    Exclamation Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Mus

    Filed under: Aftermarket, Convertible, Coupe, Performance, Chevrolet


    Callaway showed off its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum last week, giving the rampant enthusiasts of America's sports car a look at the roughly 620-horsepower, supercharged rocket.

    Unlike the Corvette SC610 we showed you back in January, this Stingray packs a fair bit more oomph. Horsepower is only up ten ponies, but torque has jumped from 556 pound-feet to "at least" 600 pound-feet. Neither horsepower nor torque is official quite yet, although Callaway is expecting to know just what its creation can do once testing and validation is completed later this month.

    The 6.2-liter, supercharged V8 now boasts a new, three-element intercooler, which Callaway claims only allowed the inlet air temperature to increase by ten degrees Fahrenheit during dyno runs. Previous designs saw a 35-degree-Fahrenheit jump. The exhaust system has also been fettled with, and now is even less restrictive.

    Aesthetically, the Callaway Corvette borrowed a styling cue from the C6 Corvette ZR1, with its engine protruding through the hood. It's a rather clean look, and Callaway claims it further improves heat transfer.

    The total cost for the 2014 Callaway Corvette is $22,995, in addition to the cost of a donor Corvette. Take a look below for a brief press release from Callaway.Continue reading Callaway debuts its new C7 Stingray at National Corvette Museum

    My Goodness.....what can anyone say except WOW! Ever since the 1997 look came out, this car has literally gotten sweater and sweater every time they tweaked the style and look. They've truly done this classic a solid in keeping it's legacy going and improving.

    This Stingray is absolutely insane! For $80K, it's not bad considering what you get as an equal in the foreign makes. Once they introduced this style a few years ago with the clear, non-retractable headlights it's gone to another level. If I could do it, I would either get this white or that atomic orange color. Even the yellow ones in this car look amazing. They're all awesome!
