The Callaway name is most often associated with high-performance General Motors vehicles, but the company does more than churn out brutally fast street cars. It also walks the walk with its motorsport program Callaway Competition, which has a long history in GT3 racing, including more than 25 years of success with the Leingarten Germany team and International GT series. Now, as a nod to Callaway Competition’s 25th anniversary, the company has introduced a new special edition Chevy Corvette C7 called the Callaway Champion.
Based on the C7-generation Z06, the Callaway Champion Chevy Corvette comes with a long list of upgrades over the standard factory vehicle, the most impactful of which is the Callaway SC757 Power Package. To note, the SC757 package includes Callaway’s GenThree blower and TripleCooled intercooler system, as well as a high-flow intake and a variety of badging and emblems. The package also includes new floor mats and new door sill panels for the cabin.
All told, the engine upgrades boost output to 757 horsepower at 6,500 rpm and 777 pound-feet of torque at 4,500 rpm, with the 0-to-60 mph sprint done in 2.8 seconds and the quarter mile done in 10.5 seconds at 131 mph. Quick, to be sure.
The latest special edition Callaway Champion Chevy Corvette also runs a Double D Exhaust System and heavy-duty Level 2 cooling upgrades. Outside, the C7’s shark-like styling is complemented by a new Callaway Europe Rear Spoiler, GT3 rear wing, and NineSpoke wheels, while a fully upgraded suspension setup keeps it all shiny side up. Final touches include an S3 shifter and harness bar.
The new special edition Chevy Corvette will be produced at Callaway’s facilities in Connecticut and California. Interested buyers can order one from a Callaway Authorized Dealer in the U.S. and Canada, as well as at BH Auction on Tokyo, and Autohaus Kramm in Berlin. Only 25 will be produced.
