Famous Corvette tuner and builder Callaway pulled the wraps off of its first tuned version of the 2014 Corvette Stingray at the National Corvette Museum Bash over the weekend, giving ‘Vette enthusiasts in attendance a sneak peak at Callaway’s upgrade kits for the seventh-generation of America’s sports car.
Callaway has topped off the 6.2-liter LT1 engine in the C7 with an Eaton TVS 2300 supercharger, which helped bring output up to 620 horsepower and “at least” 600 lb-ft of torque. It is also sporting a new three-element intercooler, which Callaway says allowed the temperature of inlet air to increase by only 10 percent during dyno runs. Previous cooling systems saw temperatures rise by as much as 35 percent. The exhaust system has also been re-tuned to be less restrictive, while Callaway’s famous D-style exhaust tips return, this time even bigger than before.
According to Callaway, durability, performance, drivability and emissions testing must be completed before the Callaway Corvette can be put into production. Additionally, advertised SAE horsepower and torque ratings have yet to be announced pending additional calibration, which is scheduled to conclude in May. Once it’s ready, the Callaway Corvette will cost you $22,995. That’s on top of the price of the donor Corvette, of course.
