Callaway has done it again. The storied tuning division has taken the 2016 Chevrolet Camaro and done wondrous things with the standard 6.2-liter LT1 V8 engine, thus, creating the 2016 Callaway Camaro SC610
Regretfully, Callaway has not published any official photos of the Callaway Camaro SC610, and only provided the photo above, showing off the dressed up engine bay.
And yes, the “SC610” badge stands for 610 hp coming from the GenThree Supercharger, a 2300 cc Eaton TVS unit found in the Callaway Corvette SC757. Callaway stated it was able to fit the more advanced supercharge thanks to the 2016 Camaro’s Alpha platform usage.
“With Camaro’s new ‘Alpha’ architecture, our engineers were able to incorporate the GenThree Supercharger that we originally developed for the Callaway Corvette SC757,” said Mike Zoner, Managing Director of Callaway Cars. “We designed the Corvette system from a clean sheet of paper, applying features to increase airflow quality and reduce charge air temperature. Once we were able to adapt GenThree for the new Camaro, we produced dramatically more power – without jeopardizing reliability.”
Additionally, a Callaway air inlet system is onboard to further performance increases.
Standard Callaway cues are present outside to disguish the Camaro SC610 including, Callaway carbon fiber engine mid covers, an under hood build plaque with VIN, interior and exterior badging, door sill panels, and embroidered floor mats are included as standard equipment. Each Callaway Camaro SC610 comes with an authenticity documentation package as well.
The 2016 Callaway Camaro SC610 will be available in both manual and automatic variants, and in coupe or convertible body styles. If you’re in the market, Callaway will perform its magic for the price of $54,290. If you already own your own sixth-generation Camaro, Callaway asks $16,995.
