Vette Magazine: A Conversation with Reeves Callaway

by Keith Cornett on January 29, 2007

Reeves Callaway and the 2007 Callaway C16Back in the 80′s, Callaway Cars became the first GM Authorized tuner of new Corvettes offered through Chevrolet dealerships. Callaway’s twin-turbo B2K program (the RPO code for the Callaway option) became the genesis for a company that would go on to produce the 254 MPH Corvette Sledgehammer, the 450 HP SuperNaturals and the radically modified C12. Basking in the glow of his latest project, the Callaway C16, Reeves Callaway takes some time to talk with Vette Magazine about why one of the most recognized brands in the Corvette tuner industry has gotten back into the game. In addition to the C16 program, Callaway offers a variety of performance options for the C6 Corvette, most notably the Callaway Superchargers. And talk about turnkey! A customer can order a new Corvette, have it shipped to a Callaway facility where it is modified and tested, and then shipped to the dealer for delivery. The modified Corvettes carry a 5-Year, 100K Mile warranty to boot! But perhaps some the biggest news out of the interview is Callaway’s intention to return to LeMans with 2 Callaway cars competing in the GT2 class. Reeves claims there are a lot of hurdles to cross before the final commitment is made, most notably development and sponsorship issues. Click here to read the entire interview at Vette Magazine.
