Callaway recently introduced its SC627 Corvette Stingray which, as you may have guessed, produces 627 horsepower thanks to its 6.2-liter supercharged LT1 V8 engine. The folks at Callaway know what they’re doing when it comes to Corvettes, having produced special, high performance versions of the sports car for over 25 years now.
Callaway’s attention to the small, fine details are part of what has made the brand both popular and successful. It often goes above and beyond what other tuners will do, offering complete Corvette rebodies, attractive exterior accessories and completely re-done interiors. Their SC627 may not be as extreme as some of their other projects, but the attention to detail is still there.
This point is exemplified in the car’s ‘supercharged’ Stingray badge. The normal C7 Corvette comes with a Stingray badge on its sides just aft of the front quarter-panel vents. The SC627 also features a logo bearing resemblance to the water-dwelling ray, but in Callaway’s case, the Stingray is wearing a supercharger on its back.
Callaway’s SC627 package for the Stingray is available for $22,995 from a select group of authorized Callaway/Chevrolet dealers. That sounds a little pricey, but if you can trust anyone with supercharging your Corvette, it’s the people at Callaway. And even if you don’t trust them, a 5 year/100,000 mile Extended Powertrain Service Contract is also available.
