Callaway Cars announced they will be building a convertible version of the Z06 Corvette based C16 Coupe. The C16 Convertible will debut at the New York International Car Show in April. Like the C16 Coupe, the convertible version is available with either the 560 hp Supercharged V8 or the optional high performance 616 hp Supercharged 6.0 Liter V8. According to Callaway Cars, the C16 Convertible is capable of 0 to 60mph in 3.5 seconds and a quarter-mile in 11.2 sec while top speed is estimated at just over 200 mph.
“Customers who want the exhilaration of a convertible and the daily driver convenience of a paddle-shift automatic without sacrificing the performance capabilities of a Z06 and beyond, can only get it here,” says company founder Reeves Callaway. “With this car we have maintained the C16â€™s class-leading performance, while creating a gorgeous convertible version, based on one of the best sports car platforms ever made. In true Callaway tradition it incorporates our race-proven technologies and superlative craftsmanship in an arresting and appealing style.”Pricing for a fully loaded C16 Convertible is $128,765 USD. All Callaway C16 Convertible components are available individually, for both new and currently owned Corvettes, through Callaway authorized retailers and installers.
