Back in 1987, Callaway Cars introduced its first tuned Corvette to the world, with 345 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 178 mph. Even by today’s standards, that’s respectable. And at a price of just over $50,000, it had a fantastic bang-for-buck ratio, and would ultimately end up being a highly coveted object, as Callaway produced just 25 of them.
The coolest part about this particular modified corvette was that buyers could order the Corvette from dealers buy checking RPO code B2K. And for the car’s 25th anniversary, Callaway is putting something special together, which will be revealed April 23 at the National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky.
For the car’s 25th anniversary, the tuning company will fit a Corvette Grand Sport with a supercharger, a new exhaust, suspension upgrades, carbon fiber body parts, along with special wheels and tires. And just like the original model, lucky customers can order one through their dealership by selecting RPO B2K. The company is the only non-GM entity to have ever been granted an official RPO code for the Corvette.
Update: For the sake of clarity, we should point out that buyers can only purchase the vehicle through Chevy dealers authorized to sell Callaway Cars. Though because the 25th Anniversary Callaway Corvette is going to be such a limited run, not every Callaway authorized dealer will be offering one. You can find your nearest Callaway dealership here.
