You may not be able to buy one just yet but the folks at Callaway Cars Inc. may have the perfect Chevy SS for you, if you were looking for something more powerful than the factory model. Information is scarce but preliminary indications are that Callaway’s “SC570” performance kit will boost output from 415 to 570 horsepower while adding another 120 lb-ft in torque from 415 lb-ft.
As things stand, a bare bones Chevy SS with its base LS3 6.2L V8 motor is said to be capable of going from 0-60 MPH in around five seconds. Callaway believes however that their performance kit can lower that time to 4.5 seconds while achieving a quarter-mile run in 12.4 and 110 MPH.
Perhaps the lone disappointment is that initial impressions lead us to believe that Callaway has done little or nothing from an aesthetic perspective as their website indicates no body or interior modifications are included in the package beyond perfunctory badge work. In all, for a handsome sum of $18, 695, plus the car, your Callaway Chevy SS will include:
- Eaton Roots-style TVS supercharger system
- Liquid-to-air intercooler, integral to intake manifold base
- Increased flow rate fuel injectors
- High flow intake system
- Low restriction exhaust system
- Badging, exterior and interior
- Embroidered floor mats
- Callaway key fobs
- Callaway SS authenticity documentation
- Callaway 3 year/36,000 mile limited warranty
In total, including a base purchase price of $ 44,470, a Callaway SS is expected to fetch around $65,000 from prospective owners.
