The National Corvette Museum has taken to offering virtual tours of some of its exhibits on its official YouTube channel, like the one embedded above, which features the 750-horsepower Callaway Super Speedster – based on the C4 Chevrolet Corvette ZR-1. Only two Super Speedsters were ever built, making it a rare and exclusive vehicle.
Hosted by Chris Chessnoe, the Program Manager at Callaway Cars, this quick, 3-and-a-half-minute video provides quite a bit of information on the Super Speedster and how it came to be. Chessnoe reviews the various changes made to the car’s body, such as the rear fenders, which are approximately two inches wider on either side than those on a factory ZR-1.
While the Super Speedster seems perfectly at home in the Corvette Museum, Chessnoe says its original owner actually used it as part of a massive, fluorescent display at the National Corvette Restorers Society (NCRS) Winter Regionals that resembled a gigantic billiards table. How 1980s is that?
