Callaway’s AeroWagon package transform your C7 coupe into a three-door shooting brake, with additional cargo space, a rear hatch, and a totally unique look to the already startlingly fresh Stingray (no option for rear seats, though). It can be added to a base Corvette or to a car with the Z51 performance package. Callaway will also have its own tuned, 610-horsepower version, which the company expects to push the Corvette AeroWagon into the 200-mile-per-hour-plus range of supercar.
The price of the Aerowagon package starts at an additional $15,000 on top of the price of your Corvette, and it comes with a natural carbon-fiber finish. For another $1500, it can be painted to match the original body color.
Orders are being taken now (more details in the press release, below), with production of the AeroWagon beginning in January.
2014 Callaway AeroWagon Concept
SANTA ANA, CALIFORNIA March 14, 2013 – Callaway Cars released renderings today of the company’s design study for a C7 Corvette-based shooting brake concept, with Callaway’s long-time design guru, Paul Deutschman of Deutschman Design, Montréal, QC, providing the styling direction. Callaway plans to manufacture the body package providing an openable hatch that would result in a unique configuration and increased interior space, positioning the Corvette in the elite class of two door shooting brakes. Callaway’s AeroWagon body will be manufactured in their proprietary RTM process for structural carbon parts. The KRTM (Krämer Resin Transfer Molding) process produces load carrying carbon parts in one swift molding step.
Fitted to the Callaway version of the C7 Corvette, the Callaway AeroWagon is projected to be a 200+ mph automobile while still returning the highest mileage rating in the supercar segment.
OCTOBER 1, 2013 UPDATE: Introductory price of the AeroWagon package has been set at $15,000 in natural carbon fiber finish and a painted-to-match body color option has been set at an additional $1,500. AeroWagon production is scheduled to commence in January 2014. Orders are being accepted now. To place your order or for more information, contact Joanne Mercer at Callaway’s Connecticut factory: 860 434 9002, Monday through Friday, 8 AM to 5 PM.
