2008 Callaway Corvette Built With 580 HP

January 24th, 2008 by tonks in Uncategorized

Callaway Corvette EngineCallaway is based out in Connecticut and is known for fixing up and fine tuning Corvettes. They have just announced that their brand new 2008 Callaway Corvette will be built with a supercharger package that will increase the power to 580 horsepower in the C6 Corvette.

If anyone wants this new upgrade all they need to do is pay $18,500 to add on the extra 150 horsepower over a stock 430-hp 6.2L LS3 V8, but will also get a host of engine improvements, a 3-year/36,000 mile warranty and still be able to meet California’s strict emissions standards. Callaway has also announced a new, more powerful supercharger for its super-Vette, the C16.

The new spool increases output of the hand-built LS3 engine from 616 to 650 hp. It’s also fitted with new cylinder heads and valvetrain, a custom cold-air intake, special free-flowing exhaust system and remapped ECU, in addition to the carbon-ceramic brakes, suspension and wheels. Callaway offers the C16 with its custom bodywork and leather interior in coupe and convertible forms for about $150k, or double that for the stunning Speedster. The extra 34 harnessed horses should help the updated C16 break its already-impressive 3.3-second 0-60 time, 11-second ¼ mile and 210 mph top end.

    Pleasurable piece. I can’t help but to write, I have a inner need for it. If I’m not in the middle of some literary project, I’m utterly lost, unhappy and distressed. As soon as I get started, I calm down.
