LA Auto Show: The Callaway C16


Callaway Cars continues to raise the bar of the Corvette platform to new heights with the all new Callaway C16. For their 16th model, Callaway takes a C6 Corvette and adds their handcrafted bodywork to every part of the car. But the real action is under the hood. A supercharger is added to the 6.0 liter LS2 which increases the base horsepower to 616 with 582 ft-lbs of torque at 4,750 rpm. The C16 does 0-60 in 3.3 seconds and a quarter mile in 10.9 seconds. Top speed is 206 mph but get this, the C16 has a fuel efficiency rating of 18 mpg city/28 mpg highway! GM should also take a look at the C16’s interior as Callaway knows how the cockpit of a world-renowned supercar should look like. German leather and alcantara is used throughout. The door panels, steering wheel and passenger dash feature the signature Callaway badging. As the cars are built to order, customers can choose their exterior/interior colors to their taste. A well-equipped C16 Coupe goes for $119,865. Still a bargain compared to other super sportscars.
