If you know Corvette, chances are you also know Callaway, which has been making unique Corvettes for as long as we can remember. And the company just designed another splendid custom Corvette that sports the shooting brake body style, which has traditionally incorporated a coupe-style cabin with the rear end of a wagon. Shooting brakes, in general, have seen somewhat of a resurrection lately, being shown by several manufacturers in concept and production cars.
Upon first glance, the Callaway AeroWagon’s shooting brake design is very attractive and seems to be right at home on the C7. And get this: the rear hatch will contain carbon fiber structural elements developed using the company’s proprietary Resin Transfer Molding process, which should allow it to be both strong and lightweight. In addition, Callaway says the AeroWagon will be able to reach over 200 MPH, though how it will achieve this feat isn’t clear just yet, as the “base” 2014 Corvette Stingray isn’t likely to have a top speed exceeding 200 mph.
We hope that Callaway will bring this gorgeous creation to market when the new Corvette begins its North American roll-out later this year. How realistic is that wish? According to Callaway, the AeroWagon will see the light of day if demand is sufficient (isn’t the always the case?), with the company currently taking orders for the car, with the price expected to not exceed $15,000. If all goes as planned, the first Callaway AeroWagons should be lighting up the streets by the fourth quarter of 2013. Anyone want to go halfsies?
