Reeves Callaway and his team are at it again. Starting with the already potent 2015 Corvette Z06, they have added their own touch to create a version that trumps the competition. The 2015 Callaway Corvette Z06 is a powerful take on an American icon, and as an April 21 release from Callaway Cars tells us, it will be on display during the National Corvette Museum’s C7 Bash tonight through Saturday, April 25.
For those not familiar with Reeves Callaway, his father Ely was the founder of Callaway Golf, and a true innovator of the sport. Since 1985, Callaway Cars has worked with Chevrolet to take production Corvettes and Camaros to the next level.
To create more power in the new Z06, Callaway has developed a new “GenThree” supercharger that is 32 percent larger than the factory blower. In a nod to traditional hot-rodding, they opened the center of the hood to expose the supercharger’s lid. Cool air running along the hood is an efficient way to keep intake temperatures down. The air-to-water intercooler is also much larger, which should prevent heat-soak on the track.
Unlike most aftermarket tuners, Callaway has worked alongside the Corvette assembly line since 1985. Their Autobahn proving facility in Leingarten is just a stone’s throw from Stuttgart, and ensures that this Z06 can run with anything it comes up against.
This package only adds $16,995 to the base MSRP, which is less than the premium some dealers charge on the Z06 itself. Callaway vehicles include a warranty from GM for 3 years or 36,000 miles, and can be serviced by any dealer. Also included are anodized door sills, numbered badges, embroidered floor mats, and a build sheet for the car. Your only headache will be shopping for tires capable of the power.
