The car is able to produce 450 brake horsepower at 5,600 rpm and accelerates from 0 to 60 in 5.4 seconds. It can cover a quarter mile in 13.5 seconds, topping out at 105 miles per hour. An eight-cylinder engine with a displacement capacity of 427 cubic inches powers the vehicle and produces 460 pound-feet of torque at 4,000 rpm. A four-speed Muncie M21 transmission accompanies the engine.

The car features an independent suspension and heavy-duty Z/28 coil springs on the front wheels, an anti-roll bar and inverted coil spring suspensions with shock absorbers on the rear wheels. The car weights 3,050 pounds. The wheelbase of the vehicle measures 108 inches.

Don Yenko made very few additions to the interior. He mounted a large tachometer on the steering wheel, placed three gauges below the radio and added sYc embroidery on the seats. The rest of the interior is identical to an unmodified 1969 Chevrolet Camaro.
