A shooting brake variant of the new 2014 Corvette Stingray? Callaway figures why the heck not.
Corvette specialist Callaway is known for its work in designing and engineering unique versions of America’s supercar for years. Now that the new C7 Corvette Stingray is out in the open, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that Callaway would soon do something interesting. That day has come as we present Callaway’s AeroWagon, essentially a shooting brake version of the C7. Yes, it’s different but so was the Ferrari FF when it first debuted. But Callaway isn’t just adding some rear structure to the C7 and calling it a day.
No, the company’s new rear hatch design incorporates the use of carbon fiber structural elements that were developed using a Resin Transfer Molding process, allowing the components to be both strong and lightweight. Callaway is claiming a top speed of over 200 mph, but since the AeroWagon is powered by the same 6.2-liter V8 with 450 horsepower as the standard Stingray, we’re not sure how that’ll be possible without some engine revisions - the Stingray's top speed is likely under the 200 mark. If demand is sufficient, Callaway plans to produce the AeroWagon for a price that won’t exceed $15,000.
