The 2014 Chevrolet Corvette Stingray – the fastest, most powerful and most technologically-advanced base Corvette in history – is just now starting to show up at dealers. And while we would be quite satisfied with the C7’s 455 horsepower (460 horsepower with the optional sport exhaust system), plenty of Stingray buyers and would-be Stingray buyers are already itching for more. That’s where aftermarket tuners enter the equation.
And one tuner whose history is closely entwined with that of Chevrolet’s flagship is Callaway. The company’s twin-turbo kit for the C4 in the late 1980s and early 1990s was so seamlessly integrated that GM treated it as a full-fledged factory-approved option package (assigning it the ordering code B2K). The C5-based C12 featured extra power and wider, considerably more European looking bodywork. And the supercharger kit for the C6 ‘Vettes transform them into ravenous beasts. So what does the Connecticut-based company have in store for the C7? If you believe the word on the street, it’s something very different.
