We’ve already seen some of the performance offered by the Callaway SC757 package for the Chevrolet C7 Corvette Z06, watching it go for a hot lap at Thompson Speedway, and seeing it hit 202.3 miles per hour at Mojave Magnum. And just recently, MotorWeek had the privilege of putting the SC757 Z06 through its paces.
If you hadn’t realized it yet, the SC757 nomenclature represents the 757 horsepower that Callaway’s performance enhancements yield, with a lucky 777 lb-ft of torque to go with it. MotorWeek notes that the 0-60 time was two-tenths faster than a stock Corvette Z06 with an automatic gearbox. The SC757 also completes the quarter-mile in 10.5 seconds, over half a second quicker than a stock Z06 with a 7-speed manual, which takes 11.2 seconds.
It’s worth noting that completely stock Corvette Z06 modles with the automatic transmission have completed the quarter mile in an even quicker 10.41 seconds. Does this mean that the Callaway SC757 package isn’t worth the $18,000 price tag? That’s on the potential buyer to decide.
Of course, the SC757 package offers more than just speed; standard equipment includes Callaway interior and exterior badging along with a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty. Hit play to see MotorWeek’s review of the SC757 Z06 for yourself, then give us your thoughts on it in the comment section below.
