the car will feature Yenko stripes available in an array of colors, a cast-aluminum quad-tip exhaust, a new rear bumper with diffuser, and Yenko badging inside and out. Also, since the car is based on the Grand Sport, it comes with all of that car's performance upgrades, including wider fenders, magnetorheological suspension, Brembo brakes, limited-slip differential, and dry-sump oil system.

Now to own one of the baddest C7 Corvettes, you'll need a pretty impressive wallet. The package costs $46,000, and you'll have to purchase or provide a Grand Sport to be modified. The Grand Sport starts at $66,445, so you'll be looking at a price of $112,445. To put that into perspective, a Corvette Z06 will run just over $80,000 with no options. Don't take too long to make a decision though, since SVE will only build 50 of these Yenko/SC Corvettes.
