Callaway Cars is headed to the Corvettes at Carlisle event in Carlisle, Pennsylvania, and it’s bringing its supercharged Callaway C8 Corvette along for the ride. The supercharged Stingray will be decked out with a variety of custom upgrades, including Callaway’s wide body package. The Corvettes at Carlisle event will run from August 24th to August 26th.
“Spotlighting the debut of the production Callaway Supercharged Corvette C8s, as well as the new C8 Wide Body Package, Callaway staff will be there to show you the latest creations and answer all of your questions,” Callaway Cars writes on social media. In addition to the supercharged Corvette Stingray, Callaway will also display the company’s GMC Sierra, used to tow one of its Corvettes from the company headquarters in Connecticut.
For those readers who may be unaware, Callaway Cars is now offering a new supercharger conversion for the C8 Corvette Stingray. Highlights include three-element TripleCooled intercooler and CalCal powertrain management calibration.
The upgrade boosts the Stingray’s 6.2L V8 LT2 gasoline engine to produce a maximum of 687 horsepower at 6,450 rpm and 643 pound-feet of torque a 4,450 rpm, well above the 490 horsepower and 465 pound-feet of torque produced in stock guise. The extra oomph is enough to send the C8 Corvette Stingray to 60 mph in 2.67 seconds, and down the quarter mile in 10.64 seconds at 129 mph, per Callaway’s estimates.
The supercharged C8 Corvette that Callaway cars is bringing will also be equipped with the company’s new wide body kit, which adds some substantial width to the machine. Draped in bright orange paint and adorned with carbon fiber aero and new alloy wheels, this Vette is definitely a looker.
The Corvettes at Carlisle event will take place Thursday through Saturday, 7 a.m. to 6 p.m. local time, at the Carlisle Fairgrounds. Daily tickets are $20, while a Spectator Event Pass is $40. Kids ages 12 and under get in free. Parking is $10.
