Callaway unveils new Corvette C7 GT3-R at ADAC GT Masters

The Season Finale of the ADAC GT Masters served as the setting of Callaway Competition's unveiling of its newest offering. After a brief presentation to invited guests and the media, the Callaway Corvette C7 GT3-R was officially displayed at Hockenheimring in Germany on October 3, 2015.

According to the brand, the Corvette C7 GT3-R is the successor of its C6-based Callaway Z06. Based in Leingarten, Germany, Callaway Competition has been in the business, since 1990, of manufacturing GT race cars.

Thus the company has the technical knowledge, the experience, and the wide network of professional and specialized partners in order to undergo such a huge undertaking. Though completed a few weeks ago, the C7 GT3-R is in fact the result of almost two years of planning, development, as well as fabrication of the different components.

Callaway boosts the 2014 Corvette Stingray to 627 hp

Callaway has just announced that it finalized its Corvette powertrain management system calibration. So, if you are not satisfied by the 450 hp and 450 lb-ft (610 Nm) of torque delivered by the 6.2-liter V8 engine you’d be happy to know that Callaway is able to boost the engine to an impressive 627 hp and 610 lb-ft (827 Nm) of torque.

According to the American tuner, these numbers were obtained thanks to a new supercharger system that includes a new intake manifold design, new intercooler design and a 2300cc high helix angle, four-lobe rotor pack.

In addition, the new intercooler system received three discrete liquid-to-air cooling elements that provide unequalled inlet air cooling efficiency.

2014 Callaway Corvette Stingray Convertible debuts at National Corvette Museum

Callaway unveiled a production prototype of its 2014 Callaway Corvette at the NCM Bash, National Corvette Museum in Bowling Green, Kentucky, from April 24 to 26, 2014. Callaway employees conducted an in-depth "walk-around" of the features of the new Callaway Corvette on April 25. The Callaway supercharged LT1 engine let out at least 620 hp pf output and at least 600 lb-ft of torque during development testing.

The company will unveil the SAE-corrected horsepower and torque rating after final powertrain management calibration later this month. Before that, the 2014 Callaway Corvette must first undergo durability testing and validation, performance and drivability testing, and emissions compliance testing.

The car’s supercharger engine features a new housing and integrated intake manifold for improved airflow and better charge air cooling capability. Engineers tuned the intake manifold runner cross-section and length for a broad torque band while allowing for an outstanding peak horsepower.

2014 Callaway Corvette SC610 upgrades the new Stingray

Earlier this week, Chevrolet launched the 2015 Corvette Z06 at the 2014 Detroit Auto Show. For those who can’t wait to get this car or simply want something else, Callaway offers a solution with their 2014 Corvette SC610. The well-known tuning company upgraded the 2014 Corvette Stingray with a new Eaton TVS (Twin Vortices Series) supercharger system, a Callaway Honker high flow intake system and Callaway Double-D stainless steel exhaust system.

As a result, the 6.2-liter V8 engine delivers 610 hp @ 6400 rpm and 556 lb-ft of torque @ 4500 rpm (standard version delivers 450 hp and 459 lb-ft of torque). With these numbers, the 2014 Callaway Corvette SC610 sprints from 0 to 60 mph (96 km/h) in just 3.5 seconds, runs the quarter mile in 11.0 seconds @ 125 mph and has a maximum lateral acceleration of 1.05 g.

As expected, Callaway didn’t stop here and its 2014 Corvette SC610 was fitted with a carbon hood surround/extractor with “Supercharged” emblems, Callaway exterior badging, new door sill panels, floor mats, underhood plaque with Vehicle Identification Number, a dash plaque and a Callaway key fob.

After getting their hands on the first 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra trucks last week, engineers at Callaway have commenced their work on developing their latest Supercharged versions of 2014 GM SportTrucks. Callaway will start product development, testing and validation of the 2014 Silverado and Sierra in the next few months.

Supercharged 5.3L and 6.2L versions of every GM pickup are expected to be available later this year. Using its proven supercharging techniques, Callaway expects to top 450 horsepower for the 5.3L versions and exceed 540 horsepower for the 6.2L version.

The new 5.3L and 6.2L EcoTec3 engine will integrate a number of technological advances like direct injection and variable valve timing, allowing engineers at Callaway to get greater control of engine operating parameters. The features will serve as tools for improving compatibility with supercharging’s positive manifold pressure for providing a better way for complying with emission rules and extended durability.

Callaway, the famed aftermarket Chevrolet customizer, has presented another variant of the Corvette Stingray, specifically a two-door wagon shooting brake. Callaway got a 2014 Stingray, took off the roof and installed a proprietary carbon addition that’s built using a one-step molding process dubbed Kramer Resin Transfer Molding (KRTM).

The company asserts that the Stingray shooting brake can be driven at speeds of more than 200 miles-per-hour and attain what it calls “the highest mileage rating in the supercar segment.” Callaway hasn’t revealed engine improvements yet to the stock 6.2-liter direct-injected V8 that delivers 450hp and 450 pound-feet of torque from the plant.

AeroWagon upgrade costs equal to or lower than $15,000, which is a good deal considering that the other high-performance shooting brake, the Ferrari FF, has a starting price of $295,000.

Callaway Cars is best known for creating supercars from GM production models but now, it is offering a high-performance pickup. The engineers at the American tuning firm, which was founded in 1977 by Reeves Callaway, are working on a Chevrolet Silverado with a 6.2-liter V-8 engine. However, they're also considering smaller-displacement versions.

Mike Vendetto, commercial manager for Callaway, said that a prototype of the Callaway Silverado is expected by the end of the year. He said that there'd a lot of development work to be done on the project, which is still on the design stage; but he anticipates that it will be completed by the end of 2010.

One of Callaway Cars' latest projects is the 2010 Callaway SC572 Camaro, which is available in select Chevrolet dealers.

Camaros seem to be a favorite inspiration at the SEMA Show. Already, we've made a note to view the Camaro variations from Hurst, Lingenfelter, and Yenko. Another one comes from Hendrick Motorsports, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary.

Hendrick will be rolling out 25 of these fully loaded SS Camaros, with each having a price tag of $76,181. Hendrick's version uses plenty of carbonfiber.

The lightweight material is used for the front splitter, rear diffuser, rear spoiler, rocker panels, and hood inserts.
