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 AeroWagon will arrive at the local Callaway dealer this fall, to be displayed beside the Stingray. Referred to as the 2014 Callaway AeroWagon Concept, the rendering illustrates how Callaway expects the C7 Corvette Stingray to look after it has its way with it.
Chevrolet introduced its all-new Corvette C7 Stingray, redefining modern performance. And only a Chevrolet Corvette with the perfect combination and balance of design, technology, and performance can have the Stingray designation.
The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray boasts an estimated power of 450 hp and torque of 450 lb.-ft., making it the most powerful standard edition ever. And with the ability to accelerate 0-60 in just less than four seconds as well as the ability to achieve over 1g in cornering grip, the new Stingray is also considered most capable standard model. Aside from these, it is also expected to become the most fuel-efficient Corvette, going beyond the previous model’s EPA-estimated 26 mpg.
According to GM North America’s president, Mark Reuss, like the 1963 Sting Ray, the best Chevy Corvettes delivered cutting-edge technologies, carried breathtaking design, embodied performance leadership, and offered awe-inspiring driving experiences. But the all-new Corvette, he said, goes farther than this, thanks to modern advancements in technology, design, and engineering.
Furthermore, the all-new Corvette C7 Stingray shares just two aspects of the earlier-generation Corvette. All the rest are new, from chassis and frame structure, to supporting technologies, to powertrain, to interior and exterior designs.
